  • 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.
