worthwhile day out, the views on the road to get here are some of the best you will experience, the park itself has so many fantastic walks and a play park. there is wee short walk round the pound or a slighly more strenuous walk for those that like a bit more adventure.

You have the option of four walks, each one different. The walk to the top of Diamond Head is challenging but you will be rewarded with great views of the west Irish coast ant mountains to the east. The visitor centre is interesting with environmental and historical information.

Toured this area enjoying the stunning scenery despite the rain. Also enjoyed a delicious coffee at Tom King's Bar in Clifden.

The scenery is exquisite. A wonderful view around very turn. Take time going through the park for opportunities to hike. Stop for photo ops.

I liked the park. The mountains and lakes were nice. Saw lots of mountain sheep. Went to Kylemore Abbey. It was a long trip to get there but good to see. The fee for the Abbey, through the tour company was $8. Regular price was $13.

Little dog and I walked up to the summit of the hill (mountain?) in the Park, meeting lots of tourists on our way, but surprisingly only one other dog. The vista from the top is just amazing and well worth the hike, even if it's a bit cold and cloudy. There are three routes one can take, the most difficult... More

The Connemara is rugged and wild with outstanding natural beauty. There is good road access and some of the views are qute spectacular. Just outside the park is an amazing coastline especially near to Letterfarack. Very convenient to visit from either Galway or Clifden. One warning it could be raining!
