    The Gap of Dunloe is a rugged mountain pass on the eastern side of the Kerry's MacGillycuddy's Reeks close to Killarney Town. Also described as another "Wonder of The World". It is famous for its rugged scenery, unspoilt landscape and corrie lakes. It begins alongside Kate Kearneys Cottage and takes the walker through some rugged mountain scenery of a mountain gap. There are fantastic vistas of rocky overhanging mountains and deep and mystic mountain lakes. The route carries you through the Gap into the Black Valley. From there route leads to the Upper Lake and and the Queens Cottage - which is a fantastic walk on its own - offering great views of the Upper Lake and the surrounding woodland.

Known as The Iveragh Peninsula it takes you on a journey through landscapes of breathtaking beauty with spectacular mountain ranges, rivers and undulating countryside. The Bog Village is located on the main Ring of Kerry road between the town of Killorglin and the village of Glenbeigh. This village has won a national heritage award. Experience life at the turn of the century and visit thatched cottages, hen houses, blacksmith quarters, an old forge and a turf cutters house. You can also see the rare Kerry Bog pony grazing in the fields, this pony almost became extinct, in the mid 1990's there were only 20 ponies in the whole of Ireland, of which 15 were here in Kerry. After your wonderful insight into life in the 18th century Ireland, there is also the opportunity for visitors to sample an Irish coffee at the adjoining bar and restaurant.
