Tips

  • Maren Ingrid

    Torc Waterfall is located in the heart of Killarney National Park and is within easy walking distance. The highest fall height is 18m. A worthwhile destination for any hike (for example, on the way to Torc Mountain or along Kerry Way).

    Torc Waterfall is approximately 7 kilometres from Killarney Town and approx 2.5 kilometres from the motor entrance to Muckross House and is signposted from a carpark off the N71. A short walk of approx 200 metres brings you to the waterfall. From that point steps lead to another viewing point at a higher altitude that provides a view over the Middle Lake. The path is also part of the Kerry Way long distance walking route and a starting point for circular walking routes which are indicated by a map down at the start of the trail beside the car park. The waterfall which is approximately 20 metres high is at its best after heavy rainfall. Across the road from the car park jaunting cars can be hired for a trip to Muckross House within the National Park.(killarneynationalpark.ie/visit-us/torc-waterfall)

    Worthwhile reason for a short stay on the way to the Ring of Kerry.

    At the moment the Torc waterfall has little water. This will definitely increase again towards autumn.

    In spite of the many people worth seeing. A staircase leads to a bridge above the waterfall and hiking trails in the area.

    We visited the Torc Waterfall as part of a hike. We were able to enjoy the view on our own early on site and then go on a nice hike.

    What you usually don't see in the pictures of the waterfall are the crowds of tourists who crowd in front of it.

    Very nice, but the highlight, the Torc Mountain comes far behind.
