Two hour stop is not enough

Wonderful scenery, lots of place to walk around... Bus tours make a 2-hour stop here, but it is worth more than that, at least four!

Most Scenic park in Ireland. Mountains, lakes, rivers. Unspoiled environment. Great for trekking trips.

No trip to Connemara is complete without a visit to this gem of a park. There are easy trails for the whole family, as well as a climb up the Diamond Hill trails for those looking for a little more adventure. You can see the sea on a clear day, and it's still worth a visit on a wet day.... More

My favorite part of Ireland. There is something magic about that area. Every turn of the highway brings a new vista. And there are surprises at every turn. Killary Fjord is majestic. I could live there and never look back.

Connemara National Park offers so many places of energy. Sure, you can catch up with the main tour in Letterfrack and go for Diamond Hill (2,5 hours, moderate because of a steep climb). Its just wow up there. If you prefer a way less travelled by, you could go for the television aerial in southerly direction. Lough Nahillion lies between... More

This is one of the most beautiful places we've ever visited and I wish we'd known about it before we made our plans because we definitely would've planned to stay in the area to explore it longer. I guess that just gives us reason to go back though, right? Just gorgeous and so very peaceful, the sheep on the roadways... More

Stopped many times to capture the view. But the Kylemore Castle and Cathedral were truly beautiful. The roads were tight and twisty but that only added to the adventure. Loved it.

The Park is superb with really great scenery, if you get the weather. We also liked the visitor centre which has an interesting exhibition. We thought more could have been made of the cafe which was a bit ordinary. Out trip took us further north to Ballycroy National Park which is incredibly wild and remote, again with a really impressive... More
