Nice stop, clean bathrooms, a little over run with tour buses. We got there just before the bus and it was calm. When the bus got there it was a zoo.

The main level is a shop and one must climb a set of stairs but the staff was friendly, the food was good, and you can't complain about the scenery unless the weather is bad.

We only had cake and coffee but the savoury dishes looked delicious. The cakes were excellent, but they are enormous - probably should be half the size and half the price - be aware and maybe share! Views amazing from the first floor.

Description
Our Moll’s Gap location is a spectacular spot to stop and enjoy the scenery on a journey around the Ring of Kerry. Set high on a rocky ridge, our store overlooks mountains and lush countryside, with Ireland’s highest mountain, Carrauntoohill, to one side, and the Gap of Dunloe to the other. The store features many of Avoca’s fabulous gifts, throws and scarves from our Wicklow Mill, homewares, ceramics and more, while the award-winning Cafe is the perfect place to enjoy some of the best casual dining the South West has to offer.
