O'Sullivan's Cascade

A hidden gem in Killarney National Park, found deep in the heart of Tomies woods or accessed via boat, O’Sullivan’s cascade is a truly amazing waterfall that rivals Torc for beauty. There is a popular legend surround the cascade that it was once owned by Fionn MacCumhal and whiskey rather than water flowed from it. O’Sullivan of Tomies is said to have been the only person brave enough to stand up to Fionn MacCumhal and shared a drop of the delightful whiskey. The legend continues that when the English invaded Ireland many years, the whiskey changed into water and became known as O’Sullivan’s Cascade.


The cascade nowadays is a night detour from the regular route around Tomies and is best experienced on a nice warm summers day.
