For 250 years, the Killarney Day Tour has been the most famous visitor excursion in Ireland. Mountains, lakes, woodland and legend in scenery that has no equal worldwide. The Gap of Dunloe day tour is a journey which encompasses Killarney’s entire National Park. During the tour, passengers will see such sights as the Kate Kearney’s Cottage, the Gap of Dunloe, the Old Weir Bridge and Ross Castle.
The tour involves 3 separate stages:

  1. Bus Transport from our office at the Old Weir Lodge on Muckross Road, Killarney to Kate Kearney’s Cottage at the beginning of the Gap of Dunloe.

  2. Travel through the world famous glacial valley that is the Gap of Dunloe. Horse and carriage transport is available to rent (extra payable directly to the ponyman) when you arrive at Kate Kearney’s Cottage. Alternatively, you can walk through the ‘Gap’.

  3. Boat transport through the National Park with one of our experienced Boat Drivers. The boat tour brings you through the 3 lakes and 2 rivers of the National Park. A guided tour by the driver full of folklore and legends will ensure a memorable day for all ages.

The tour described above is open to variation. Another way to do the tour, would be to hire bicycles in one of the local bike rentals in Killarney on the morning of the tour. Cyclists then travel down to Ross Castle where the bikes are put in the boats for transport to Lord Brandon’s Cottage. Note: The boats leave Ross Castle at 10.30am. Bikes are taken from Ross Castle to Lord Brandon’s Cottage only as this allows passengers the rest of the day to cycle the 11km through the Gap of Dunloe and the 14km from Kate Kearney’s Cottage to Killarney at their leisure. Bike rental is not included in the price of the tour.
