Explore the most popular trails in Connemara National Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

One of the best hikes I’ve had in a long time. Great Day! Perfectly maintained trails. We did the full gambit of yellow to blue to red and finished with the blue. Lots of nature on backside and the views are fantastic.

Well maintained trail. Good views in all directions. Misty at top.

Beautiful sunny day. Trail is relatively easy and very well maintained. Good views, especially from the top.

Terrific hike with great views. We hit wind, rain, and heavy fog as we approached the summit - very glad we had waterproof jacket and pants and walking stick. Path a bit slippery but managed ok. Starts at the Connemara national park visitor center with parking. Long steady rise on gravel path (blue trail) followed by steep stone steps to the summit (red trail loop). Returned by same blue path as latter half of blue loop under repair.

Beautiful hike on a well maintained trail. Unfortunately we had to turn back 3/4ths of the way up due to incredibly high winds, I'd estimate around 60kph on a sunny and warm but blustery May day. Very disappointing as this was our only hike in Connemara, but we still got some good views for the portion we did.

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.
