Day trip from Galway touring Connamara coastline then into the National Park. A brilliantly clear and sunny day in May made the inlets and tarns sparkle and the mountains sharp against the sky. At times the peace and wilderness were reminiscent of a visit to New Zealand's South Island. Cannot recommend Connemara highly enough. Looking forward to a return visit.

If you go to Ireland, make sure to visit! Attention not a lot of place to park your car, so it's difficult to get out and take pics or enjoy the landscapes

Diamond Hill is 512 meters high and located in Connemara National Park in Letterfrack Co. Galway. The hill has three clearly defined routes which suits walkers of all levels but the red route all the way to the top is well worth the climb as there are fantastic views over the lakes and even back as far as Kylemore Abbey...

We did the lower diamond loop, great view, great landscape (difficult, however, with a child buggy as there are some stairs). We also did the Nature trail which is thus wonderful at the period of time.

Different to other parts of Ireland. No real expectations...stunning scenery. If you are visiting Galway, a must. Took a local coach trip...recommend it if you a a driver..let the coach take the strain! Also the commentary from local drivers provides not only good Irish humour but very interesting historical facts.

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.
