This national park surrounds Glenveagh Castle, and is just gorgeous. We chose to walk the 4 km each way to the castle and back, but there is also bus service. The lakes, mountains and wildlife in the area all contribute to the experience. And the gardens around the castle are stunning. In addition to the main road to the castle... More

Great family day out. Weather was beautiful, lovely scenery, free day out as we walked but the bus would only have cost a few euros if we had decided to use it.

Visited here last week with three others. It was a lovely experience from eating in the Cafe to the shuttle bus drive along the lake to the castle. If you're visiting the area, don't miss it!

We visited this park during a recent visit to Donegal. The park has plenty of things to do from walking, hiking, cycling or visiting the castle. We had a really lovely lunch in the restaurant where the staff were very friendly

The park is simply beautiful. Easy to reach, very well organized in terms of parking, buses to the castle & gardens, facilities and all. It was just a wonderful experience and would definitely be able to consider it my Sunday afternoon walk if I lived close by.

Beautiful walk around Gardens and Tour of the Castle was very interesting though the Tour Guide could perhaps speak a little slower especially for those not from the county or even the Country.Scenery is spectacular and we finishef off with coffee and cakes in the delightful tea-rooms.
