Check this out on your way around The Ring of Kerry. It can be a quick stop on the side of the road, or a lengthier visit to take it all in. It is simply beautiful and offers scenery as far as the eye can see on a clear day. Lots of sheep around, so be careful on these little... More

When in Kerry, one has to take in the trip to the Gap of Dunloe. Spectacular views. It was a bonus to have had the weather good and to catch the sight in all it's splendour

No visit to The Killarney National Park is complete without taking a Jaunting Car ride through the Gap of Dunloe, it should be on everyones 'to do list'.

We walked here some 45 minutes from the parking place in front of Kate Kearneys Cottage and it was a lovely walk. Highly recommend!

I live not too far from "The Gap" as the locals call it. I've visited on numerous occasions right thorough from childhood to me now 24 years. It's an amazing place with spectacular views. Lovely for a walk but not for the feint-hearted as it's pretty much all uphill! There ur the option of taking a pony and trap though... More

The Gap of Dunloe remains by Tradition a route to be taken on foot on horse back or by Jaunting cart. From the very first time my parents went on horse back through the Gap in 1957 to my own last time. Remains an Irish adventure, with such stunning view of rugged unspoiled Nature, created by the Glaciers of long... More

We took a horse and buggy ride through the Gap of Dunloe recently and it was one of the highlights of our trip! Nancy, the horse, was a stunningly beautiful creature. The driver was friendly, funny, and one of the jolliest Irishmen that we met! The views will surely take your breath away and it is a small price to... More

1st part with jaunting car in the mountains, then 2nd part with the boat ride, breathtaking views and wonderful landscapes. To make it perfect it should be banned for cars and motorbikes...

The landscape was beautiful, but we drove ourselves up almost to the gap- bad move! The road is VERY narrow! We shoukd have taken the pony and trap!

Riding in a horse-drawn jaunting cart through the Gap of Dunloe was absolutely the best part of our vacation - our driver/guide was so funny and taught us a lot of things along the way. Would highly recommend!
