This is an incredibly beautiful waterfall, and it takes no work to reach it. It is literally right on the side of the road and you can pull right up to see it. Lovely.

Waterfall on road to maghera beach and caves. It is pretty but coming from an area of northern Ireland with one of the best waterfalls I found it disappointing. Worth seeing if on the road.

Heading from Ardara to killybegs in Co. Donegal, about a mile outside of town, there is a right hand turn which will eventually take you to Maghera beach, the waterfall is on this road, you can't miss it.
