Upper Diamond Hill Trail is a 3.9 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near the city of Galway that offers scenic views. The trail is rated as difficult and primarily used for hiking.
The Upper Diamond Hill Trail summits the Diamond, providing a stunning view of the Twelve Bens and surrounding Connemara region. Situated in the West of Ireland in County Galway, Connemara National Park covers some 2,957 hectares of scenic mountains, expanses of bogs, heaths, grasslands and woodlands. Some of the Park's mountains are part of the famous Twelve Bens or Beanna Beola range. Diamond Hill is a very well-maintained path up a mountain with a spectacular view at the summit of the Twelve Bens and the surrounding Connemara region.
A great hike with spectacular views (especially if you hit it when the weather is good!!)
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 (and a rare one, if you're not comfortable going up a mountain without a trail). Cannot recommend enough!
