No trip to Connemara would be complete without visiting the National park at Letterfrack. There is a cafe here and an easy to follow history of Connemara - the bogs, peat turf cutting, famine, birds, flora and fauna. There is a beautiful play area for children. There are three walks yellow, blue and red. We chose the hardest the red.... More

We drove from Ballinrobe to Westport via Clifden, the views were absolutely breathtaking and I stopped every few minutes to take photographs! I so love Ireland.

You can chose from 3 different trails...the yellow (30 min), the blue (1 hr) and the red one (2 hrs). The blue one takes you around the National Park and it's kind of flat (after the first climb) and compared to the red one.

Beautiful scenery everywhere in and around the park. Great spot for photographers. Unfortunately we only stayed for an hour because we had to rush but I would definitely come back to hike the trails more and see what else the park had to offer. Would definitely recommend for any nature lover to come here.

The wilderness and beauty of the western part of Ireland is at its best here in the Connemara National Park. With mountains, waterfalls, rivers and ocean this has it all. Enjoy the wild Atlantic way, the open spaces, the rugged outlines of ancient dwellings, the wildlife, the fresh air and most of all the friendly people.

Drove around the entire peninsula and loved it. The landscape is beautiful, the coast line is amazing, the towns quaint and enjoyable.

We were staying in Letterfrack and went into the Connemara National Park on a few occasions. The scenery is absolutely stunning. There is a lot of climbing and this is not suitable for anyone who is infirm but it is well worth the visit for the views.
