“Glencar Lake”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Beautiful Lake and scenery in That area not to be missed.It is so peaceful for walks and having a picnic. When we visited it was a beautiful sunny day which made a big difference i would imagine it would not be so nice in bad weather as it is in a valley.

“A Truly Stunning Place to Visit”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

This area of Sligo is truly breathtaking. Look down on the lake from the Glencar Viewpoint on the mountain road, then follow the road down to lake level. Park in the car park and take a walk to the waterfall and wonder at nature.

“very sweet place to visit, great views, easy walk”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Loved the views and the drive there. Easy to find. Sweet little stroll to quite impressive waterfall. Really quite a stunning locale. There was a jarvie horse and buggy for rides around the lake which we did not use because we came late in the day, but it looked fun. Really a nice 2 hour diversion with splendid views!
