The Connemara Walking Center does not exist anymore. The Diamond Hill trail obviously has not disappeared:-). Go directly to the Connemara National Park visitors centre at the entrance of Letterfrack (coming from Clifden on N59). Go early in the morning because the trail is very busy in August. There are 3 different trails, the longest brings you to the top... More

You can choose from 3 walking distances. The red one leads you to the top of the mountain. When you' re back you can visit the visitors centre and have some more information or a zipp of tea

Walks for all - we walked with a 10 year old who loved every minute of it despite constant drizzle. So much to see and the views are fabulous.

It was hard work (took about 4 hours round trip, but I'm not in the greatest shape) but the view from the top was totally worth it! Make sure to take sunscreen or a hat, food, and plenty of water. Walking sticks would have been nice on the way down, as the first section of the descent seemed quite steep... More

This is on the N59 out from Clifden about 15 minutes drive. When you arrive at the car park it is a bit confusing as you've to walk behind the little hut and down a steep hill to the actual Centre. The Centre itself is well laid out and lots of facilities. Buy a map of the Walks for €1.... More

The hike to top of Diamond Head was spectacular and the weather perfect to see Tully Mountain and Kylemore Abbey in the distance. The trail is gravel and boardwalk in sections, well maintained.
