We went on a 3-hour walk through the Gap of Dunloe on a very rainy day. We parked at Kate Kearney's cottage and walked a couple hours and took an hour to get back. It was lovely and the views were fantastic, but I probably...More

The scenery in the gap of Dunloe is stunning. I would not recommend driving through the gap ... you'll spend more time paying attention to the narrow, winding road than to the scenery. It is better to walk or to taking a ride in a...More

The drive thru Gap of Dunloe was beautiful, yet very harrowing! The road is a single lane road that is winding, rocky, and narrow - did I say how narrow it was?!?! Definitely worth the trip.

The Gap was beautiful, we rented a car and drove through, just stop your car after a while and look back, it's a stunning view. We climbed a bit on the side of the hills for a better view
