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 so the day we did it was ideal. I noticed there hiking sticks left at the bottom gate, don’t know who would have left them there but they would be a welcome aid on this little hike. Safe for kids but not suitable for wheels buggies / chairs.

We visited on a day when the wind was from the right direction to periodically prevent the water from going over the falls. Instead it went backwards as a thick spray. It was neat to watch.

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.
