I enjoyed a lovely visit from Carraroe to Connemara National Park. The drive from Recess to Letterfrack is so atmospheric in any weather if you like sheep wandering the boreens!
The facilities and welcome at the National Park Centre are great. Didn't check out the museum but heard straight for Diamond Hill with my 7 year old daughter. Wear decent footwear as this walk is steep in places. No need to worry about the bog as the wooden platforms raised above the big protect the ecosystem and walkers alike.
Although we didn't quite get to the top - it was freezing and violently windy - there were fantastic views the whole way up of West and South coasts of Galway, the islands and peaks.
We met some lovely Connemara ponies on the way back down which my daughter greatly enjoyed too.
