The world famous Gap of Dunloe is a narrow mountain pass
between the MacGillycuddy Reeks and Purple Mountain.
Ireland’s highest mountain range is home to the highest peak in the country, Carauntoohill, which sits at 1038m. Access to the Reeks is by Cronin’s yard, a rest stop for hikers that's been in use for hundreds of years.
Parking, toilets and wifi are provided, as well as space for camping and a small shop for refreshments.
Access for HGVs is not practical as you have to drive a few miles on a tight country lane so small vehicles would be recommended to get to Cronin’s yard.
