Gap of Dunloe

A breathtaking passage between the MacGillicuddy's Reeks and the Purple Mountain, the Gap of Dunloe was formed 2 million years ago by glacial movements. The area lends itself to exciting activities such as hiking and climbing, cycling, boat tours, horse riding and pony and trap rides. Guided tour options are available. This is truly a magical place, with the route beginning at Kate Kearney's cottage, the home of a reputed witch, and just walking distance from "The Wishing Bridge".
