One of Ireland’s six national parks, Connemara National Park encompasses 2,000 hectares of Connemara mountain countryside. With its mountains, expanses of bogs, heaths, grasslands and woodlands, Connemara National Park is one of the most scenic areas in Ireland!

 

There are four short self-guided nature trails (1.5km up to 3.7 km), which can all be accessed from the Visitor Centre near Letterfrack and will lead your group at the foot of the Diamond Hill or even to the top of it where stunning views of Connemara and the Atlantic Ocean reward your group.

 

The visitor centre provides also a picnic areas, a little tea room, exhibitions on Connemara landscape, and an audio-visual presentation available in five languages.

 

During peak season, there are guided walks, nature mornings geared toward visitors five and under, and evening talks.
