This is probably the most engineered hill walk in Ireland, with gravel paths, wooden broadwalks and stone steps all the way to the summit. Nevertheless, it is an good short climb (about 2 to 2.5 hours) and gives a commanding view of the Twelve Bens and north Galway coast. Start at the Connemara Park visitor centre
