First of all I'm glad we had a small vehicle. The roads in that area are quite narrow and there are a fair number of blind turns. Since this was off season and in the late afternoon, it was pretty isolated and we saw a...More
There is a small parking area (3 cars) into the gap a few minutes drive from Kate's cottage. We parked here and decided to walk the road up into the gap. We clocked 6.6 miles, 750 foot elevation gain, and a total time of 1...More
The place is a bit far and the road is not that wide and u can’t go near the gap because theres a fence so u can see it from the distance but can still see the beauty of the nature while standing a bit...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
