Once again part of a coach trip. Was able to use my mini scooter which went into their minibus. Was able to use the scooter touring the house and the battery just made it back to the coach...with a 100yard push!

Despite the pouring and incessant rain, we walked for hours through this magnificent scenery and absolutely loved it! Didn't bother visiting the castle, which seemed a bit touristy, but the surrounding area, in particular the walk to Lough Inshagh and back, is breathtaking. Highly recommended!

This park is well worth the detour. Scenic lakeside setting for a castle and extensive grounds and well-tended gardens.

We visited Glenveagh at the end of August with our daughter, son in law, and 2 young grand daughters. Our party were not looking for a strenuous hike, and there were walks to suit most levels of competence, We found it an enjoyable and informative experience and the facilities were very good even though it was very busy the day...

The walk up to the castle was lovely with great views even in the rain. Had lunch at the visitors centre which was acceptable but not amazing. Staff were super friendly. I would walk up to the castle and around the grounds before getting the bus back. Did have a gorgeous lemon drizzle cake in the castle cafe! I imagine... More

We had an amazing day out here, enjoyed the long walk through the scenery to the castle - we were lucky with the weather. Had a fab light lunch at the cafe and then an interesting tour with a very funny and informative guide. A great day out was had by all

This is a lovely place to visit and well worth walking from the car park to the castle the path is good for any ability and the views are stunning. The castle is good and the history is very interesting. And there is a bus for a fee if the weather is bad!
