Moll's Gap, c.1910

Moll's Gap is a pass on the N71 road from Kenmare to Killarney in County Kerry, Ireland. On the Ring of Kerry route, with views of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks mountains, the area and its shop is a panoramic spot visited by thousands of tourists each year. The rocks at Moll's gap are formed of old red sandstone.

Moll's Gap is named after Moll Kissane, who ran a sibin (an unlicenced public house) in the 1820s, while the road was under construction.
