Full description
The tour begins with a coach journey to Kate Kearney's Cottage. On arrival, you can arrange to take a jaunting cart ride through the six mile pass. This traditional Irish horse and cart ride will incur an additional cost which can be paid on the day. Alternatively, you can hike the six mile pass and enjoy the beautiful scenery at your own pace.

Once through the gap, boats will be waiting on the Gearhameen River for the homeward journey via the enchanting upper, middle and lower lakes. On-board the boat, enjoy beautiful views of the national park and discover the famous Old Weir Bridge. Travel to the historic Ross Castle where coaches will be waiting to take you back to Killarney.

Ross Castle is a 30 to 40 minute walk from the town center so there is an option of staying at Ross Castle after the boat trip and making your own way back to Killarney.
