There are times in your life when you use your best judgement on whether to decide to go to the left or the right not knowing how going the other direction would have affected you or whether you made the right choice. Prior to our...More
We came through the national park and through Black Valley to the Gap. It is a treacherous drive for the width of the road. You can hardly pass a car let alone hikers ans bikers using the road as well. But the view is totally...More
The Gap is very picturesque and a lot of fun on the Pony and Trap Tour. We only had 2 in our cart so it was comfortable. I could see how having 4 in the cart would be a little tight but that is what...More
We saw the horses hauling lazy tourists throught the gap of Dunloe, the traps overfilled with people who have no thought for the state of the poor horse expected to climb mountains with unbearable weights to tow. I saw horses dripping all over in sweat...More
This is some of the most stunning and picturesque landscape to be seen. Truly beautiful and yet bleak at times. An artists or photographers wonderland. If you visit in different types of weather or times of year you will have new experiences each time.
I rode my motorbike through Black Valley from Kenmare and found the Gap almost by accident. What a gorgeous place and a beautiful ride. The road was full of walkers, horse and cart, a few cars and me. I've been to the Alps, Scotland, Wales...More

The boat trip is a round trip , you should be at Kate Kearneys cottage at 10.30 , from here you can take a pony and carriage or else walk the 7 miles to the boat ( if you take the pony and carriage the driver of this can book your boat trip ) the carriage to the boat is €100 and can seat up to 4 people , all that I’m sure of, the boat then goes through the 3 lakes of Killarney and lands at Ross castle where you can get a shuttle back to Kate Kearneys ( not 100% sure but approximately €25 per person for boat and bus ) you arrive back at approximately 4pm
You can do the trip in reverse if you want starting at Ross castle
