Connemara is the most touristic park in Ireland, every year, thousands of travelers come here to explore its wide open spaces, breathe its fresh air, and enjoy the sublime views. The Park is a small wonder in itself: a real paradise for walkers and nature lovers. The park offers three types of hiking trails, ranging from the least experienced to the most experienced.
