Highlights
    What to Expect
    Depart central Killarney and travel in the comfort on an air-conditioned coach to Kate Kearney’s Cottage, where you’ll have the chance to experience the magic of a traditional Jaunting Cart Ride (€25.00 per person to be paid on the day, based on 4 people sharing) through six miles of scenic landscape. As a more active alternative, travelers can opt to hike the famed Gap of Dunloe.

    After an epic wander through the emerald isle, boats will be waiting along the Gearhameen River for a tour of the upper, middle and lower lakes. Make a stop at the Ross Castle, where you’ll have a chance to witness the life of early Irish royalty before making your way back to Killarney on a comfortable coach bus.

    This trip was amazing. We opted to hike it (about 7 miles) and we were happy we did. You also have the option to take a horse drawn jaunting car or bike it. The bus was on time and dropped us off at one location, we hiked through the gap, took an hour boat ride through the

    This is a great tour and a very professional and attentive tour company. If you want to see the Gap of Dunloe but don't want to hike, this is the way to go. Lara the tour company owner was very personable and professional. She gave us a ride to town when the tour finished

    This turned out to be a lovely day. Deros Tours transferred us to the beginning of the Gap of Dunloe which is a paved road in the park. Mostly walkers, with some horse carts. Lovely views; could walk at your own pace, but needed to meet at Brandon Cottages for the wooden boat

    Great trip through the gap with our interesting driver! We were prepared for rain, but it turned out to be glorious! We learned much about living in these mountains from our driver who raised his children there. Our grandkids loved it!
