A convenient place to start your exploration of Ireland's oldest national park, Torc Waterfall offers panoramic views of the region's three interlinked lakes. You can reach the base of the waterfall via a short trail through a densely wooded area, covered in moss and known for attracting herds of native red deer. This waterfall is an important natural landmark on one of the country's major long-distance walks, a 214 km (133 mi) long circular trail that begins and ends in the nearby town of Killarney. You can access this popular trail by ascending a series of steps just to the left of the waterfall. To see the fall at its full glory, visit after a heavy rain. Put Torc Waterfall into our Killarney road trip site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Killarney.

There had been plenty of rain the previous day so the waterfall was in full flow which added to its beauty. So worth a visit. more »
One of my favourite waterfall spots except be warned it's very popular! It's a very short, easy walk and the whole way are flowing cascades even in the middle of summer when we were there! I enjoyed the greenery the whole walk and the parking was free but very busy, we ended up parking on the side of the road
It was a nice waterfall, a short and relatively easy walk from the parking lot. A bit crowded, and the visitors’ center was closed (not sure what the hours are). Nice stop along the Ring of Kerry, but not my favorite part by any means.
