Where Sheer White Music Rises and Falls
Just 8km from The Killarney Park, you will find Torc Waterfall – a glorious testimony to the beauty of cascading water descending from a tall slope. Your Concierge will give you directions to this natural wonder, located along the extremely picturesque tree-lined N71 Kenmare Road.
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 to the magnificent Waterfall, the sound of the thundering water growing ever so louder as you approach the landmark. Torc Waterfall itself is 70 to 80 feet high and the Owengarriff River which feeds the Waterfall rises in “The Devil’s Punchbowl” on the nearby Mangerton mountain
Once you reach the viewing area, you’ll see a series of steps ascending into the scenic woods. Continue climbing and you’ll be rewarded with mesmerising and stunning views over Muckross and the Lakes of Killarney. Be prepared to spot some attractive Red Deer in the area and marvel at the sight of these wonderful creatures. If you’re feeling particularly energetic, you can continue hiking until you reach the summit of the stunning Torc Mountain, or follow the Old Kenmare Road, a long-distance walking route that forms part of the Kerry Way Tour.
Whatever your fitness levels and available schedule, we can advise you on the best route to take to discover the beauty of Torc.
