Connemara National Park Visitor Centre
For many visitors, Connemara is the highlight of a trip to Ireland. You can’t fail to be wowed by the lush hills, the soaring mountains, the sparkling lakes and the sandy coastline. This journey takes you up the 445m high Diamond Hill, from where you’ll have a superb view over the Connemara National Park. It’s a spellbinding 360-degree vista, looking out over the sea, the famous Twelve Bens Mountains and the towers and turrets of the neo-Gothic Kylemore Abbey beside a lough.
