Great day out

Beautiful walk and congratulations to the staff for all the work they have done. Sadly the one way system lacks signage as many people just ignore what signage is remaining. Sadly the paths are too narrow to accommodate two way traffic in the Corvid day and age.

Amazing Diamond Hill
Oct 2020
Wow, just wow, the views from Diamond Hill are exquisite! was even treated to a rainbow while hiking up the mountain. My wife and I liked how the park set up the trail to be one-way. We went mid-week in mid-October and hardly anyone was there. Great place to explore.

Stunning Views

When visiting Galway this was one of the top places to visit on our list. The day we visited the weather was overcast but was still nice and enjoyable to walk in. I really liked that there is various levels of difficulty for the Park so you can pick which trail is best suited to you, they even have shorter, less difficult trails that would be perfect for children. The views from the trails are breathtaking, pictures can’t do it justice! Also at the beginning of the trails there were fields with beautiful horses that were very friendly! I fell in love with the one pictured below. There is also a lovely little coffee shop at the end of the trails where you can grab a small snack and coffee and sit at picnic tables to rest for a bit! Would definitely recommend taking a trip here, great exercise with rewarding views!

The Best Day Ever
Oct 2020
We stumbled on Diamond Hill only because nearby Kylemore Abbey was closed.
We are both in upper 60s but fit and healthy, so we decided to give climbing this Hill (mountain) a go.
I won’t say it wasn’t challenging at times, especially nearing the top, but it was so so worth the effort.
The lower walk is easier with a beautiful board walk on some of it, and stunning views.
There is a lovely cafe at the base with friendly and knowledgeable staff. And more importantly plenty clean And modern toilets.
Do attempt the top walk if you are in this area and have suitable clothes and footwear it is well worth the effort. We can’t wait to go back again in 2021 (Hopefully)

Diamond hill.
Sep 2020 • Couples
We climbed to the top of diamond hill which took us around 2.5 hours.
The views were amazing!! Tough walk but a fabulous feeling when you reach the top!
I would highly recommend bringing a change of clothes with you incase it rains as there is no shelter!
We got soaked on the way down and wish we had a change of clothes.

Lovely scenery

We stopped here to stretch our legs.

The walks are lovely, we did the Valley and the Diamond Hill short walk.

It was a lovely afternoon and a welcome interlude on our drive.

Highly recommend. Various trails to follow. Make sure to bring water, a camera and a rain jacket. It is very exposed and no shelter if it rains. Would go again.
