This series of spectacular cascades is accessed via a woodland path and there is a real sense of magic and discovery in exploring the Falls and they tumble down the hillside for over a kilometre.
Reputedly named after a one-time local landowner in the Rossinver area, Fowley’s Falls must be one of the best kept secrets of North Leitrim. Unlike the more popular Glencar waterfall, also in North Leitrim, Fowley Falls is not a single-drop waterfall.
Instead it cascades in a series of drops over the exposed bedrock to form a spectacular torrent of water rushing through the steep valley towards Lough Melvin.
The in-car satnav coordinates for the small car parking area at the start of the Fowley Falls walk are (a) N54° 22’ 49” W8° 8’ 00” or (b) N54.380278 W8.133333
