Both the castle and the park deserve a visit. The views are astonishing and the guided tour well worth the price.

We visited mainly to tour the castle, but what we saw of the park was amazingly beautiful. The lakes here reminded us very much of the Scottish lochs, as did the rugged landscape. If you have time (we, alas, did not), take the time to explore some of the many miles to trails through the break-taking scenery.

Set in stunning countryside, Glenveagh is well worth a trip. It has a visitor center where you buy a bus ticket to get to the castle, and to be on the safe side, you should book your castle tour in advance. I did not have the time to wait for 3 hours till the next free space on a castle... More

This is the perfect place, with beautiful lakes and scenery, with all the facilities that you need, the restaurant had a great selection of food and also after a walk through the grounds there is more tea rooms at the castle

We visited Glenveagh National Park and I suppose we were lucky that we had sunshine all day, a rare thing this summer. The staff were friendly and helpful. The gardens were in full bloom, we strolled around there was lots see. We hired bikes in the car park and we cycled around by the lake, it was not expensive but... More

Glenveagh National Park is truly stunning. Although we couldn't take in the longer hikes due to a mixed age group we still enjoyed the wonderful sights in Glenveagh. A magical place to visit.
