Glenevin Waterfall, Donegal Reviews

  • What a great place to go and visit. Such a surprise too. Lovely walk way which has so obviously been loved and cared for by the community. Brilliant views too if you go up the side track up the hill. A great place to bring the kids. Little fairy's hanging from trees and picnic tables to stop and eat at.

  • Glenevin Waterfall is a beautiful place. Very serene. The views are beyond words. Many places to stop and sit for those who need a rest on the way. No climbing at all. Very low impact hike.

  • What a beautiful place, we were spoilt today because weather was so good but so well kept. Beautiful. Toilets at entrance which was handy with the kids, you can walk at whatever speed you want even though was really busy. Looking forward to seeing it again soon

  • Not easy to find. Entrance at side of Glen House. Nice walk along the river... wear proper shoes as its a little rough... not the biggest waterfall but a nice stroll. Lovely coffee n cake at the Glen House to finish.

  • One of Donegal's many hidden gems. A gentle hike for roughly a kilometre through well maintained park land brings you to this breathtaking natural waterfall. Simply stunning.
