The Gap of Dunloe Full-Day Tour from Killarney

Highlights
    What to Expect
    Depart central Killarney and travel in the comfort on an air-conditioned coach to Kate Kearney’s Cottage, where you’ll have the chance to experience the magic of a traditional Jaunting Cart Ride (€25.00 per person to be paid on the day, based on 4 people sharing) through six miles of scenic landscape. As a more active alternative, travelers can opt to hike the famed Gap of Dunloe.

    After an epic wander through the emerald isle, boats will be waiting along the Gearhameen River for a tour of the upper, middle and lower lakes. Make a stop at the Ross Castle, where you’ll have a chance to witness the life of early Irish royalty before making your way back to Killarney on a comfortable coach bus.

    Great trip through the gap with our interesting driver! We were prepared for rain, but it turned out to be glorious! We learned much about living in these mountains from our driver who raised his children there. Our grandkids loved it!
