Bleak, exposed, wild landscape. Be careful of hikes from national park - full Diamond Hill loop is nearly 7km, and involves scaling the ridge up the mountain. We misread the map and were forced to turn around. Will be back to complete in the summer....More

An easy walk along the rugged landscape of Connemara National Park, and its all mapped out for you. Unspoilt scenery as far as the eye can see. Can't wait to go back.

Absolutely stunning alien landscape. I had many ideas of what would be my favorite part of Ireland, but this was one I didn't see coming.

There are three hiking trails distinguished by duration. We took the middle one which was expected to take 60 minutes and even though we walked at a casual pace, we completed it in less than 45 minutes - I suppose we should have stopped and...More

What happened to Connemara National Park? I thought it used to be much bigger. To me, it seemed very contained and cordoned off. The walks seemed limited and to cap it off there was a hideous, high boundary fence that reminded me of a prison...More

Informative visitor's centre and clearly marked walkways, including up to the top of Diamond Hill, which has excellent views. Also good to see the Centre has made accessible the graveyard of the Letterfrack Industrial School, where so many youngsters were effectively incarcerated not so long...More

If your wheelchair is motorized, you will probably be OK. Mostly flat and rocky. Note - it will be a bumpy ride.
