“Pony Trap Ride Through the Gap”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Interesting scenery and geology. The pony trap ride was quite an experience! Dress in layers for this trip. It can be cold and windy on one side and bright and sunny on the other

“Great Spot!”
Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

The Gap of Dunloe is a great spot to pass through. We took a drive through it and there were some great sights and it was a very interesting drive. I would highly recommend the area for a drive.

“A highlight of our trip”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We Loved the Gap of Dunloe, a true Beauty it is!!! Unfortunately the rain was coming down so hard and sideways we got absolutely drenched....but even so we made the best of it and hiked to the Gap. We didn't go all the way to the other side due to the weather, just to the Gap and back, but warmed up with a nice cup of soup at Kate's Cottage afterwards. We came unprepared and the bartender gave us big garbage bags to make Newphie Poncho's (as my husband likes to call them...he's allowed....he's Newphie)
They don't sell umbrella's or ponchos at the shops, they have expensive (and very waterproof i'm sure) jackets and such but I'd suggest coming prepared, or with a change of clothes at least. Also watch out for cars....and horse poop.

“awesome”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

This is a nice walk and few miles from the center. We enjoyed our hike but it is also a possibility to take horses for the travel. Took some nice photos on the way.
