I only had time to stop by for a few hours, so I went on a 2 and a half hour hike. The landscape is out of this world and beautiful and paths are well marked out. I would have liked to have spent more time here.

We took the middle route (blue) on a windy day but this didn't spoil our walk. The route is very well set out so you can take in the views without them being spoilt, also there is no way of getting lost! There is a longer route to the peak which we didn't fancy with the wind, but some appeared... More

Beauty, nothing I had imagined Ireland to be and I loved it. My husband and I could have spent days exploring Connemara National Park. Kylemore Abbey is a lovely visit as well.

We travelled through the Connemara national park on a coach trip, we would have loved to explore far more of this wild and beautiful scenery.

Free to enter and hike around the park. 3 hikes all different in length. Nice tea room to relax inside or out.

We were surprised that this park was so tame, given the wild landscape we had driven through to get to it. Gives a flavor of the Twelve Pins, but better views are to be had elsewhere.

Brought granddaughter to nature talk on moths and butterflies. Carol, the educator was great with the children. Talk very informative and then two lovely crafts, stain glass butterfly and caterpillar made of pipecleaners and buttons. Great fun and all for free. Walked half way up Diamond Hill afterwards. Great experience for adults and children alike. Followed by refreshments in the... More

We travelled the amazing Wild Atlantic Way (or part of it) and stopped off at the Visitor Centre En Route. This is a great stop off - our 6 year old loved the play centre and parking/entry is free. We wished we'd allowed time to go off on a proper hike into the park as this was a great place... More

Stumbled across this place. Ended up climbing Diamond Hill. The views are unbelievable. Its an easy-medium climb- with steps and paths the entire way to the top. Takes about 3 hrs in total to complete. Worth the effort for the views
