Glenevin Waterfall, County Donegal
The walk up Glenevin Valley in County Donegal is treat enough, but wait until you see the waterfall! The route is easy and well signposted, leaving you free to enjoy the soft landscape. You criss-cross the stream, either by footbridge or, more excitingly, by stepping stones as you work your way up to this mossy marvel. The fall itself tumbles over black rocks, dropping nine metres (30 feet) into the foaming pool below. The foam inspired the pool’s name, pol-an-eas, which means ferment pool. At night, stick around to see if the dancing colours of the Northern Lights make an appearance over nearby Urris.
