Easy to find, good parking & kid friendly. Plenty of off-trail options also. Great views of the lake.

Beautiful walk

lovely location and surroundings easily accessed.

An easy trail, good for trail runners. You can see most of the city on a sunny day. It's very easy to get to from the city. Timbertrove càfe is lovely for a nice coffee or lunch after your hike.

Trail is mostly on narrow roads.

Lovely walk, easy walking,lovely views.

One of the hidden gems! Bring a bite to eat and take in the views. it's like walking in Galicia.

Older route, not the signposted route between Ballyhooly and Killavullen on the Blackwater Way.

Lovely walk across the limestone shelf. Great views, and the little church and well (signposted about half way round) are just beautiful. Highly recommend visiting the Burren Perfumery nearby too. A great day!

Was a very pleasant walk. Nothing hard, just a stroll. Fantastic views of the coastline.

very steep at start up from car park but easy walk for next t
wo thirds and final third again steep but now down hill... not a place for buggies or people with poor mobility

One of the best hikes I’ve ever done!

Incredible views of Lough Derg from the top. Steep hike up Tountinna but with the option of steps now in the places where previously it would have been most difficult.

Loose stone trail up with nice views from the top. A good leg opener for any trail runners going on to tackle Tountinna from the Graves of the Leinstermen side. Always freezing here in winter!

Flat easy to navigate trail, part grass, part stone trail with panoramic views of the Weir at the start of the Ardnacrusha electricity generation system (8 km closer to Limerick along the canal). Very relaxing.

Nice well paved river path that brings you close to the city centre with lovely bird viewing. Continue along O'Callahan Strand for duck & swan viewing & feeding, great for the kids, and onto Clancy's strand for the Treaty stone, King John's Castle and other historical sights.

Really beautiful place to spend most of the day.

Nice walk through the forest.

Beautiful views and very close to wildlife. We didn’t see anyone else along our hike, despite a lot of tourists being in the area.

I walk it daily and love it from the top you can see , Wicklow mountains, commetaghs, blackstairs to name but a few. lots of Forrest trails here too to get up and down.

This hike was incredible.

The trails are confusing, so hopefully I can help a bit. The trail shown on the above map is if you walk from the town if Killarney. If you drive to the upper lot of the falls, you have a few options.
Torc Mountain Waterfall has 3 main routes.
Yellow (easy/shortest)
Blue (moderate)
Red (longest and most difficult)
I did the red, which also includes part of the yellow and blue.
Red is a 3 mile loop that took me about and hour and 20 minutes (with photo stops). It is a big downhill potion towards the lake, then you follow the lake for a bit, then you hit the locally named “Cardiac Steps”. It is about 1 mile of straight up, switchback, rock staircase. I am from Colorado, USA and these are steep. Many steps were at knee height.
After that you follow the ridge back to the car lot. Incredible views (I could not have asked for a clearer day) shady most of the way, and absolutely breathtaking.
One of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever done. Unfortunately you cannot summit from here, you have to do the Torc Mountain trail for that, but you get plenty high!

Wonderfull city, nice peoples, instructive

Fabulous site and view, easy walk, eye candy.
