Another spectacular drive. The day was rainy and we arrived at the Abbey too late so we didn’t get to see the inside but the outside and grounds were gorgeous. Next time I’m in Ireland will visit. We saw wild goats and took some beautiful...More

Our group of four enjoyed the displays that explained the history and nature of the area. We hiked the lovely trails then enjoyed a nice meal of tea and potato leek soup at the tea house. Connemara National Park is a great place to visit.

We were staying in Cong but took a drive around this amazing part of the Country. The roads are windy but the scenery makes it all worthwhile. Lakes are everywhere and the terrain is tough to beat.

We went up on a particularly windy day but thoroughly enjoyed the views from the midway stop! Neither of us are avid hikers but found the trek relatively easy and fun.

How is it possible that a gem like the Connemara National Park can not be the headline attraction in Co. Galway. So much of the once beautiful Connemara countryside has been blighted with negligent local planning and what should be beautiful striking coastline along the...More

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.
