Getting There

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.

Entry to the park and visitor centre is free of charge. There is no charge for parking. There are restrooms and a tea room in the visitor centre.

095 41054

The Visitor Centre and main access for Connemara National Park is located near the village of Letterfrack along the N59.

Extremely well maintained trail with beautiful views. It’s a solid hike with good parking. It’s a bit too tame for me so 4 out of 5 stars.

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.
