Due to the prolonged dry spell the waterfall was probably running st 50%, but stop looked great. A real hidden gem only a few minutes of the main road.

A lovely stop on the way to or from Maghera with photographic appeal, especially after rain! The water fairly flies down! Great for children to climb on the rocks, and get their feet wet. Not the most spectacular waterfall in the world but certainly a...More

Literally right off the road. Little off the beaten path, but with the drive imo. If you're feeling adventurous keep driving the road goes up and over the mountain, the view is amazing. Beautiful, but a long slow drive down some bumpy roads, not much...More

Not exactly awe-inspiring, but fairly striking. Coming from Wales, I don't think it would be fair to be judgemental. It's on the road to Maghera so one more scene to absorb.

Very pretty waterfall and only a 10min detour en route to Arcata from Glengash Pass. Definitely worth a visit and on a nice day you could have a picnic around the base. I reckon people swim in the pool at the base too... nice spot...More

A surprisingly high waterfall cascades down to the road. It can be a little busy as other visitors pull of the road. There is an interesting selection of wild flowers and ferns. There are some photos around of it frozen solid!

We were putting up the night in Glenties and so thought we'd add this as a little side track pitstop. It's a nice little waterfall to take some photos and maybe have a sit at the side just to chill out to take a break...More

The Assaranca Waterfall was our first sight seeing spot in Ireland. We stayed at a cottage directly across the bay from the waterfall and couldn't wait to get up close! It was well worth the trip in the rain. You can get right up close...More

The falls are at the side of the road so no restrictions for dogs.

The roads are winding and overlook farmlands and a river that meets sea. ( the road is not high until one point that overlooks the water) It is not treacherous though :)

I wondered myself. Might ask in the village, maybe in the Heritage center’s little coffee shop or at Nancy’s.
