Waterfall (Irish: Tobar an Iarla)[1] is a village near Cork City, Ireland. It is built on the L2230 road, connecting Crossbarry to the city. There is a pub on the Crossbarry side of the village. The West Cork Railway once went past Waterfall.[2] A railway bridge is still in place on the road leading to Ballinora. The local Gaelic Athletic Association team is Ballinora GAA Club. In 2008 on the city side of Waterfall a gas pipeline, going from Lehanaghmore to Curraheen village, was built for Bord Gáis by Hegarty Construction. Construction commenced on the new Marymount hospice in the summer of 2009.

There is another village called Waterfall on the Beara Peninsula in western County Cork.
