Northern end, facing south Southern end, facing north Auger Lake, looking north from the Gap of Dunloe
The Gap of Dunloe is a narrow mountain pass between Macgillycuddy's Reeks and Purple Mountain in County Kerry, Ireland. It is about 11 km from north to south. Within it are five lakes: Coosaun Lough, Black Lake, Cushnavally Lake, Auger Lake, and Black Lough . These lakes are connected by the River Loe. Between the first two lakes is an old arch bridge called the 'Wishing Bridge' so named because it is said that wishes made while upon it are destined to come true.
