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.

    Had a great time walking the 7 miles after being dropped off. Beautiful, captivating scenery. Boat ride back was well worth the Euros spent for the day. Boatman was hilarious and informative. Must do.

    At least 4 hours. I believe we were dropped off around 10 and boats left around 2:30.
