Description

View of the Gap of Dunloe, with a lake in the foreground, a bridge a little farther away, and mist rising from a mountain. The walk to the Gap is described as follows by the authors:

As you approach the Gap, you will be arrested by some of the thousand and one women, boys, and girls, who will gather like a rolling snow-ball as you proceed. They will try to tempt you with goat’s-milk and “mountain dew;” but some of them will offer you stockings of their own knitting; in all ways they will try to wile the visitor out of halfpence—with a good supply of which he should therefore be provided.
