Great easy walk for all the family. Kids will love exploring the towers and the surroundings, not a challenging walk at all and suitable for everyone.

short walk, not very challenging. there was a well signposted route with a good path, little bit mucky in places but everything passable. there are numerous benches along the trail .the lodge and towers are spectacular. Great place to let kids explore. also a number of picnic tables at the car park.

Lovely walk, beautiful waterfall. Climbed up to the very top which added to the journey but was a perfect walk all the same. Very good for dogs

Nice trail especially with kids. Lots to see, the waterfall is a must see, the kids loved it (bring spare socks :) Not too taxing for even the youngest of hikers. Just to save people looking it up.... the start point is the Ballysaggartmore Towers carpark.

Beautiful and easy hike The structures were really nice. We started by heading to the left first up the steeper hill. Then followed the trail down to the next towers and bridge. Beautiful little waterfall and a picnic table. Can be done in about 30 minutes but we spent over an hour there. Perfect for families or to bring a dog

First to Review

Great trail, took about 45 min with stopping and wondering. We parked and started to right side which took us to the "gates" first. Didn't encounter many people which was nice to just listen to the birds and other nature sounds. In the back was a pretty cool waterfall.
