Gap of Dunloe Tours from Killarney

Gap of Dunloe Tours from Killarney

Snaking through a glacier-carved valley in Ireland’s County Kerry, the narrow Gap of Dunloe is surrounded by pretty lakes and high mountain peaks. For hikers, cyclists, horse riders, and photo-seeking tourists, the mountain pass’s dramatic scenery makes it a must-visit. Here’s what you need to know about touring from Killarney.

Highlights

  • Travel along the mountain pass on foot or by traditional jaunting car (pony and cart).

  • Marvel at the majestic peaks of MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, Purple Mountain, and Bull Mountain.

  • Pass by five scenic lakes along the winding pathway. 

  • Pause at Wishing Bridge, a gray-stone arch bridge located around the halfway point of the pass.

  • Some tours from Killarney include a boat ride to or from the Gap of Dunloe via Gearhameen River.

  • Combine a trip to the Gap of Dunloe with a visit to nearby Killarney National Park to view sights such as Ross Castle, Muckross House, and the Lakes of Killarney. 

Things to Know

  • The Gap of Dunloe is about 10 miles (16 kilometers) from Killarney town center. The drive takes about 30 minutes. 

  • Gap of Dunloe tours from Killarney typically last between five and six hours. 

  • The gap itself stretches for just under seven miles (11 kilometers), running between Kate Kearney’s Cottage at the north end to Lord Brandon’s Cottage at the south end. A one-way hike should take about 90 minutes.

  • The narrow road through the gap is paved, though it can be uneven in parts. Those who aren’t able to hike can opt to go by jaunting car instead. 

  • Wear sensible shoes and layers, and bring a camera and water.
