Challenging walk not for the faint hearted. Not really worth doing unless it has rained and there’s a decent water flow to the waterfall. Limited parking

Such a lovely waterfall and the walk to it is lovely a little bit tough but doable. It took about 40mins but so worth it when you get to the top. The views are just amazing, if u are taking a trip to sligo this is definitely a must do.

We came across this sight by accident on route to Glencar waterfall. It was flowing and while we didn't reach the top it is a lovely walk and worth finding.

Very natural area with a defined trail leading to the water fall. Off the beaten path, parking is limited, with back up lot not very close. The trail leading to Devil's Chimney takes about a half hour to hike and is well and moderately demanding.

While you have to be lucky, and will only see waterfalls here after significant rain, this is location is still very well worth to visit. There is no charge here, and the hike to the falls area is absolutely gorgeous; there's quite a bit of elevation change during the hike, but it is a well marked and well maintained path. Although there was no water flowing during our visit, it was an absolutely beautiful hike, and very well worth our time. Considering nearby falls attractions can get pretty crowded, this area isn't nearly as possible, and you won't encounter crowds at all. Parking at the bottom of the trail can be challenging; but, if finding a space, don't hesitate to hike the trail, and hope to see some waterfalls!

Head towards Glencar and the turning is a bit before you get to Glencar waterfall. It’s about a 25 - 40 minute walk, a bit steep in places but suitable for everyone. The view from the top is well worth the walk. They say that it’s better to go when it has rained (not uncommon in Sligo anyway) we had the perfect combination of showers and sunshine that day and when we got to the top the waterfall was pouring and bathed in sunlight. Absolutely breathtaking! Could not recommend more.

We were driving past so stopped for a look, but it hadn't been raining enough so there was nothing to see.
Parking is limited, but the views and location are lovely so worth a stop in any weather.

In Glencar, Co Leitrim. As usual, mistakenly attributed to Sligo. The beauty of Glencar Waterfall, about one third of Glencar Lake and this facinating waterfall are ALL IN LEITRIM.

Hi Patricia, Just to let you know this walk is most definitely in Co. Sligo. The river and the waterfall form the boundary between Counties Sligo and Leitrim with the walk constructed on the Sligo side. Many thanks for your positive review and I hope you enjoyed the walk and continue to enjoy all that both counties have to offer.... Ray

Really worth doing if your in Sligo. Doesn’t take long. If your heading for Glencar waterfall this is on the way. Keep an eye out for it because it’s not very well sign posted. As your driving, if the lake is on your right then the waterfall is in your left. Park at side of road. Take about 25/30 mins to get to viewing point. Slightly steep in places and a few steps. Defo not suitable for buggies. But young kids walking will be fine. We done it in July so not really a whole lot of water was falling. Just a trickle really. But the splashes at the top worked fine so we saw the devils chimney effect. Few donkeys in field beside road. Kids enjoyed feeding them. Lovely views of the lake when you reach the top.

Apparently there's only a heavy flow after its rained. Today, there was barely a trickle. If you're coming just to see the waterfall, you'll be able to see from the road if there's a decent torrent of water or not. It's a 30min walk from the car to the view point, through the forest, mostly uphill.
