I really liked this place with snow capped hills and mountains in the distance. We had a beautiful walk on a Sunday morning. Had coffee and cakes in the coffee shop. Reasonable priced in a cosy friendly environ5ment. The walk in from the car park...More
The park grounds are scenic, we visited on a sunny but cool day and I can’t say I was disappointed. There was a visitor centre with restaurant and toilets where you had the chance to view some exhibits or purchase a ticket to get the...More
This time of year can be hit and miss visiting Glenveagh Castle as the Tea Rooms can be closed. Sundays especially.Phone ahead like we did a few days in advance. Sundays for the moment leave you without the "Tea Rooms" but sometimes the visitor centre...More
We travelled here in early December 2018, we had the bikes on the bike rack of the car and parked in the general car park. We cycled up past the castle and onto the waterfall, its a wonderful wallk or cycle. As it was December...More
We were advised to walk in from the Poison Glen side which is West of Churchill. If you can find the spot there's enough space for a couple of cars to park.
There were plenty of mountain bikers and walkers despite the time of year...More
Unfortunately, I think I only have one or two days for County Donegal on a whirlwind tour. What do you recommend as the "can't miss" things? I was looking at Glenveagh National Park & Castle but I couldn't get a good sense about how long this would take or the other places that we should stop. My boyfriend has family ancestry from the area, but doesn't know anything specific.

You probably need to allow up to half a day for glenveagh but it depends. For instance there's an audio-visual show which you may or may not wish to do, you can walk down to the castle (quite long but i've always got the bus down and walked on beyond the castle where few people go), then you wait for the guided tour, you maybe go to the tearooms, walk the gardens, head up to the viewing point... So I think half a day is realistic - if you're keen walkers you could spend most of the day...More

I read the article in the Irish Times. All I can say is somebody finally took a serious look at Limerick the City rather than Limerick the Urban Myth. For those of you who haven't been down here in a while, you might take a look. As pointed out to KPB and others - a multitude of good pubs and restaurants. Some SERIOUS shopping in The Crescent Shopping Centre and other outlets around the town. Two very good Concert Halls in The University and the Institute of Technology, Some wonderful...More

Firstly thanks to all the wonderful contributors here for all the amazing info I have gathered in planning this trip. We are a couple in our late 50’s, love scenery and short hikes looking to travel from mid August. I have a map of Ireland which is covered places to see from my research. The plan is to take each day as it comes, know the options and see what we can. Looking at doing B&B’s and for the 3 night stops will do self-contained airbnb’s Day 1 Arrive Dublin lunchtime, hire car,...More

Definitely stay in Skerries for your first day. It's a beautiful fishing village with great restaurants and real traditional Irish pubs. Redbank hotel has probably the best accommodation in the town and there are mainline train and bus services into Dublin City centre.
