Wonderful way to spend a day!

The “half-day” does not do this tour justice. The tour bus to the starting point and the trip through the gap take enough to qualify as a half-day, especially if you hike the 7 mile gap (2.5-3 hours depending on how hard you push). Then you start an amazing boat trip through the river areas to the lower lake, landing at Castle Ross. Definitely worth the time! We left our hotel at 9:45 and got back at 4:00.

MUST DO in Killarney! Had so much fun riding horseback through the Gap of Dunloe. Gorgeous scenery with sheep everywhere. Our guide Sean was helpful, funny and interesting. The boat ride back to Ross Castle was unfortunately rainy and chilly, but beautiful. HIGHLY recommend!

This was one of our favorite tours. We were lucky to have beautiful, clear weather. This tour shows off the beauty of Ireland. Be sure to ride in one of the jaunty cars and be told a lot of history for this area. This tour I would take again.

They put us on the wrong bus and didn't know it until they announced the destination just as the bus was pulling away. So instead of this tour, costing 25 each, we were on the Rings of Kerry tour, costing 20 each. Our tour was fine but not what we paid for.

We really enjoyed the trip. Our guides were very knowledgeable and we have learned a lot. Charlie the dog was a surprise host on the boat ride. Everybody love Charlie at the end of the boat ride!

This was a great activity. The views were gorgeous. I actually liked the boat ride the best. The driver that " coordinates " the tour simply drives you to the entrance of the gap in an old smelly van ( short trip so it's ok). Then explains the tour somewhat vaguely, and picks u up at the end.

Enjoyed the tour very much. Take the horse cart in the middle of the tour rather than walk, It's along walk up hill and was not included in our tour price. Shared the cart with one other couple so it was an extra 40 Euro.
