Fleming's White Bridge


Killarney (Cill Airne in Irish) promotes its-self as the gateway to the Ring of Kerry and has been Ireland's top town for tourism for many years, only losing its crown to Dublin in recent times. The town, although attractive, is outshone by the surrounding countryside with it's mountains, lakes, woods and overall beauty which attracts visitors worldwide. You can take a ride though part of this beauty by taking a Jaunting Car, the local form of horse drawn carriage. Always take a raincoat as the weather can be unpredictable. Killarney town has much too interest the tourist, not least, the fine restaurants, gift shops and traditional pubs, of which there are many.
The Gap of Dunloe is about 6 miles west of Killarney, a wild gorge about 12.8 kilometre's long with Macgillycuddy's Reeks and Tomies mountains on either side. The highest mountain is Carrantuohill, and at about three and a half thousand feet high is the highest mountain in Ireland. For the very fit a walk though the gap is the best option while for the less able a Jaunting Car ride would suit. There are also ponies for hire, the choice is yours. The scenery in the Gap is spectacular, with steep sides and deep glacial lakes. Don't try and drive though, the road is very narrow.
