The Írárfoss (Irish River Falls) is a beautiful waterfall in southern Iceland. The river Írá has its source in the Eyjafjallajökull glacier, and flows into the Eyjafjalladjúp (Island Mountain Deep). About 10 kilometers to the west you can find  the more famous Seljalandsfoss.

The river Írár has 3 big waterfalls and a few small ones. The first one is the Írárfoss near the mainroad and direcly along road 246.
