Derrycunnihy Falls is located on the infamous Ring of Kerry; found in Moll’s Gap you can reach Derrycunnihy by following the scenic main road (N21) towards Muckross for approx. 12km; after crossing a bridge you will reach Derrycunnihy Church on a sharp bend where there is parking available.
Another hidden gem to be found in Killarney, the falls are almost an imminent sight only 1km from your departure. You can hear as they echo a peaceful air in nature’s playground. Continuing the route another .5km will bring you to the cascade – you will want your camera to capture this moment!
If you wish to lengthen this walk ever so slightly, Lord Brandon’s Cottage is only 2.5km from the cascades. The cottage resides at the opposite side in the Gap of Dunloe.
