Although not a short drive from the main road( maybe 15/20 mns), it is worth the drive. Good parking next to the Lough and a lovely cafe, very clean and with real tasty food. Staff very courteous and cakes to good to resist. Plus even...More
Beautiful Waterfall and lake mentioned in WB Yeats poetry, only 5 minute walk from the car park, a bit of a recline on the walk, but very managable for all levels. This is a must if your in Sligo, its not far from Sligo town,...More
Glencar lake is such a beautiful setting. The mountains overlooking it can be visited by a steep road,by car and on foot. There are 2 waterfalls I visited, the 1 name Glencar waterfall is quickly accessed. The other is a good walk up a track...More
This waterfall is worth seeing. The parking is free and the waterfall is a surprise -- very attractive, with a wonderful waterfall sound. It's not a huge waterfall, but it is a very nice one and a short walk. The sheep and view near the...More
We had heard that the waterfall was at its most spectacular after heavy rainfall. The weather was changeable on the day we visited, after heavy rains and still windy. The walk to the waterfall itself was much shorter than we had envisaged and as a...More
The scenery on the approach road to this amenity is out of this world.

What a shame if we had missed it altogether.
It's a must-see if you are in...More

Whilst travelling from Sligo to Enniskillen noticed the sign for the Glencar Waterfall. The scenery is indeed spectacular as you drive along the Sligo Enniskillen road. Decided to stop and go in to see the waterfall and surrounding area. It is a small waterfall with...More
No, not when we were there, and from the look of it, not at other times either. There is a small building by the car park, that has toilets and seems to have a small office. But I don't see how they would enforce paying... More
No, not when we were there, and from the look of it, not at other times either. There is a small building by the car park, that has toilets and seems to have a small office. But I don't see how they would enforce paying first, as access to the waterfall footpath is on the other side of the road, and no gates or such.
The parking lot is within a 5-10 minute stroll away from the waterfall with lovely sights on the way. If you also want to kick back and relax there is a tea shack en route as well. I myself made the visit with a 4 month old... More
The parking lot is within a 5-10 minute stroll away from the waterfall with lovely sights on the way. If you also want to kick back and relax there is a tea shack en route as well. I myself made the visit with a 4 month old baby and found the terrain very reasonable so don't worry.
