Walking In Ireland – Connemara And Clifden

After Westport we headed towards Clifden. Ellen had read about The Twelve Bens in Connemara, but it looked like it would take some planning to do something like that. Instead we went to the Visitor Center for the Connemara national park and took a shorter walk up on Diamond Hill. This is a prepared path, so I assume very different than walking in the actual national park, but the view from the top of Diamond Hill was great and it was a good workout 🙂

In Clifden we had dinner and beer and had time for a short walk the next day before heading back to Dublin.
