Drive down here often to just sit and unwind. Last time I was there I seen lots of young teenagers diving in and out of the pool in their wet suits. They were having a lot of fun. Lovely spot for a picnic.

Waterfall is just outside Ardara on the way to Maghera beach. Definitely worth stopping for a photo. The power of the water cascading down is amazing. The noise almost deafening. Beautiful spot.

On the bike ride to see the caves we rode by this waterfall. It was beautiful and a real photo opportunity! The outdoor experiences in this beautiful part of Ireland have me wondering just how difficult it is to imigrate to Ireland...

The waterfall is stunning, just by the side of the road on the way to Maghera Caves and beach. Great place for a photo.

These falls appear suddenly on the narrow road to Maghera Beach just outside Ardara. There's a small car parking area basically at the foot of the falls so no excuse not to stop. It provides a nice photo op.

On a recent outing with the club we stopped at the Assaranca Waterfall, it is beautiful and involves no walking at all as there is a car park right at the bottom of the waterfall, if you are in this area it is well worth a visit, stunning scenery!!
