We read the information board and saw quite clearly that 'if you can't see the waterfall from where you are standing it isn't flowing'. A bit disappointed we decided to make the climb up anyway. It was a wonderful walk on a good path through...More

The area is great and beautiful, scenic and really picturesque. The walk to the waterfall is a around a 30 minute climb on a nicely maintained walkpath, easily doable even with 4 year olds. As for the waterfall itself.. well.. it has to be great.....More

Was here with 2 kids(5yr and 2yr)...was quite a trek up and had to carry the 2 yr old but a good path once you take your time. The view at the top was worth it tho!

Best going on a sunny and windy day if you want to see the water going back up the waterfall. Very impressing

Glad you had a great time on the walk. We at Sligo Walks are constantly trying to improve our product. Look out for the proposed path extension at The Devil's chimney which we hope to complete before spring. For updates check out sligowalks.ie

Dramatic waterfall, especially in winter, with lots of rainfall, flowing off Ben Bulben mountain range,to create the volume of rushing water.Wear Wellington boots or your feet will be cold and shoes soaked in the water spray!!

This is a great little hike for your kids. Did it with my 3 and 6 yr old and they loved it. Follow the red arrows on the sign posts. The path loops around at the top with steps. Best seen after heavy rain fall...More
