Came across a fantastic picture from the Graham Watson Archive recently of Sean Kelly leading the bunch through the Gap of Dunloe during the 1986 Nissan Classic. Having cycled that road a few weeks ago, I can testify, it is not easy :)
I’ve been meaning to post up details of this cycle for a long time and cycling it recently has finally given me incentive to do so. This 34 Mile/ 54 K route is very difficult on the legs for for the cyclist with a sense of adventure you will not be disappointed by one of the most scenic and beautiul parts of Ireland.
The cycle leaves Killarney and heads out the Killorglin road for approximately 3 miles where you take a left road that is signposted for the Gap of Dunloe and Kate Kearney’s Cottage.
