This park has three loops, clearly marked and a trail that loops around by the visitor center. The center was closed while I was there, but there are still clean restrooms available. There is also a board of information of local tour and such at the visitor center.

It was a beautiful day but you could easily have a weekend of nature walks etc .. We were there for the day in June and enjoyed our level of nature trails but there are other trails for the more experienced and adventurous!!

The beauty, the vast area, and the locals who we have always found second to none. The Irish quisine and most of all the friendly welcome the Irish locals always give us.

What spectacular views! Although it was a typical Irish misty rainy cold day when we visited, it was well worth the drive. We stayed at nearby Ballynahinch Castle (highly recommend) so it wasn't too far a drive, but a nice quiet isolated drive. We didn't meet a single vehicle as we drove along N59. Beautiful scenery along the way. Stopped... More

The facilities on offer here are perfect for all kinds of visitors including groups. Climbing to the summit of Diamond Hill is not suitable for children (in my opinion) and perhaps only suited to older teenagers and adults or perhaps very fit, surefooted kids. It is quite dangerous in a few places. However, the views from the top of the... More

If you like the stories about fairies, banshees and leprechauns, are big fans of Martin McDonagh or just love pure wild and absolutely wonderful nature, you have to drink a pint with people who lives between some of the hills of Connemara. Because you will feel like you find a very unique paradise. At least that is how I feel... More

Connemara National Park is perfect: entry, and parking, are free, as is admission to the informative exhibit on local flora, fauna, and the phenomenon of the turf bog, as well as a 20-minute film (in several languages). There are toilets, and a coffee shop with light snacks. For me, though, the best thing about it is the walking paths. Connemara... More

My husband & I had a great time on the drive through the Connemara National Park. It was definitely one of the most beautiful places we saw in Ireland. There wasn't any traffic on the windy road in October. We visited the Kylemore Abbey to break up the drive & that was well worth the admission fee.

This place is worth a visit! The national park is a gem. very beautiful. It looks just like the movie "P.S i love you" - i know the movie is filmed elsewhere in Ireland, but this is the best way i can describe it. Gorgeous. We have been to the park many times with different friends, and it is breath-taking... More
