The waterfall is picturesque and the walk was for someone of average fit level. There is a steeper climb and this is for someone of higher fit level, however; once you reach the top it is only a small stream.

The green trees and waterfall offer such breathtaking views. I would not miss this site and you can take a short amount of time to see the falls if you are trying to squeeze several things into your day.

A nice easy trek to see the real beauty of Killarney. Takes roughly about at hour to the top. Pretty easy to do too often see young kids on the path.

A truly lovely walk to the top of Torc Mountain. Fairly gradual ascent along wooden planks and rocky paths, with beautiful views of the Kerry mountains and lakes all around. The view from the top is spectacular you can see Killarney and the surrounding mountains...More

Stunning place. Wear comfortable shoes as the ground is uneven on the way up. Wondeful photo opportunities and so very relaxing. Cant wait to go again.

Torc mountain is ideal for all types of hikers. The trail is mostly boardwalk and easy to follow. The views are great. It takes about 2 and a half hours for reasonably fit people and is a great introduction to what hill walking caan offer.

We walked from Muckross House up to the top of Torc Waterfall and back to Muckross and enjoyed a nice coffee and cake in the cafe. It takes about an hour and a half and we were lucky with a lovely sunny day in January....More

Depends on personal hiking condition. We made it in 70 minutes to the top. But we were of good speed. I would say up to 100 minutes is ok.
