Great hike! Definitely would not rank as “hard” more moderate if you are used to hiking and in shape. Took us 1.5 hours to do the trip. Well maintained trails that were pretty well trafficked.

Lovely trail loop, well maintained stepping stones nearly all the way up. Bit steep towards the end but well manageable for a newbie. Stunning views of Connemara all round.

Exceptionally well maintained trail. Laying thousands of stones is remarkable! Breath taking views.

Went on a sunny day and it was absolutely gorgeous. Trail gets steep but there are sturdy rock steps consistently on the trail. View from the top is lovely but can get pretty windy the higher you go. Visitors center was also great place for lunch.

loved it! not difficult and very enjoyable but you still need a level of fitness to take on any walks like this.

Amazing hike in Galway. Weather can change quickly. Look out for slippery rocks, especially on the way down.

Great trial, beautiful view and easy to walk.

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.
