  • Nice views, beautiful landscape, nice place to relax and rewind. Cycle hire available and nice walk around. Very stunning views of the lake, lot of cycle and wall paths. Castle has very nice and beautiful garden, a cafe and woods around. Trip buses are needed to reach castle. Recommended trip with kids. Better visit on summer times.
  • Glenveagh is certainly worth a visit. The gardens were not at their best when we visited (early September) but we still enjoyed seeing them. Best of all was the walk along the side of the lake to the waterfall. A beautiful setting.
  • Great park, lots to do and see. There is a wonderful Fairy Kingdom and Gaints Lair to explore. It is well done and very interesting. Great for all ages but doesn't completely suit all abilities. There is a coffee shop and toilets. Big car park, lots of walks and an interesting forest drive.
  • Great hikes, garden, castle. Free to park. Great visitor center and cafe/restaurant. Beautiful nature. Can rent bikes there and cycle to the castle and further on to the waterfall. Shuttle bus to the castle also or can walk
  • This is a wonderful park. We went on a drizzly day and it was still beautiful. I would love to come back on a sunny day and complete some of the hikes available.
