Kilfane Glen and Waterfalls (Kilkenny)

Waterfalls have been something that I’ve long been intrigued by for quite some time, there’s always been a bit of a soft spot for me when it comes to them. Like many other things in ireland only since entering my twenties have I actually begun to start exploring the great things that are in my own country. Knowing that if I was to visit the country as a tourist they’d be the first few things I’d check out.

So this weekends adventure was going out to Kilfane Glen and Waterfall in Kilkenny. It was an hour and a half drive from Rathgar, Dublin. Only upon arriving did we find out that this is actually only open to the public for two months of the summer…… but after an hour and a half drive we weren’t turning back without getting to that waterfall. A few fences, skinned knees and a little hike we make it to a completely empty Kilfane Glen. It was stunning and nearly ethereal and a little amazing to have the entire place to ourselves. This isn’t the first irish waterfall i’ve visited but it is the first one i’ve documented so for the blogs sake this will be my first endeavour. #1.

Arriving at this place is an incredibly relaxing experience, getting to see the little streams and rivers that run off the waterfall and go all around the glen.

Strolling on and around the little bridges set up that run over the streams is pretty serene. If your in the mood to get out into nature and relax, possibly even bring a picnic and just chill out for an afternoon, this is a nice and unusual spot.

Walking around with so much green everywhere is unusual at first, as nearly everything is covered in moss. The bridge, the bark of trees, rocks, logs, literally everything you look at is covered.
