Details:

Glencar Waterfall is 50ft high and is situated in Glencar Lough, 11km west of Manorhamilton and served as an inspiration to William Butler Yeats and features in his poem 'The Stolen Child' 

'Where the wandering water gushes
From the hills above Glen-Car,
In pools among the rushes
That scarce could bathe a star,'

 The waterfall is really impressive after rain and can be viewed from a lovely wooded walk.

There are more waterfalls visible from the road although none are quite as romantic as this one. Picnic facilities and information kiosk are onsite
