While the walk was a bit strenuous it was delightful, with the lake behind us as we walked, after the walk we had a coffee at the site.

Glencar Waterfall is well worth a visit. It is free and I presume the venue is popular for photographs of' Brides and Grooms', as, We saw two different couples, having photos taken here. I think 20 minutes here will suffice.

We hiked Glencar waterfalls first. Very lovely walk along a boardwalk that took about 10 minutes up and back. Down the road 2km we saw another waterfalls hike. This was a bit more of a hike. About 25 minutes uphill to an overview where you can see Devils Chimney and another small falls. The walk down took 15 minutes. This was a lovely walk up through a wooded area. We even meet several cute donkeys in a field along the way. Well worth our time.

We visited this after a lot of rain and the waterfall is pretty impressive. There's a nice walk up a hill through a forest to a couple of viewing points. Worth a stop if you are passing by.

Our trip here was by a happy chance. It was lousy rainy weather, but that just meant we had the place to ourselves! After an uphill hike through a lovely woods, the views were amazing. You can see for miles. The waterfall side is beautiful, with sheep all over the cliff, and a waterfall that steams up to the sky. Turn around, and you can see glencar lake and the valley stretching away between the hills.
You do need to be somewhat fit to do this, as it is about 1.2 kms uphill at a somewhat steep grade. The path is good, and there are stairs as well.
