Waterford's beautiful Mahon Falls in the Comeragh Mountains

 Waterford's beautiful Mahon Falls in the Comeragh Mountains

Mahon Falls are quite a sight and not too difficult to find in the Comeragh Mountains. About ninety minutes, maybe less, from the Dunkettle Roundabout. When you pass Dungarvan, head for Leamybrien and then insert Mahon Falls Car Park into your Google Maps. The spacious car park is about 20 to 25 minutes from the Falls and you can see them as you head out.  We were there on March 4th, arriving in the car park after a heart breakfast in The Tannery (Dungarvan). It was a beautiful sunny morning but the wind was bitterly cold and right in our faces, drawing water from our eyes as we walked in. Amazingly, it had dropped to more or less zero on our return and it was almost balmy! The path in is quite solid and we saw one mother pushing a laden buggy there.

The path is a hard surface and easy to walk on.

Getting easy now!

On the way in

Don't forget to look behind you. You can see down to the coast.

Below are a few short videos of the falls.
