Lower Diamond Hill gains modest heights, enough to provide sensational territorial views, particularly of the surrounding Connemara coastline and islands, including Inishbofin, before descending back down through a placid valley, full of quietude and striking examples of Connemara's blanket bog. Diamond Hill Trail is not particularly challenging, though highly rewarding. The trail is well sign posted and highly accessible.Show more
