We took the Gap of Dunloe tour on Saturday October 7th, 2017. We were pleased to receive a private car ride to Kate Kearney's Cottage where we met our cart driver Paul and his wonderful horse Gypsy. Our 7 mile ride through the gap couldn't have been more pleasurable. Paul was a gracious host. Unbelievable views/photo ops and historical info. We chose to walk up a winding hill, but got back in the cart for the balance of the ride. Paul delivered us to Captain O'Donaghue who piloted us through the 4 Killarney Lakes with a boat load of information, funny stories and graciousness. We had sun, some rain and mild wind but basically smooth sailing. We highly recommend this tour. Don't miss it!

Great trip! It was a 7 mile hike over 3 hours. My wife and I walked it in about 2 hours 20 minutes even with stopping for pictures. There's also an option to take horse and buggies for 25 euro each. The hike is followed by a nice ride through waterways to a castle that you can quickly view.

Fabulous views, both mountains and lakes. The cart ride with a local driver was fun and gave us additional history about the area, and the boat ride with another local tour guide was breathtakingly beautiful. Great way to enjoy the natural beauty that Ireland is so famous for.

Great tour - would recommend. Check price of jaunting car as it has recently gone up and was more than quoted in the booking you need cash.The boat trip was superb and Donal was a brilliant guide.

Absolutely stunning walking through the Gap of Dunloe, you had 2 options to go through it. Either physically walking it or taking a horse ride, the walk was 3 hours and horse is 90 mins. The road is completely paved so there's no way you can get lost, there are TONS picturesque moments so I do recommend the walk.

There is a boat ride back to along the rivers to Ross Castle which was roughly about 60 mins I could be wrong but I found that part was absolutely gorgeous, we also completely lucked out since the weather was sunny were as the week before it was raining like no tomorrow.

Was lucky with the weather when going through the Gap of Dunloe which was stunning.Went on the pony and trap but if you choose you can walk the 7 miles although their is a lot of up.Unfortunately the 14 mile trip on the lake it rained but it was made by the knowledge of the guide.Would highly recommend.

My wife and I decided to hike instead of doing the horse carts. Amazing views and scenery. We had a great time and would definitely recommend it. It was quite a long hike but we were looking to get a little exercise. Great trip!

This tour was nice for the price. It included drop off at the entrance to the gap. At that point one had to either walk or hire a pony trap. We chose to was but when we were supposedly,1/2 way into what was to be a 2 hour walk, we realized it was much more than 2 hours and worried we wouldn't get to boat launch in time. Luckily we were picked up by a nice couple driving the gap. Allow yourself 3 or more hours for the walk. The boat trip was nice and we were able to see wildlife with the guide sharing local history along the way.
