One of the highlights of our trip to Ireland in April 2012. Lovely hiking/walking paths, great visitor center. We stopped on a whim on our way back from Kylemore Abbey since we were in the area, and I am so glad we took the time to do so. Some of the most amazing views in Connemara.

Don't look for road signs, don't plan, watch out for sheep, try and keep your jaw off the floor and the car on the road as you drive through this wild, rugged, romantic wilderness. No words do this park justice, this must be experienced in real living technicolor.

Amazing views, landscape and a few sheep in the road. Rolling hills, rocky pastures and beautiful lakes and streams. A beautiful photographic area filled with lots of history.

Well laid tracks through national park, with commanding views. Really well done display in the visitors centre but a real drag having to keep dog on lead, made coming down high hill very challenging.

Such friendly and charming staff. Very informative museum info on the local natural history of 'bog land.' And then climb the mountain up and struggle a bit but it's worth it. Views to savour for ever.

We went to Connemara to go for a hike in the National Park. Upon coming to the visitors center we asked what options there were for hikes It turned out they had 3 routes of varying lengths. We opted to go for the longest where you climb Diamond Hill. You have to have a more then decent condition for this... More

This is a beautiful and free park where you can hike up a marshy path to a mountain with enjoyable views of the coast beyond and the Connemara landscape, ponies and sheep included!

The views were great here. We hiked up to the top of the mountain ridge and were really happy that we did. We did enjoy Killarney National park better, but this place is a must see!

We walked up to the top of Diamond Hill with our two sons (7 and 11) on a fabulous sunny day. The climb was a bit challenging but the views from the top are jaw dropping. Loved it.

A disappointing experience in one of the most stunning settings on the planet. Fenced in from all sides and with nowhere to walk, Galway is a nightmare for walkers.
