Well worth a stop
May 2021 • Couples
Nice short walk, but not for those with mobility issues. Free car park, free toilets, beautiful water falls and gorge. Picnic tables. Surprised by previous negative reviews objecting to payment. Great cafe next door.

Great view of the waterfall
Sep 2020 • Couples
First visit to this place. The walk was steep and loose underfoot. Not recommended for people with mobility issues. Well worth the climb though as the views were stunning. The descent was less of an issue. Highly recommended place to visit in North Wales.

Steep but pretty
Sep 2020 • Couples
The walk is very pretty and not especially long. The marked path makes a loop from the entry gate, down to the falls, and back up again.
As of 16 Sept the paid entry gate is still broken and they direct you to go through the vehicle gate to the side.
If you are not moderately fit and steady on your feet you will have trouble. The majority of the trail down and back up again is not so much "stairs" as it is walking on top of natural dirt and tree roots. The way back up is quite steep and we had to stop a couple of times (quarantine has us so weak!)
Overall it's a pretty way to spend less than an hour and get some nice pictures.

Stunning falls
Sep 2020
Absolutely stunning water falls; really nice walk too.

This really surpasses Swallow falls in the way that become unreserved in the trail and flow of water from top to bottom past 3 or 4 drop offs.

Cafe is nice; fair priced for a quick Torino or light snack.

£1.50 per person for entry; however, the styles are broken and the signs simply direct you to walk around them.

Disappointing
Aug 2020 • Couples
We visited after seeing some rather breathtaking pictures of Conwy Falls online, only to be greeted with a £1.50 charge (per person) to walk around a very rocky route. We saw a fall, which was ok but was not anything spectacular. Me and my parter carried on following the route expecting to see these magnificent falls we had seen in pictures only to find ourself a back at the beginning. Not worth the £3.00 paid, and don’t even bother of you have any sort of mobility issues! The only reason why this review has two stars is because we had a rather friendly robin come to sit with us whilst we were eating our lunch! Don’t waste your time visiting here! Swallow Falls is just down the road and is far more impressive!

Nice waterfall, not the best in the area
Aug 2020 • Couples
The walk to the waterfall is pleasant, if a little muddy. The charge of £1.50 is okay but this isn’t the best waterfall in the area (Swallow Falls are more impressive). If you’re passing by or have some free time, it’s a nice walk and makes for some good pictures. There’s also a lovely cafe at the top!

Don't forget your wallet!
Aug 2020 • Family
The falls themselves are lovely. Loud, crashing water. It's a 20 minute circular walk from the café. But thats it, 20 mins, maybe half an hour at a push. Adults £1.50, children £1. And don't let your children out of site.... some scary places they can fall down if not supervised!

Fencing needs improvement
Aug 2020 • Family
The fencing was very unstable and non-existent in places. I wouldn't have wanted to take very young children or go in slippery weather. At £5 per family of four for a short walk I'd expect the place to be better maintained.

Brief Visit
Jul 2020 • Family
Nice waterfall. It only a short walk, worth a visit if you are passing and have up to an hour to spare but there are much nicer places and waterfalls if you are looking for a half day or day out in Snowdonia

Spectacular scenery, thundering river, warmest of welcomes
Jul 2020
I visited Rhaeadr Y Graig Lwyd (Conwy Falls) on a slightly drizzly Sunday afternoon after heavy rain (also having earlier been verbally abused by the owners of the far inferior Fairy Glen - more of that in my separate review). On my visit, the gates were open, and on seeing me in a quandary the owner's representative said "just go in, the gates are open". However, I put a £1 in the dormant turnstile (plus the £2 I'd have liked to have given the Fairy Glen!), parking at the RYGL is free. The forest paths tower above the gorge where the Conwy and Machno rivers converge spectacularly, the surrounding forest park is delightful and you can walk down the public footpath past the Fairy Glen - in my view not worth the entry charge or frankly, the hassle. There are a number of spectacular falls and gorges around Betws Y Coed and in the sections of Snowdonia National Park surrounding the village, most of which are completely free. As a local resident who has done them all, in my view RYGL are the only falls it's worth paying to see (you can also partially see them free of charge from an old viewing platform on the other side of the gorge). Unlike the overly-commercial Swallow Falls, RYGL has plenty of space even on the busiest days. And unlike the Fairy Glen, you won't get abused or treated with disdain.
