We finally visited Kilfane Waterfall & Glen and can't believe why we left it so long. It is beautiful and very special. Lovely spots to stop and take in the beauty. Great welcome at the entrance. Really worth not just one but many visits.

I simply adore kilfane waterfall & garden. I've visited it 4 times this summer. Each time it's just as amazing as the first very visit.

We had been here once and LOVED it but it was closed as of August 31 - I was so disappointed. Surely you can stay open longer!
