Hi - trying to organise a hiking trip in Letterfrack - in Connemara National Park - are there any guided tours available? If anyone has any suggestions - for a grioup tour of Diamond Mountain for 20 people.
We have been to the park a few times. There really is no need for a guided tour, the paths are well marked and fairly straight forward. Here is a link to the map of the trails in case you are curious: connemaranationalpark.ie/images/downloads/Co…
I walked up this November, FYI, the Visitor Centre was closed, the toilets were accessible.
Damian knows Diamond Hill very well. Hopefully he will see this post here and respond. He is an incredible source of information.
Thanks Bean for the nice words.
Diamond Hill is a great hike and easily done by yourselves, just make sure you go down the far side as many still continue to return the way they ascended and can clog up the narrow path at the top.
I would take a look at Paul Phelan's website and pick one of the many great hikes he has listed. Errisbeg near Roundstone is one that springs to mind. The elevated views of Dog's Bay Beach are mesmerising.
Easily one of the best hikes is off the mainland. Inishbofin is a great island to visit and in particular the West Quarter Looped Walk. No need for any guide. It's well signposted throughout. Scenery is unrivalled.
Take the 11.30 ferry from Cleggan. Actually a night on Inishbofin is hard to beat. We've had many a great one over the years.Edited: 27 December 2016, 22:14
