Diamond Hill Loop Walk
Walking
Take a captivating 7km trail through Connemara National Park and embrace County Galway’s inspiring mountain scenery, Diamond Hill’s spectacular summit and superb island views too.

A two-hour trail in mesmerising Connemara National Park, this route follows gravel paths, wooden boardwalk and steps up the slopes of magnificent Diamond Hill.

Strenuous but satisfying, the trail climbs up to Diamond Hill’s summit (400m) and showcases the breadth of Connemara’s coastline - including the idyllic islands of Inishturk, Inishbofin and Inishark and pretty Ballynakill Harbour. The sweeping views from the summit also stretch to the majestic Twelve Bens, Mweelrea and Tully Mountains.

Reward yourself after the trail with a coffee and a treat in the park’s café and tea rooms or visit nearby Letterfrack for more delicious dining options.
