  • Perhaps the description of natural park is to which we are accustomed in Spain, but in general I'm feeling pretty poor, very bare parkland and with little high vegetation, except in the area of the Castle. If that allows good trekking/bike routes on both sides of the Lake.

  • Come for the history, stay for the views. This is a park that we are very much proud of, steeped in history, you can almost hear the fighting that went on in the hills that surround this stunning cast...  more »
  • A hike in the Glenveagh National Park is truly recommended. Best one takes correct time. Unfortunately, we had very little time for a short walk to the Castle. The way was very beautiful and due to the "real" Irish weather we saw about 25 rainbow above the Lake. If we should be again in Northern Ireland, we will drive again in the Park anyway.

  • Some great walking routes through Glenveagh. Some of the most scenic parts are at the far end of the valley from the visitor centre. That's where the waterfalls are. There is an entrance up from that end, but it's only reachable from a small road that goes between Churchill and Dungloe. Castle gardens are very scenic and the cafe in the castle is great when the weather is good and you can sit outside and watch the little birds hop around looking for crumbs.
  • Great place to go for a walk. If you are lazy, you can take a bus. There are a lot of gardens with Asian trees and much more. If the weather allows it, you can spend the entire day here. The castle closes at 5:45 PM, but you can still wander around.
  • Fantastic all times of the year, gardens and grounds immaculate. I live within 15 miles and still see new things or plants blooming every time. It has a loch and should be utilised with boat trips which will enhance the experience, the views from the loch down the u Valley would be unsurpassed in the country. The cafe at the Castle is very good,but a tad pricey to be honest. The tours in the castle are great very informative. A real gem in Co Donegal
  • Lovely gardens. Interesting castle with knowledgable/helpful guides. Worth allowing time to do the walk to and from the castle from the carpark.
  • Beautiful castle, grounds, and surrounding park. The staff was very helpful and friendly.
