Gap of Dunloe Tour by Foot & Boat

1. Gap of Dunloe Tour by Foot & Boat

The Gap of Dunloe is a narrow mountain pass situated between Macgillycuddy’s Reeks and Purple Mountain in County Kerry. It spans 11 kilometers from north to south and consists of 5 lakes. Take a guided tour through the narrow and winding path, and discover a terrain formed by glaciers. Marvel at the towering summits of the Reeks, the changing shadows on the Purple Mountains, and the silence and solitude of the rugged glen. After being transported by coach, arrive at the famous cottage marking the entrance to the Gap. The cottage is named after Kate Kearney who is reported to have died of childbirth here at the ripe old age of 102! An unlikely story! Embark on a 7-mile journey to Lord Brandon’s cottage by either trap, pony, or foot. There will be an opportunity to purchase lunch at Brandon Cottage. Afterwards board a boat to Ross Castle, traveling through the 3 of the 5 lakes of Killarney. Be enchanted by the stories and folklore of the boatmen. As the tour draws to a close you will be transported back to Killarney by motor coach.

What people are saying about Killarney

Best activity on our Ireland trip

The gap of Dunloe is stunning. If you can walk it, you should. The views are unbeatable. Once you hike through the gap you are met by the boat driver. He was friendly and knowledgable. The fifth generation in his family to operate the boats. He knew everything from culture to nature. We had a fabulous time.

We had a great time. All steps of the transportation were well explained, the boat captain was entertaining and informative, and the weather tried its best to cooperate. If you're in the Killarney area...take this tour. If you are not in Killarney...go to Killarney...and check out this tour.

Absolutely fabulous trip yesterday. What made it was undoubtedly the guide Ducs. So informative AND hilarious. He organized our onward trip over the gap by horse and cart too We would highly recommend this tour
