We travelled there by car and found it very easy to find. It offered a free parking area and there is also an area to have a picnic .We could have hired a bike to get to the castle for a few euros for 3 hours. We choose to get one of the blue buses for €3.00 return. We visited... More

We went to the Glenveagh National Park to do some hiking. We didn't want to use the shuttle bus that is offered from the Visitor Center to Glenveagh Castle and back. I was suprised by how many people used the shuttle bus though and how frequently they go from the Visitor Center. After getting a first overview of the park... More

The National park is beautiful with amazing landscapes and we liked the castle and the guided tour which gave us the opportunity to know the history of the place.

We managed to get there on a beautiful day..... have to say it's kept really well by the staff. We took the shuttle bus to the castle but didn't do the castle tour. After going around the gardens taking some nice photos we decided to head the 3k to the waterfall........ my one gripe is that it's more like 3... More

Every year I visit, I am never disappointed! The upkeep of the castle is brilliant! Staff should be proud of how beautiful it is kept. This time we done the waterfall walk, it is quite a walk but defo worth it just make sure to bring water. We actually seen a deer couldn't believe it as all the other times... More

This is an amazing place of great beauty. Plenty of walks, cycles, and drives to take in the stunning scenery. The castle and grounds are great, but the park itself is huge and you can explore via other less frequented walks. The last time I visited I stayed away from the castle and accessed the park via Doochary and if... More

Beautiful setting, gorgeous trails, great day out for family. The castle itself is amazing, and the gardens so beautiful. Venture off on one of their many trails to get to more rustic/natural habitat

We were hoping to have hiked to the Castle and Gardens (4km) but we were running late already, so we ended up just taking the shuttle bus. It was a couple of euros for the concession. The bus ride was less than 10 minutes. It takes a similar route to the hiking trail to the castle. We got to the... More
