take a step up

Join us on a guided half-day hike in the Connemara National Park, this is a moderate two and a half hour hike of Diamond hill along with one of the four trails that are accessible from the park grounds.  It is a looped walk that is 7km in length and has a height gain of roughly 500m. With a guide, you have the added bonus of learning about the park, its flora and fauna, the blanket bogs that are a feature of the area, the local history and wildlife. It is one of the only walks in the area that has a path from top to bottom therefore you do not require hiking boots. It is worth noting that there are steep sections at the top and it can be very windy up there, but the views are well worth it! Bring a bottle of water and suitable clothes for the weather on the day.

Helpful instructors
My gf Shannon and I really enjoyed this! We went on a road trip round Ireland and this was by far the best thing we did. The instructors were great and helpful and I'd recommend this to anyone going that direction.
