The ride up to the Gap is exhilarating enough, but when you get to the top, you will be blown away! What a great ride! If you are afraid to drive on small, basically one lane roads right next to 100 foot drop offs perhaps this isn't for you. All the rest will love it.

They have some road works on the road those days so they close it 9AM-5PM. Yet, park the car and walk to the gap. This way you'd better experience and appreciate the beauty of this gem.

Part of my party took a jaunting car to the gap and I was to pick them up. When I saw them they said that since it was early in the season and we could actually drive it. So we did. What a fantastic decision! We could drive much further than the jaunting cars go. The road is not the... More

Lovely lunch of Bacon and Cabbage in front of roaring log fire on a cold day. It was perfect. Surprisingly empty when we visited.

Loved walking the Gap of Dunloe but (at least for March) the road was quite busy with car traffic which I didn't expect as most reviews said it wasn't allowed. One lane road.

My husband and I visited the Gap of Dunloe with our 3 year old toddler boy. We took a jaunting cart with horse and the ride was splendid. The journey is long and I was worried my little one would get bored but he had plenty of entertainment between the driver, the horse, the views and the sheep all throughout.... More

We hired a car beside the airport and drove all around the area, and this was a particular highlight. The weather was terrible throughout our 3 days but that made our trip here a little better as we were the only people driving through the gap...and we got a few great photo's battling the wind and the rain.

During a trip through the Ring of Kerry we visited the Gap of Dunloe. Yes, a long drive, but the sight-seeing is beyond breathtaking. Something you never see in the US. We enjoyed making a day of the Ring. Pack a lunch (or stop somewhere local along the way), dress comfortably, make sure you have plenty of disk space for... More
