We did the full loop up Diamond Hill. It's a well-maintained trail, with a bit of a scramble at the top and some slippery bits on the way down (sudden burst of cold wind and rain). I was glad for hiking boots, water, a sandwich,...More

Great for driving through or better, stop and hike about. One of the special places you can visit. Not to be forgotten.

The views are great and there are several trail options. The displays in the visitors center were interesting. They also had horses including a baby which also made for some great pictures.

This national park contains magnificent views and so much history. We were fortunate to tour by bus that afforded us the opportunity maximize our viewing time. We had ample time to hop off to snap pictures. Such history!

Nice trails with amazing views - you can do the more difficult Diamond Hill trail or simply stay on the lower trails. There is also a very nice tea room with delicious food.

Highly recommend, we climb diamond hill a few times a year. The climb is enough that you know you've done some exercise but not too challenging and the views at the top on a clear day are amazing!

This has been one of the best things we've done in Ireland. The trails are incredibly well maintained and marked (and the visitor center will point you in the right direction). The lower diamond hill hike is nice, but do the upper diamond hill hike...More
