"At Avoca Moll’s Gap, we’re lucky to enjoy a spectacular location on the Ring of Kerry, boasting stunning views from our spot on a rocky ridge between Ireland’s highest mountain, Carrantoohil, and the Gap of Dunloe, it’s the perfect place to stop for some lunch, coffee or shopping as you enjoy discovering the beautiful Kerry," Eileen O'Leary, Avoca Molls Gap, General Manager, said.

"Our store has had a redesign, so we’ve made sure we’re looking our best for our regulars, visitors and holiday-makers this summer!"

There is a new food market on the ground floor with a wonderful selection of artisanal, Irish ingredients, freshly baked breads and scones, homemade jams and chutneys, sauces, spices and lots, lots more. There is a curated selection of Irish cheeses and fine wines, hand-prepared meals and a mouth-watering range of our famous sweet treats and tray bakes.

"We’re very proud of the community of fantastic local suppliers we work with, and are champions of Irish provenance. Of course there is also our wonderful retail space for all your shopping and gifting needs, too. You’ll find a hand-picked range of fashion, homeware, books and more, as well as our much-loved Avoca soaps, mugs, scarves and our famous throws, woven in our Wicklow Mill," she added.

"What’s more, we have some new outdoor seating for customers to enjoy as they sip their coffee or enjoy some lunch while taking in the stunning vista. If you’re taking a trip along the Ring of Kerry this summer, make sure you stop by."

“While in the past, a taxi was the only option for those not cycling or driving. Now a service to Killarney is available every Friday morning from my townland of Barleymount. This is just one example of the network of bus routes criss-crossing the county thanks to local link.”

“This project is a notable success as the figures show. Investment in public transport helps alleviate congestion, increases community cohesion and reduces rural isolation. This is all welcome news for the locality,”
