The Diamond Hill Hike in Galway is a really popular attraction in Connemara National Park. The hill is part of the 12 Bens but standing on its own, will give you the best panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Don’t let the word hill fool you, I would for sure consider it a mountain, standing at 445 metres. BUT, paths and steps have been added to make it accessible to all. Whether the sun is shining or the clouds have rolled in its aa great thing to do. Perfect for those who love the outdoors, hiking or photography. Make sure you don’t miss it.

The Island has a small population of under 700 with only one main village – Knightstown. For a small Island you won’t be short of things to do though. There are so many great Valentia Island attractions, from stunning walks to unique fossil discoveries.

Although I have always been one that cares for the environment, something in this documentary really hit home.
