Lord Brandon's Cottage

Cafe in Gap of Dunloe

At the Gap's southern end, the road twists steeply down to the remote Black Valley and Lord Brandon's Cottage, a 19th-century hunting lodge surrounded by lush, green water meadows with a simple open-air cafe and a dock for boats to Ross Castle, near Killarney. By car, it's reached via a steep minor road from the R568 near Moll's Gap.
