the waterfall is worth a visit, but the many cars and the flip-flop tourists bother us, it's better (as we did it) to look at the spot from the wicklow way, it comes across better

I really like this valley, today we saw sheep, cows, wild goats and pheasants, which was a joy. I love the little cottage at the foot of the waterfall. This is a nice hidden secret.

Gorgeous valley scenery only minutes from Glendalough and totally worth a trip. Narrow road can be tough in bad weather.

Beautifully clean area with a spectacular waterfall. Well worth the visit. An easy walk from the car park to the waterfall. You can easily drive right up to it if you prefer not to walk.

I have been to this waterfall many times, and the valley in which it sits is very picturesque with the trees and wandering sheep. It is worth stopping and looking at it, especially if there has been heavy rain.
