Lovely drive to this beautiful waterfall and lake. Good parking and the walk to the waterfall was on a proper path with hand rails. There is a cafe on site ,but didn't visit it. Well worth the trip.

Only two kilometres away from the more famous and ultimately more touristy glencar waterfall and yet is my favourite of the two purely for that reason. (Of the few people I met, they all said the same thing) that it was nicer here simply because it was less busy.

Moderately steep climb which will take you roughly 40 mins up and 15 mins down. (Definitely worth it as you get some lovely views, but I still think it would be nice if the public were allowed even closer access.)

Expect to spend two hours tops here so don't plan your whole day around it without another attraction in mind.

TIP: You need to go here after fairly heavy rainfall to best appreciate it.

We were driving to Glencar Waterfall when we stumbled across this beauty..Its 2km before Glencar Waterfall. It's a 30 minute walk up to the waterfall and 15mins down...It's so worth the walk up to it. Then when you get to the top you have an amazing view of Glencar Lough..Just beautiful...Pure natural nature

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.
