  • 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.

  • So beautiful and the restaurant next to the waterfall is absolutely gorgeous

  • 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
