Apparently a Gap in Ireland is what we would call a Pass. The Gap of Dunloe (Irish: Bearna an Choimín) is a very famous one - it is a narrow pass between Macgillycuddy's Reeks and the Purple Mountains near Killarney, Ireland - a distance of approximately 7 miles. The road is narrow and difficult for motorized traffic, so we didn't do it in the bus. We just looked at it from the shopping stop. The most popular form of transport for tourists is the horse-drawn Trap but sometimes people hike it or ride bikes.
