Sheer White Music Rises and Falls
Just 8km from the Killarney Park Hotel, you'll find Torc Waterfall – a glorious testimony to the beauty of cascading water. Your Concierge will give you directions to this natural wonder, located along the picturesque N71 Kenmare road.
Regularly listed among the Top 5 Things to See around Killarney, Torc Waterfall is a beloved stop for visitors touring the Ring of Kerry. Leave your car in the designated car park and stroll the 300 metres up the renowned "Cardiac Hill" to the Waterfall, the sound of the thundering water growing ever louder as you approach the landmark. The waterfall itself is about 20 metres high and is at its most impressive after heavy rain.
Once you reach the viewing area, you'll see a series of steps ascending into the woods. Continue climbing and you'll be rewarded with mesmirising and stunning views over Muckross and the Lakes of Killarney. If you're feeling particularly energetic, you can continue hiking until you reach the summit of Torc Mountain, or follow the Old Kenmare Road, a long-distance walking route that forms part of the Kerry Way. Whatever your fitness levels and available schedule, we can advise you on the best route to take.
