The Gap of Dunloe, is a magnificent glaciated valley comprised
of high cliffs and isolated lakes. Formed over 20,000 years ago
when great glaciers carved a path through Ireland's highest mountain
range, the MacGillicudy's Reeks. Towered over by Tomies and Purple
Mountain behind which lie the Lakes of Killarney.
The Gap of Dunloe today with its cliffs and waterfalls, is one
of Co. Kerry's most beautiful valleys. This natural beauty is one
of Co. Kerry's prime tourist attractions, which can be viewed via
jaunting cars from Killarney, pony trekking or simply on shank's
mare (On Foot!).
