We arrived late to the park and was so sad we did, as we could have stayed there all day, it was that breathtaking. We did have enough time though to hop on the bus up to the castle and walk around the grounds. I'd definitely recommend walking up around the back of the castle to the hill above for... More

This is heaven. Acres of landscaped gardens carved out of the spectacular Donegal wilderness. The setting couldn't be more breathtaking - mountains, lakes, deer, golden eagles blah blah blah. The mock baronial castle I can take or leave but some might be impressed. I visit every year and it never fails to deliver.

Visited Glenveagh today with a group of language students. We were very well looked after with courteous staff. Spent three hours here and could have stayed longer. Great day out.

Loved the scenery and the castle and the lovely walk to and from the castle. The coffee shop was gorgeous and had a treat after our walk. We walked round the beautiful gardens and took some wonderful pictures of the scenery and some family photos too.

My wife and young three year old child visited the Glenveagh National Park and whilst it was raining that day, we couldn't help be amazed with the scenery and sense of history in the place. The castle was a walk back in time and was very historic. The gardens were first class and the amount of pictures we got at... More

We drove through the Glenveagh National Park and although we didn't have the time to stop and go for a walk; we had a lovely time rod trip through the mounts.

Spent an afternoon enjoying the impressive gardens, grounds and the inside tour of the Glenveagh Castle. A must-do if you're in the area! Beautiful walking paths through the gardens and along the lake!

Spectacular views with lake/mountains, castle/grounds very interesting - also, the "67 steps" are a good workout! - but for me the staff at the restaurant deserve a special mention - they were lovely and had made up a gluten free pasta for my mother without us even asking (had rung about the need to book the previous week and must...

A trip from Donegal Town up to Glenveagh National Park rewarded us with beautiful nature trails, a wonderful castle tour, and important Irish history lessons. We spent a day traveling in the northern part of County Donegal with our visit to this national part being the majority. This day trip had a lot to do with how we liked County... More
