A beautiful setting for artist Derek Hill's house. You can get a tour around the house, the tour guides are very well informed and enthusiastic - we defnitely enjoyed the tour around Hills quirky home.!! And we recognised lots of well known names in Hill's collection of art. There is an art gallery with current exhibitions in the grounds if... More

Had a lovely walk round the grounds, even went skimming stones. I got a scone and tea in the cafe, which was delicious and I thoroughly enjoyed the art work

Just a perfect period piece, must-see attraction full of atmosphere and the personality of the artists Derek Hill. Staff were fantastic, enthusiastic and eager to share their stories.

Derek Hill's house, garden an gallery are a joy to visit. Our tour guide Clare was charming and well- informed. Her approach was perfect for the intimate and domestic nature of the house. The collection and decor are sophisticated and eclectic with wonderful examples of this major artist's own work alongside that of other significant artists and designers.

Fascinating place even if you think William Morris invented an old motor car, as I once did. For years it was one of Donegal's best kept secrets but now we can all enjoy the art and sheer quirkiness of this secluded gem. The guides will have you fascinated with their stories, you'll love the walls covered in unusual displays, but... More

A modern gallery space with tea room beside the main red house, set in acres of beautiful lakeside gardens. We've visited a number of times and the collection is rotated regularly, giving good coverage of Derek Hill's art collection as well as the latter life of the artist during the 30 years he spent at Glebe House. He really did... More

Take a diversion on the way to Glenveigh visitor centre! It was the unexpected highlight of our trip to Donegal. This little house isn't much in architectural terms but is crammed with a fascinating collection of art and memorabilia collected by English portraitist Derek Hill. Our guide was superb and had an encyclopaedic knowledge. Tour takes about 45 mins. Everything... More

A marvellous place to take time out and look at some interesting pieces of art and look back over the life of one of Donegal's more famous adopted locals.The gardens alone are a delight as is the tea shop and galleries.Just a few paces down the garden is one of the more interesting Gartan lake views

It is just a garden as i never been to the nain house. It is not like Glenveangh National park. They are organizing few events for the summer like local craft fair. It is good to visit once
