Beautiful park with manicured paths - gravel, well set steps, and boardwalks over boggy spots - over moderate hikes. The views from the mid-level trail were impressive. Visitor's center offers a EUR1 laminated pamphlet to compare views with locations, and get your bearings. I only wish we'd come prepared to take on the 2.5 hour full circuit. Pack a picnic... More

Not to be missed for its beauty. This was a trip worth taking, even on a tour. Weather of course can be highly variable.

The park is great from beginners to advanced hikers. It is where Connemara Marble comes from. Its not a far drive from Galway so definitely worth the trip for the walk and check out the marble while you are there.

We got there late afternoon And took the one hour loop, wish we had time for the the 2.5 hike to the top.

It's about a 30 minute, medium level (stair... More

The stark beauty of this landscape is incredible. The saying"Not a tree to hang a man, not a drop of water to drown a man, and not an ounce of dirt to bury a man is so true.

I'm not a fan of the outdoors but I do love this place. It's so open and wild and fresh with fab views from the top of the hill. The on-site museum is a nice little touch and the café upstairs is a fab little place with lovely coffee and yummy things to eat
