See the narrow mountain pass forged between the MacGillycuddy Reeks and Purple Mountain. It gets its name from the river running through the gap – river Loe. The Gap begins at Kate Kearney’s Cottage. The road is narrow in many places and winds through the pass and descends into The Black Valley passing five lakes, Coosaun Lough, Black Lake, Cushnavally Lake, Auger Lake and Black Lough. A short few minutes from Kate Kearney’s cottage is a picturesque old bridge, known to many as the ‘Wishing Bridge.’ Don’t forget to make a wish as it is said that wishes made really do come true!
