A two-hour loop walk in Connemara, this route follows gravel paths, wooden boardwalk and steps up the slopes of magnificent Diamond Hill.
Strenuous but satisfying, the trail through Connemara National Park 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.
- Amazing mountain and coastal views.
- Spot historic Kylemore Abbey’s Gothic turrets and placid Kylemore Lough from Diamond Hill’s summit.
