Fantastic scenery, really well kept. We didn't do a tour of the castle as we were pressed for time, We had a walk around the gardens and took some wonderful photos. Fabulous views. We will definitely be back.

Glenveagh is such a hidden gem in Donegal. People of all ages can find things to do and all with the backdrop of the beautiful Deryveagh mountains. A must visit for anyone in the area.

Beautiful scenery and friendly staff especially the bus driver who told us the whole history of the park and castle which tempted us to go and do the tour of the castle

This is a beautiful national park really showing off Donegal. There are lots of walking/cycling trails varying from 4-8km but a bus is available from the visitor centre to the Castle. It makes for a nice family day out and the Castle has a tea room that serves lunch and tasty deserts for when you are finished exploring and want... More

We visited the park in a sunny but cold day for March.The park was quiet without the visitors that you can meet during the summer. We you come to the national park you must park your car at the visitor center. From there you can visit the park and castle/ castle grounds by food, bike or get the visitor's bus... More

Visited on a beautiful day in April when the Park was absolutely stunning. Began with a short movie at the Visitor Centre before setting out to walk to Glenveagh Castle and Gardens. We could optionally have cycled (Bikes are available for hire) or taken the bus (small charge) but the walk is very beautiful. We were surprised to find we... More

My wife and I visited Glenveagh National Park whilst touring Ireland over the Easter break. It is a beautiful park with plenty to see and do for everyone. If you want as relaxing day you can take a bus from the car park to the Glenveagh Castle and spend the day touring the Castle and the walking round the beautiful... More

We arrived at 11.30 and were so efficiently welcomed, parked and directed to activities. By 12.30 the car park was full and the parking well down the road. I recommend arriving early. It is beautiful. So many walks, of varying length, by the beautiful lake, a shuttle bus up to the castle and gardens(recommended and just a few euros) and... More
