This is just the most amazing drive ... if you miss this while in Killarney you will sadly regret it. Everything about the road is amazing the twists the turns the sheep the rocks and the views. They are to die for.

Wonderful place, highly recommend walking it as cars were having to stop to let other cars pass. Took us around 2 hours to walk up it and back again.

We have been everywhere and this stretch of road is incredible and pictures cannot capture the nuances of being there. Endless waterfalls, sheep, cliffs, heaths and heathers etc. Suggest making it a round trip to and from Killarney by way of the national park. As...More

The ‘Gap’ is an area rather than a specific place. Note if you are driving that the road is narrow and you’ll need to pull over if cars come the other way. We visited in winter so there weren’t activities happening, but it was still...More

10 minutes from Killarney single track road leads through the Gap of Dunloe across 5 or 6 stone bridges to Blackwood passing some of the most amazing scenery. Macgillcuddy’s Reeks are a series of lakes with sheep and goats grazing on the side of the...More

The day we went there were not many cars or people at all. Its only about a 30 minute drive through the Gap of Dunloe with photo stops but the scenery is so amazing you might want to turn around and do it all again....More

My wife and I went by horse cart through the Gap of Dunloe in 2012 and my grandmother and grandfather made the same trip in 1908.

Only 20 minutes from Killarney is the most dramatic mountain road that takes you over some stunning scenery. It’s a little twisty but well worth the journey until you’ve had enough and can turn round and do it all again on the way back! Cafes...More

Absolutely stunning views. A lovely walk - takes about 2.5 hours or you can get a jaunting cart there and boat back. A must see

I think that will be tough to do in one day...especially if you mean to relax and enjoy the hike. I did the hike and took a boat across the lakes to the castle where I met my ride. It's a long hike so wear comfortable... More
