Lower Diamond Hill Trail is a 1.7 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near the city of Galway that offers scenic views. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking and walking.
Lower Diamond Hill gains modest heights, enough to provide sensational territorial views, particularly of the surrounding Connemara coastline and islands, including Inishbofin, before descending back down through a placid valley, full of quietude and striking examples of Connemara's blanket bog. Diamond Hill Trail is not particularly challenging, though highly rewarding. The trail is well sign posted and highly accessible.
One of my favorite hikes in Ireland! Connemara is one of the beautiful areas of the country, and the Diamond allows you a fantastic opportunity to see it from a great vantage point. If you're up for the extra challenge, i highly recommend continuing on to the Upper Diamond Hill Trail, but even if you don't, you'll still get a fantastic view without too much exertion.
