About Kilfane Glen & Waterfall

Kilfane Glen & Waterfall is located at Kilfane Demense in Kilfane, Co. Kilkenny.

Located within the demense of Kilfane House, this is a Romantic period garden dating from the 1790s. It was commissioned by Sir John Power and his wife owners of Kilfane House during this period. The Romantic movement began in the later years of the 18th century where garden design became much more rugged and wild with expressionistic landscapes in contrast to the formal garden designs of the early part of the century.

Water is one of the many features of Romantic gardens and Kilfane is no exception with it's 30 foot waterfall, rushing stream, woodland paths and tiny bridges. Other features includes a grotto, caves and a cottage orné known as Potter's cottage.
