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.

Great views from the top in all directions

very nice. not hard and beautiful.

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).

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

Spectacular view from the top of Diamond Hill.

Great hike!

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!

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!
