Glenveagh is a magical place. as I live quite near, I will drive up to the park quite regularly. There are beautiful walks, the scenery is breathtaking and a lovely place to go to escape from the world. The grounds and gardens are amazing. My kids love to explore the grounds

Had the most beautiful walk in Glenveagh national park. The tearoom was great with fantastic food and friendly service. Thanks to the lovely guide at the centre we enjoyed the audio visual and exhibition 😀

There is no better way to spend a summers afternoon - the walks are amazing. The fresh air is second to none. All the staff are lovely & extremely helpful and its lovely to stop-off for some tea after all the walking.
