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!
