Located off the N25 at Leamybrien, the Falls are located 20 kilometres from Waterford City.
The cascade runs down the centre of a high and wide valley, populated with many types of vegetation, jutting rocks, and herds of domestic sheep and goats.
It is deceivingly tall, and the valley deceivingly wide.
Mahon Falls can only be approached by car and accessed on foot.
Falling down the 80-metre Mahon Falls and proceeding past the "Fairy Bush", the river then passes through the village of Mahon Bridge and on past Flahavans Mill and under the 8-arched rail bridge in Kilmacthomas.
Finally ending its journey at Bunmahon (literally "the bottom of the Mahon") on Ireland's south coast, the river drains into the region of the Atlantic Ocean known as the Celtic Sea.
