This was perfect. Picked you up on the Main Street in Killarney, friendly staff drives you to the trail head at the gap of dunloe where you can get a snack, coffee or souvenirs at an adorable cafe before your trek. The hike was a good amount of time, not too long, beautiful views around every turn
This tour is great! This tour was a little hard to find but once you did they were very helpful. The hike is beautiful! And the boat ride is even better. The boat driver was really nice and gave some good informative info about the lakes and park! Definitely recommended!
This was a great tour. I would recommend it to anyone and Viator always delivers.
The view is stunning all along the 11K walk. The boat ride across all three lakes was breath taking.
My grandson's had a marvelous time. The center was easy to find, the trip out fast, our carriage and driver fantastic Thanks Suzie and the boat ride interesting and informative. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area. Will return next year for more of this beautiful area.
This was by the far the best tour we did in Ireland. The views in the Gap of Dunloe were amazing. We were lucky to pick a nice sunny day for the tour, as weather and visibility are a factor. The trip up by jaunting cart and return trip by boat to Ross Castle are recommended.
Sadly, did not get to go on this one because of weather, but WOW the trip we took was amazing. We are going back to do this one. :
Excellent trip. starting location was easy to find, the Jaunty Driver was very entertaining. The scenery was breath taking. The boats used on the lakes seemed a bit small but were very cozy. Lots of fun on this tour.
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.
We like to hike in the countryside, so we opted to walk through the gap instead of taking a jaunty cart extra expense, not sure how much it was. It was a beautiful day and took us about 2.5 hours to hike apx 7 miles. There is a cafe at the end of the hike by the lake if you need a drink or sandwich. We almost missed the boat, but they called up another boat to take us across the lake to the Ross castle which is very close to the town Killarney. It was a lovely hike, we had a great time!

Very professional tour company. We decided from a recommendation to do the Gap of Dunloe instead of the Ring of Kerry, and we were extremely pleased. Great views, great history and a pace which was perfect!
The day we took the Gap of Dunloe tour it was on an off hard rain and gusty winds. This wasn't a problem because we had dressed for the weather. My biggest complaint was the horse drawn cart. We paid 20 euros a piece for this which is well worth the money. The driver basically was in a race through the gap with the other carts. He whipped and poked the horse on constantly to keep him trotting/running up and down the tar path. It was border line animal abuse. The tar path was wet and the horse could have stumbled from be driven so hard. You are only allowed to get out to walk the steepest part of the gap. He seemed disgusted when we didn't move fast enough. His cell phone was ringing off the hook where someone wanted to know what was taking so long and where was he. The driver did not stop for us to shoot any pictures. On the flat part in the National Park he continued to whip the horse to gallop to the finish line.
The boat ride is very nice and relaxing even with the on and off rain.
I would suggest walking the gap. It is a very picturest area and worth seeing..
