Yesterday we toured the Gap of Dunloe. The walk was about eight miles in length in a wild gorge bordered by Macgillycuddy’s Reeks and the Purple and Tornies mountains. The journey through the Gap of Dunloe is spectacular. The gorges are very steep and the glacial lakes are very impressive.
Lorraine and I really had quite the workout. And, of course, I am walking along with my tripod, my camera and my backpack, stopping every few minutes to take another photograph. We only had 3 hours to get to Lord Brandon’s cottage as that was where we needed to join a boat returning to Killarney. We just made it in time.
Here are some photos of the Gap of Dunloe.
We finished up the tour by spending a couple of hours boating through the Lakes of Killarney. Our tour finished here at the Ross Castle. And, later that day, we also toured the Muckross Abbey.
