Beautiful. Breathtakingly beautiful. This is an easy drive from Galway City. I highly recommend taking the scenic route that goes past Kylemore Abbey. There is an incredible hiking trail up Diamond Hill. And it's FREE (?!). The cafe is excellent, too (but NOT free :-).

We stopped to stretch our legs after driving a while and found a very interesting visitor center about the history and evolution of the peat bogs. We also took a nice walk on the property revealing some of what we'd learned. Nice stopping point.

This is a wonderful opportunity to safely climb a mountain 'Diamond Hill" in picturesque Connemara.

Best to pick a dry and clear day... More

We took a bus tour to Connemara National Park through Lally bus tours out of Galway. We truly enjoyed the trip you see a lot when you don't have to drive. The driver narrated the trip and was extremely informative. The different areas of the park changes and is quite beautiful. A must see!!

Connemara offers great views and sceneries, you can see many cows and sheeps wandering free in large spaces, a nature that's still not contaminated, the ocean, and even the people you're going to meet is really welcoming and willing to tell you legends or giving good advices about the best way to visit places.

Nice views, but beware the roads are not in good shape. The weather was rough the day we visited. It was hard to enjoy the mountain views.
