Hike Diamond Hill, Connemara NP

Rate this Adventure Ireland Diamond Hill Car Park

Added by Bertrand Lanneau

The perfect hike to get a view on Connemara valley.

An easy yet beautiful hike to the top of Connemara valley. It will take you about 3h to do the loop. Be careful of the wind because it can be really strong! 

The path is really easy to follow, you will have a lot of signs everywhere.

In the summer the place is crowded but there is not so much people who are reaching the top. At the start you can find an information center, a bar/restaurant, some tables to have pic-nic and a free parking.

If you want to hike with a song, I advise (or not) this french one : Michel Sardou - Les lacs du Connemara.

Enjoy!
