What a location. The views from the coffee shop are unreal. Panoramic view of the valley. Lots of salads and cakes with coffee or tea. Not the cheapest but I would not expect it to be. Come for the views.

We were able to eat outside, as we had a dog with us, and the food was delicious. Especially when overlooking the Kerry landscape. The menu was extensive, with all the food looking fresh and delicious.

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.
