It’s one of the most iconic spots in county Kerry: the Gap of Dunloe. And yes, it is a public road, so you are allowed to drive it up and down. But, during the tourist season it will be packed with walkers, cyclist, horses and carriages making their way up the gap. So if you’re driving it, make sure it is a quiet day - aim for the rain! It will only make it better. And you get the best views if you’re driving it the other way around. How do you do that?

Starting in Killarney: Follow the Ring of Kerry (N71) to Moll’s Gap and take a right there (R568). Take the first road to the right and follow the signs of the Black Valley Hostel. It will take you straight up to the Gap of Dunloe for some breathtaking views!

Hey Anne-Lotte,

Thank you so much for sharing your story with us! These are some excellent practical tips, and such a dramatic picture to boot! That's maybe another reason why you should aim for rainy circumstances for a visit to the Gap. ;)

Did you drive the Ring of Kerry as well, or maybe even some parts of the Wild Atlantic Way? 

Groetjes,
Joris
