Connemara National Park is located behind Letterfrack village and is just a few kilometers from Kylemore Abbey. There is an interpretive centre with the history of the area, tea rooms and some nice gentle walks with adequate parking. In addition there is a marked walk up Diamond Hill, with boardwalk laid over difficult boggy ground. The climb takes about 2 hours up and down and there are stunning views from the top of South West Connemara and Kylemore lake. A days venture here would usually bring you through the stunning Inagh Valley and Kylemore Abbey is well worth a visit as well as beaches at Renvyle which are nearby.
