This tour takes you through the spectacularly scenic Gap of Dunloe. Starting with a bus trip from Killarney center, you can then choose either to walk the 11km (7 miles) from Kate Kearney's Cottage to Lord Brandon's Cottage (where you have lunch), or to travel by horse-drawn "jarvey." The day ends with a boat trip on the Killarney Lakes to Ross Castle. This is a good option for those who want a guided tour with a degree of freedom, but bear in mind that the price only covers the basic transport by bus and boat. You pay extra for a jaunting cart ride (€20 per person) and for lunch. In all, the tour lasts about 6 hours.
