Moll’s Gap is a mountain pass between Kenmare to Killarney on the Ring of Kerry.

The route offers stunning views of the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks mountains and is a popular tourist location.

Moll’s Gap is named after Moll Kissane, who ran a shebeen in the 1820s, while the road was under construction.

Moll’s Gap is an example of a glacial breach, where a 500 metre deep glacier broke through the area 25,000 years ago during Ireland’s last ice age.
