Maybe worth a quick stop. Nice view of the valley, but it was a little foggy when we were there. Nothing too fantastic compared to Ladies' View.

Just stop by, get out and enjoy the view and the overwhelming peace that comes with the view, because it does not matter how many people are around you at the moment, that valley and the mountains around it are monumentally beautiful

Beautiful views along the drive from Killarney to Kenmare. The entire valley seems to open up beneath you. The drive was fun, on narrow twisting roads, but there are many places to pull off for photos. There are no cafes open in winter, but eating lunch in Kenmare and then heading back to Killarney was perfect.

Ignore the few reviews that say this isn't worth seeing....Moll's Gap is just beautiful. Okay, it's not as impressive as Conor Pass, or as cool as the Gap of Dunloe, but, how anyone can say to skip it is beyond me. If you're driving the Ring of Kerry counter-clockwise, the Gap is towards the end of the trip, just before... More

From Killarney to Kenmare, you can drive right on through the gap, miss it and never know. From Kenmare to Killarney, the pass through the gap is spectacular! The view of the lakes and floor bottom are beautiful!

One of many beautiful stops along the Ring of Kerry. Worth stopping for some amazing photos. The scenery is so pristine.
