This is such a charming place and I can't believe that we did not know of its existence. Th walk up the narrow path up through the glen is superb (although you will definitely need walking boots and moderate fitness as it is steep enough). It is worth calling by though just to stroll over to the waterfall - this is a short level path and you will definitely want to take some photos. We visited in early March - magical greens - lots of mosses and ferns. Birds song added to the atmosphere. A perfect starter to a day in the Antrim glens.

i live only ten miles from it an never tire of walking there. It's lovely to hear the birds sing and sound of the waterfall. I have many photos taken there.

A stunning walk. I didn't expect much, but when you walk round the corner to the waterfall, it simply takes your breath away. Absolutely stunning. The village itself is quaint and original. A real hidden gem. Just be careful on the rocks at the waterfall and don't fall on your backside like I did. Enjoy!
