an amazing hike with the family. highly recommend

This hike was a lot better than expected. The trail is well marked and easy to follow with beautiful view points along the way. The weather can be unpredictable, however the rain and consequential Rainbows made it worth it.

Very well marked and nicely kept trail. Beautiful views the whole time.

Loved this hike.

A wonderful climb in a beautiful place. The walk was not overly strenuous. It was only the last part that was steeper and the wind picked up so made it a bit .ore difficult. Still it was all so worth it! The views were spectacular as disability was great. The descent was not at all difficult as the ground was nice and dry. Look forward to doing it again in the future!

lovely kids as young as 3/4 can go to top

Not very hard. The trail has stone steps. It gets very windy though. Better to go on a sunny day to enjoy the views.

hard to beat the scenery on top of the diamond mountain, a good training run, best to go early in the morning when its quiet.

Very Nice one. It is not so hard. When I was there, all age people were there. Amazing views. Just make sure you get a beautiful sunny day for this one.

A amazing walk that I have done a few times.
Only to be done on a quiet day.
When windy it can be dangerous to go to the top.
Steep on some part but overall a definite walk to do in connemara.
Can't wait for the next sunny day to go again.

What a windy walk! It’s steep and nearly all uphill. Step off the rail and sink. But the wind is the toughest part.

Great hike. Follow the route start Left, finish Right. The wind can be blowing so dress appropriately.

Took a bus from Galway to Letterfrack for the day and this trial did not disappoint. Beautiful views at the summit. Would rank it as moderate in terms of endurance relative to most mountains I’ve climbed, short and simple (no hands needed).

on Diamond Hill Loop

Beautiful hike with breathtaking views. Traffic on the trails in July and August but worth it.

Excellent trail. Easy to find and the road to the park is beautiful. Enjoy every step of the way.

This hike is absolutely beautiful, but it was harder than I thought. It's not the length, but the hike does gain elevation fairly quickly, and you are walking up stone steps with water trickling down them and strong winds buffeting you from all sides.
But the views at the top are absolutely worth the struggle. You get 360 degrees of amazing wild, Irish landscapes. You can even see the Atlantic Ocean!
It took me about an hour to the top, with several stops, and half an hour to get down.

With fantastic weather, the views were incredible!

Awesome hike with great views of the country side and the ocean. Try to go on a clear day to get the full experience. We experienced "gale force winds" which certainly made the upper portion much more interesting (and a bit scary) but would do it again in a heartbeat. I may be biased since my husband proposed on this mountain, but the views were beautiful from every angle. Bring proper shoes for rocks and rain gear because the weather can change quickly!

Great views on a clear day, challenging but worth the effort

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. 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.

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!
