It was great to visit the park. We did the 3.1km lower diamond loop walk (blue) which is a well made rock & gravel track. Fabulous views. There are longer & shorter loop walks. The views are fabulous looking to the bays & sea and...More
Fantastic park for long walks, amazing photos & videos. Can't wait to come back. Just don't forget proper shoes as there can be stones on the road, a rain coat and drinking water. It is so beautiful up there that you might decide to stay...More
Only go to the top of the red trail , if the weather is good. If the weather is bad, the red trail can be dangerous and no views to see from there - I learnt the hard way, as I thought rain will stop...More
We stumbled across this area as we were driving along the western coast of Ireland. Was fun to hike and take in the beautiful seaside scenery. Glad we were able to see this area we were there in early September and the temperatures were in...More

Personally, I would probably stay a night (or two!) in Clifden as it is a charming town with a character all of its own. June will be busy there, however, as it is the start of the holiday season. Clifden is fifty miles or eighty kilometres from Galway and, while the road between the two places has been improved hugely in recent years, one must drive with care. Aside from Kylemore Abbey, there is much to see in Connemara and the scenery alone warrants spending a night or two away from Galway. So, pause in Clifden awhile, is my advice!!
