It has an informative visitor information centre, a good playground for kids and walks of varying levels of intensity. Do not miss the view of Diamound Mountain reflected in the waters just outside the visitor centre. The cafe is a bit tiny... More

Visit the whole park. It's worth it. Take your time to appreciate and enjoy the area. Make sure that you rent a mid range car.

expected to get rained out, but the clouds broke and made for a great day of hiking. Three loops to choose from: yellow, blue and red trails. If you do the red, you also have to do the blue. Each is over 3 kilometers. The blue is fairly flat but does have some impressive views, but the real treat was... More

So much sightseeing is urban or done by car/tour bus. Here is a chance to do something different. Connemara is well worth seeing, and this park is the place to see it, if the weather permits. We had a cool clear day that was perfect for a walk. From the top, or even up a bit, the views give a... More
