I'm not sure if these waterfalls really are a major attraction in Killarney NP, but my opinion is they're far from spectactular. If you're travelling on a schedule, you'll be better of spending your time doing something else.

The Torc waterfall is a lovely sight. It is worth following the routes show at the site and walking up the hill to the top of the waterfall. The scenery is breathtaking and the peacefullness reviving.

This is a nice place to visit if you're in Killarney and have some free time. Most people park at the bottom and walk up, but it seems as though fewer people are aware of the parking above the falls. Be aware of that option...More

This waterfall is right off of the main road that runs through the Killarney National Forest. It is a ten minute walk and just beautiful. It is a very busy place, we went toward evening and had no trouble with parking.

We went to Killarney National Park and did one of the walking trails that led us through the forest and ultimately to this waterfall. Although I have seen better, it is beautiful nonetheless and worth a visit

The Torc Waterfalls are gorgeous but it is quite a challenging hike. It would be wise to take water for the hike and take breaks along the way. Well worth the hike!

A short drive from Killarney. Easy walk to enjoy the falls. Parking a little tight. Worth the visit. Additional hiking trails at this attraction.

I have difficulty walking but the modest hike up to the walls was worth it. The falls with were beautiful and we commented that the stream looked like the source of Guiness rich brown water with a creamy froth as it rushed down from the...More

Once in Killarney National Park do the short stroll to Torc Waterfall. It is easy to reach on the paved path. Bathrooms and parking are available at this location. Killarney National Park was designated as a Biosphere Reserve in 1981 by UNESCO. Native oaks, yews,...More

Enjoyed my hike to the falls! The drive is a bit intimidating if you aren’t used to driving on the small roads in Ireland but if I can do it, you can! I sat by the falls for a while because it was so beautiful...More

There is a car park down the bottom of the waterfall but a steep slope up to see the waterfall... you probably could push a buggy but may find it a bit difficult. I would carry your baby if I am honest.

THe walk from the parking lot closest to the falls is only a 5 minute walk. If you decide to go up the steps after viewing the falls takes another 5 mins to the first level. You can't see the waterfall from there. But... More

It's kinda on the other side of Killarney. Like the cathedral is in town and then Torc Waterfall is out past Muckross House in the park. Not terribly far though.
