Glenevin Waterfall Inishowen

The spectacular Glenevin Waterfall is located 2km north west of Clonmany village on the Inishowen Peninsula. Access to the wonderfully scenic walk to the waterfall along the wooded Glenevin Valley is beside the renowned Glen House Tea Rooms.

The walk up the valley to the waterfall takes you on a meandering route which is well designed and sign posted. Picnic areas have been installed along the way. If you haven’t already sampled the delights of the Tea Rooms, then these picnic areas are idyllic spots for light refreshments.

The walk from the entrance to the waterfall itself is approximately 1km and is gently uphill all the way. Small wooden footbridges are dotted along the track as you criss-cross the babbling stream. Stepping stones are available for the more adventurous types. The sides of the valley get a little steeper at you approach the waterfall. The sounds of the cascading water greet you before you turn the final bend and prepare you for the beautiful sight that is about to unfold.

The waterfall is wedge shaped and tumbles fresh mountain water over black rock from a height of over 30 feet. The expanse at the top of the fall measures 15 metres which curls gracefully to 1.5 metres at the base. The basin below is called Pohl–an-eas, derives its meaning from the foam which lies on the surface of the pool. Pohl-an-eas translates into English as the ‘ferment pool’
