This place is amazing. No charge to get in..... No charge to park your car..... No charge to use the toilet... Friendly staff to guide and direct you. The jewel in the crown is the castle/county house at the end of the long walk. You can get to it by foot for free, or go by mini bus for a... More

Unspoiled Donegal at its finest. A chance to see some wildlife up close and personal. The castle is nice to visit too.

a great place to visit. They is a great sense of calmness when we visited here. The forrest is beautiful and you could walk around the place all day. We never got to visit the house on the lake as we were caught for time but from what we could see it looked amazing. Donegal is a great place to... More

Visited this second largest national park in Ireland in January 2017 with 2 other adults and three children. What a brilliant day out it was! It is very child friendly. The park is about an hour, maybe a bit less, from Derry in Northern Ireland. The drive to it is stunning. We went via Churchill (R251) after bypassing Letterkenny, through... More

Met a volunter gardener that was unbelievable. She was everything a tourist site needs. Informative, enthusiastic, and correct in her information! She had information at several levels, as all of us were not at the same level as gardening goes. We will return again, when she is on site. The entire visit was a delight. Simply beautiful, and heart warming!

First time here and we had a wonderful time. A flat 4km walk to the castle from the welcome centre, mainly alongside a lovely lake with mountainous backdrops. We didn't explore the castle itself but did have tea and scone in the onsite restaurant. We did climb up to a lookout which did have some lovely views, but do bear... More

If you’ve got time while in Donegal, a trip to Glenveagh National Park, a remote valley, is worth the trip to experience this beautiful wilderness. The park consists of 16000 hectares of mountains, lakes, woods and bog, and to get a taste of the beauty a gentle 8 km walk (roundtrip) from the visitors center to Glenveagh Castle is truly... More

We have been coming up to Glenveagh for years especially at bank holidays. We were thrilled to discover the Education Centre this autumn which was open to famillies. They've been putting on the same music, craft stalls and so on for far too long. This is a hidden gem .... i cant understand why its not been opened before. This... More
