Gap of Dunloe by car??

We shall be in Killarney at the end of June, and wondered if it is possible to drive the car through the Gap, after the jaunting cars have finished for the day, and if so, what time could we set out? Is it best, or possible, to drive from Kate Kearney's cottage through the gap? How far would we have to drive before we could turn the car around? Any advice welcome!

OilR, its the Rally of the Lakes and there can be a lot of anti-social behaviour in Killarney that weekend.

Ah yes, some people use sport as an excuse to act like idiots - motorsport is no exception. Some good driving in that video, though! (And some guys who maybe should rather have stayed at home :P )

Many thanks to all of you for your helpful advice and tips. I'd love to walk through the Gap, but my other half couldn't manage it. We may try the "day tour", and also have a go with the car in the evning.
