Glencar Waterfall

Glencar Waterfall well worth the staycation

Glencar Waterfall

Just 10 mins north if Sligo at lies tbe beautiful Glencar Waterfall. Although so so close to Sligo it it’s actually in county Leitrim

The waterfall itself is a large 50 ft, and has a loop walk where you get right up close to the waterfall and come back done the other side.

Our Trip To Glencar

On the way in to the Glencar Waterfalls and about only 100 metres or so from the falls car park is a separate stop with these great views over the Glencar Lough.

The entrance to Glencar. (please note Glencar is totally free excursion making it an even better place to visit)

After entering the walking track up to the falls you come across this beautiful stream which is where the waterfall runs to.

Past the stream and you then get your first glimpse of the beautiful Glencar Waterfall. We where surprised by the amount of water as it had a bit dry a few days prior.
