This is the view that Queen Victoria rightly admired. We enjoyed it on a clear day - beware low clouds in typical Irish weather.

This is really a roadside stop for bathroom breaks and gift shopping for tourists. After several visits over the years, the shop at Moll's Gap has some of the nicest goods and lowest prices in Ireland!

Moll's Gap is a scenic viewpoint off the Ring of Kerry. The mountains are imposing and there is a feeling of great isolation here. It is beautiful, despite seeming rather barren without trees. It is hard to describe but it's well worth the stop!

Can’t beat the views. Just pull over and gape at the beauty. Even the air smells wonderful! Only a few minutes north of Kenmare.

The drive from Torc waterfall to Moll's gap was breathtaking and well worth doing. At the gap we had scones and tea at avova - delicious. The staff in thre restaurant and shop were very helpful and friendly

This is the near perfect stop on a travelling holiday! My favourite store in Ireland, in a beauty spot with historical landmarks nearby! Can’t get much better! The view here is different form the traditional Killarney lakes view... more rugged and tussock covered with some...More

We were lucky enough to get a fantastic view and have great food in avoca cafe. I would miss this detour on the ring of Kerry if not a clear sky day

Not worth stopping off at,but a beautiful drive through.The cafe and shop is okay,but I couldn't even get a postcard of the view in there.Much nicer places on the ring of Kerry to stop off at.
