HIKE ALONG THE PARK AND SPOT WILDLIFE

Connemara National Park is one of the six national parks in Ireland and the only one in County Galway. It covers an area of over 7,000 acres, which includes mountains, boglands, and woodlands.

Some of the park's mountains, Benbaun, Bencullagh, Benbrack and Muckanaght, are part of the Twelve Bens range (or Beanna Beola).

One of the prominent peaks, Diamond Hill, offers spectacular views of the surroundings. You may be able to spot Kylemore Abbey to the north of the park.

This is a perfect park for those who love hiking. You’ll find plenty of walking trails, offering a variety of scenic routes. Keen wildlife watchers may also notice the thriving birdlife, as well as the populations of Connemara ponies and red deer.

Exploring the region further, you may come upon run-down buildings, including dwellings, sheep pens, ice houses, and ancient walls. There’s even an old well, Tobar Mweelin, which used to be the water supply for Kylemore Abbey.

Make sure to drop by the Visitor Centre to learn more, or to pick up some hiking maps. Here you can catch exhibitions about the region before setting off to discover it yourself.
