Went for a long drive through the remoteness of Connemara - it's kind of amazing that less than 1 hour drive from Galway city that you could be so isolated from "civilisation". This place is great to get away from everything that we see as normal, and get a glimpse into how rural Ireland could have been hundreds of years... More

The three walks are properly laid out, colour-coded and user friendly, not too strenuous although a little bit of uphill here and there - great for a couple of hours. Scenery is not spectacular, just OK

The national park is within driving distance of Galway city. If you have been partying in the hot spots of Galway this is the cure you need to clear the head. The park can be reached just outside the village of Letterfrack from where you will be able to view the peak of Diamond Hill. There is a shop and... More

I'v done this area a few times on a mix of weather so be prepared. It may be warm on the bottom of the hill but when you get to the top you'll need a jacket . Bring water and snacks just to keep you going as the long rout takes nearly 2 hours . With a few varied trails... More
