From the carpark it is a few minutes walk to the falls. Make sure you have good foot wear and are prepared for an uphill walk. Once there it is a beautiful waterfall in amongst beautiful Irish greenery.

The whole National Park is a gem, however, Torc Waterfall was an amazing highlight to take in and view. Short walk from the jaunty cart parking, make sure to wear proper footwear.

Visited the falls with friends and family. Pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to access the grounds. Lovely scenery and nice walk to the falls. Don't miss this experience. Highly recommend!

A short hike from upper parking lot to see the torq water fall. Be careful. Slippery path but well worth the hike

We parked at the car park above Torc waterfall and walked down, but if you can’t deal with lots of stairs find the bottom car park and then it’s only a short stroll through stunning mossy woods to the base of the waterfall. Note there...More

Easy walk to the top of the waterfall, very popular but plenty of parking - well worth seeing. Visitors centre is closed out of season

Have been to Killarney so many times but never to Torc Waterfall and really enjoyed the walk the kids loved it too. We will never visit Kilarney again without visiting the falls again.

We parked at Muckross House and walked to the waterfall. It was very pleasant and not too far. Entry is free and there are toilet facilities at Muckross House and a coffee shop.

You need to be fit to reach the top of Torc but well worth the views when you get there. We and our dogs enjoyed the ramble to the top.

THe walk from the parking lot closest to the falls is only a 5 minute walk. If you decide to go up the steps after viewing the falls takes another 5 mins to the first level. You can't see the waterfall from there. But... More

It's kinda on the other side of Killarney. Like the cathedral is in town and then Torc Waterfall is out past Muckross House in the park. Not terribly far though.
