It’s quite a hike to the top, but totally worth it! Park by the little cafes and walk up for the best experience. There are horse carriages that will take you up but walking the road allows you to stop frequently and ingest the co...More
Paved and just sharing the road with local cars and horses, not a bad way to spend 3-4 hours. We didn’t bring an umbrella which was stupid, but many spots along the way to sit and enjoy a quick sandwich picnic. My husband and I...More
Don’t miss this, it’s loads of fun. They cram 4 in a jaunty along with driver to climb up the Dunlop Gap. You really should make reservations and be theee on time at Kate Kierney’s cottage at start of the gap. Somewhere up the ride...More
We arrived here late in the day, so decided to drive it. It was narrow and tricky, with oncoming traffic. There were many groups walking it. Such spectacular, spectacular scenery. It’s worth the visit. We’d been on the Ring of Kerry during the day and...More
I took a horse-drawn buggy ride from Kate Kearney's Cottage to the Gap. Cars are allowed to drive to the gap despite what some locals may tell you but I now understand why they suggest taking the buggy. It added to the experience and I...More
We took the carriage ride into the Gap. Our driver gave us lots of information about the area and its history. We did this late in the afternoon. Had we had more time, we would have taken the carriage further into the gap and then...More
Definitely walk this to get the most out of it! We had no idea how far it would be or what we were looking for, but we were so glad we did it as it was a beautiful walk. We drove to Kate Kearney's Cottage...More
Ignore the cars and carriages and hike the 2 hours from Lord Brandons lodge to Kate kearney`s cottage. It is impressive views and in the end reward yourself with wonderful cheese cake.
Do not forget to sing while hiking, it will do you good.

I couldn't say, since July is sure to have more crowds than May, but potentially sunnier weather earlier in the day. If you're going to book a jaunting car, the company would likely be happy to recommend the best time of day... More

I just did this the other day. I would suggest going in ‘reverse’ - the views are much better and there’s less traffic. Start at Ross castle - boats leave at 10.30, take the boat ride to lord Brandon’s cottage (1.5hrs)- very... More
I just did this the other day. I would suggest going in ‘reverse’ - the views are much better and there’s less traffic. Start at Ross castle - boats leave at 10.30, take the boat ride to lord Brandon’s cottage (1.5hrs)- very scenic and tranquil, walk the Gap Of Dunloe (10kms) - with our slow pace it took us 3 hours and arrive at Kate Kearny’s cottage and take the 4pm shuttle back into Killarney. You can book your spot on the boat by phoning the day before - it’s one of the licensed boats on the national park website.
