Overview
The remote Gap of Dunloe features spectacular scenery but is hard to navigate, so this half-day tour makes it easy to access the photogenic mountain pass from Killarney’s medieval Ross Castle. The classic Irish adventure includes a narrated boat ride on the lakes of Killarney plus a pony-drawn carriage ride through the relatively untouched Black Valley, so you can travel the way that locals have for centuries.

Highlight of our trip to Kerry! Everyone we encountered (Donal and Dux) was cheerful and informative, and the whole experience was very well organised by Tangney Tours. Hand sanitiser was provided at each point of the journey. We only discovered this the day before and so glad
