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

It is nice to see the lake and the island from different places.

Great easy walk, accessible for all ages.

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.

Nice lake, wouldn’t call this a hike or trek but a nice walk with lovely views and opportunities to stop and go for a swim! Took just over an hour at a slow-paced walk to complete. Only issue is finding parking if you’re not staying near by and it did feel like quite a commercialized, touristy area - much more so than Lake Bohinj!

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.

Beautiful all around. Stunning mt backdrops

Beutiful sorounding between the mountains, very easy walk around the lake. You can take a boat or gondola - called pletna - to reach the island with a church in the middle of the lake. Awsome view from the castle on the top of the cliff!

very nice. not hard and beautiful.

Beautiful adventure through the forest

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).

Great hike!

Beautiful scenes every angle. Easily done at leisure pace.

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 (and a rare one, if you're not comfortable going up a mountain without a trail). Cannot recommend enough!
