Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Views amazing, a great place to stop after driving from Killarney. Good coffee and hot chocolate but a little expensive

We were in the area today, the rain was being driven by the wind, hard to stand up at times, it was a classic day, nature At it’s best..The views from there are superb. Loved it , well worth stopping and taking it in at the shop there.
Apparently the name comes from a lady called Moll Kissane who ran a pub in the area in 1820.
The workers loved her special brew Potato Whisky.
Descendants of Moll still live in the area today , great bit of history

Its a rest stop on the Ring of Kerry. One of the only places in Ireland to buy Avoca mills goods. I have my 4GG wool shawl she brought over with her from there so it was wonderful to see the mill is still producing. Even a loom on display. Buy some goods as you will be hard pressed to find them elsewhere

Another good stop off point on The Ring of Kerry. The first part of the Ring between Killarney and Kenmare is beautiful.

Perfect stop in nice weather. Beautiful view. Nice scenic road but not for unexperience drivers. The road is narrow and quite busy in summer time.

So... not really sure where the gap is exactly and the view isn't much, especially with fencing in the way. Free parking and easy enough to stop, so probably worth it to see what you think. I will say the drive through Killarney National Park around this area is very narrow and twisty with sharp rocks along the side of the road and frequented by lots of vans and tour buses. For drivers new to the left side of the road and the right side of the car, this may pose a challenge. For us, it resulted in 2 damaged tires- one that necessitated we put on the spare on the side of the road- and both required replacing. Speaking with the man that replaced the tires, we learned that this little stretch by Moll's Gap is a frequent cause of flat tires. So, drivers beware... when you see tour buses coming straight at you, just slow down to a crawl or stop completely- don't give in to your instinct to swerve to the left... there is no shoulder- just sharp rocks to pop your tires (or scrape up your mirror!). Other drivers understand and if they are tired of your slow driving or frequent stops, they will pass you.

We drove through Molls Gap from Killarney. Its a stunner of a drive as you ascend along winding roads. The views are amazing, one of the nicest I can remember passing in a long time. Just after you pass through you can stop at Ladies View lookout point and there is a nice cafe at the top- the Avoca cafe were the scones are great. excellent cycling route if you like hills <3

It was too misty to see anything when we visited! It’s only a few kilometres from ladies view where the view was better as it was a bit lower. There a shop and cafe across the road.

Fun lookouts that make interesting stops to break up a drive. We took plenty of pictures, probably more than we needed!
