This Waterfall had really easy access from the road. There was parking across the road from the Waterfall entrance and it was only a very short walk of 0.4 miles to the Waterfall itself. Ice-cream vendor at the car park. Toilets available. A great spot very well kept.
Spectacular site and whole area surrounded by beautiful landscapes.Visited this site regularly over several years and it never ceases to amaze.Families and groups from all over the world are visiting here to see the wonders of the landscape.The Tea Shed is also very popular for coffee,teas and snacks throughout the day and encompasses a lovely play and rest area for families and children after their short climb to the waterfall .Good services,well maintained. No charge to view waterfall .
We chose this as a last minute addition to our Ireland itinerary, and I’m so glad we did!! It was so magical — absolutely gorgeous — and I loved the history. The Stolen Child was one of my favorite poems as a teenager. The walk up wasn’t bad at all, and the scenery on the way was lovely. There is a nice restroom at the parking area. Highly recommend.
It's been a while since I was here. My daughter was a baby and now she is 12. And it's more develop. The footpath are nice and beside the gate there is cafe and playground. My daughter tried the swing and she enjoyed it. Overall it's a beautiful place to visit and have a picnic with your family or friends.
Car park is so close to the waterfall (right across the road), place to stop and have lunch there too and a small children's play area. Beautiful scenery all around the location.
