The Gap of Dunloe is one of the most stunningly beautiful parts of County Kerry and indeed Ireland. Stretching through the MacGuillicuddy Reeks mountain range, this beautiful glacial valley simply must be experienced to be appreciated. Guests of The Dunloe Hotel & Gardens may begin at the front door of the hotel for this memorable trip. The tour begins with a short coach journey to Kate Kearney's Cottage where you can take a jaunting car or go on horseback through the six mile pass. A packed lunch or BBQ can be arranged at Lord Brandon's cottage upon request. Once through the gap, boats are waiting for the homeward journey via the enchanting Upper, Middle & Lower Lakes to historic Ross Castle where coaches await for the journey back.
