Mynach Falls (Welsh: Rhaeadr Mynach) is a waterfall near Aberystwyth in the county of Ceredigion, Wales.

It occurs where the River Mynach drops 90 metres (300 ft) in 5 steps[1] down a steep and narrow ravine before it meets the River Rheidol.

The area is famous for the Devil's Bridge (Welsh: Pontarfynach - Bridge Over the Mynach River), a series of three arch bridges that span the river, one above the other.[2] The area near the waterfall is the terminus of the Vale of Rheidol Railway.
