Connemara National Park has been beautifully established with an interpretive vistor's center that tells all about the surrounding boglands, a very adequate soup and sandwich shop, and sanitary facilities. Best of all, the three loop walks are brilliant. The yellow walk is easy and short, the blue walk is intermediate and takes about 1.5 hours (3 km) and the third walk is a separate loop (3.5 km) that connects with the blue loop at about its half way point and goes up to the top of the mountain. The winds at the top can be fierce and the temperature difference from top to bottom is marked so be prepared with good clothing and shoes. The blue loop was moderate in exertion and with lovely views out over the islands Inishbofin and Inishark and the boglands. The views toward Clare Island and Achill and the twelve Bens from the top are magnificent. We went on a day when the winds were very light and the sun appeared between the clouds, and it was glorious.
