Since I no longer hike, I settled for the view of the park most people get - from N59. We still got the vistas, including the 12 Bens, and the bogs and heath lands. Our driver did a great job of describing the park's history, from megalithic tombs to later ruins, and the park's eventual creation from lands of an industrial school and Kylemore Abbey.
Someone needs to check the Tripadvisor algorithms that identify places like this as a shop. To my knowledge, the park doesn't even have a shop!

The rain was spitting in our faces but the hike was beautiful. We did not see the cows that are almost extinct but maybe they were in another part of the park? Probably nicer during summer season.

We hiked the most strenuous path up to the highest view- it was fabulous. Very well maintained path. On site bathrooms and cafe. Would recommend hiking here

This is a delightful area, we had a wonderful drive through the park and were able to see the tops of most of the 12 Bens.

Arrived here with slightly rainy weather. However set out on the walk to try diamond mountain. On the way the wind increased and rain poured down, but we carried on and reached the summit, with no view at all due to the cloud and rain. A really good walk though, with a bit of scrambling on the way up.
Returned to the visitor centre for coffee which was disappointing, but dry.
