Torc Waterfall is located in Killarney National Park just a few miles outside of Killarney.
Steps near the base of the waterfall lead to a viewing point over the Middle Lake. On the day of our visit, recent rainfall made for a few slippery surfaces, so we decided to forego the risk and just enjoy the waterfall. Had we continued on, however, the path is also part of the Kerry Way long distance walking route and a starting point for circular walking routes, which are indicated by a map beside the car park.
Torc Waterfall is approximately 20 meters high. Appreciating the size and power of the waterfall while standing on the viewing platform, which is not all that close to the waterfall, was not as easy as other waterfalls I’ve visited, but the sights, sounds, and fresh fragrances of earth, foliage, and moving water made for a full sensory experience.
