Very pretty with great views. We stayed up that way one evening. Watch put for the sheep as they seem to be a little more free range compared to the rest of Ireland we drove.

Words can not describe the day spent in Connemara National Park. Amazing sights, wonderful history! Great little villages with very friendly people. Recommend anyone visiting the west coast visit Connemara.

The difficult route up diamond hill is worth the coronary stress. Phenomenal 360 degree views. Only good hike here though, could get a bit crowded on a busy warm day.

Beautiful landscapes everywhere you look. There are also sheep and famine walls dotted throughout. If you go through on a bus tour you will be at the mercy of the tour company's schedule, but enjoy some great tall irish tales on why the sheep are...More

If you are near Galway spend a day or two and drive through Connemara and visit as many small towns and villages you can. It has a wonderful old word feel and so much to see, a step into a simpler time.

Excellent and interesting facility with friendly staff. Plenty of excellent parking, and well sign posted routes - great for families and no need for mountain type boots. Toilets are clean and plentiful, cafe is good with healthy choices to!

Stopped here and since we needed some exercise did the walk (RED) right to the top, about 8 KM round trip and vertical of 400 Meters over mostly improved trail, being gravel, wooden board walks, or flat stones place to form steps. Great photo ops.

It's an amazing place and so many different walks . You could spend all day here and still not get bored. Very desolate and perfect for a picnic and children to play . It seems like a popular tourist attraction. Very relaxing and laid back.

There are some ponies in a paddock near the top of the first level walk going up Diamond Hill. I've seen them every time I've been there, except the last time, when it was raining torrentially.
