I have been trying to read a lot about doing the gap, but I am a little confused. My boyfriend and I will be coming from Cork City and should get to the Gap around 11. Without doing the actually tour, about how long does the hike take? Are the boat tours a must do? Can you buy a boat tour once you there, or do you need a reservation? Is it doable to do the gap, drive to inch beach, allow about an hour there and check in to Emlagh lodge in Dingle by 7pm?
Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
