  • Glenveagh park includes two peaks of the two highest mountains in Donegal which are Mt Errigal and Slieve Sneacht. There are numerous walks in the park and beautiful lakes. Plenty of hill walking also...  more »
  • You can be sure of having a great day here. We were here on a sunny day but it's still a good choice on a wet day. Excellent facilities. Super bus shuttle for a small fee. Lovely cafe up at the castle...  more »
  • This is a must for those of us who think that Donegal is the best county in Ireland. Set in the wilds, this castle provides you with a unique experience.  more »

  • Hidden gem. Beautiful unspoiled Irish countryside. The walled gardens are amazing and well looked after. The cafe in the castle itself is a good choice for food. There's a regular mini bus to bring you from visitor centre to castle but I would recommend walking to the castle and getting the bus back weather permitting. The tour is informative and completes the visit.
  • took the 4km 40min walk to the castle & gardens & shuttle bus back for €1.50 due to rain. worth doing the extra 1.5km for the viewpoint, steep initially but manageable. lovely tearooms & castle
  • Amazing place. The walks are paved and there's a minibus to the castle if you find some of the walk to much. On a clear day the views are incredible and you can quickly find yourself alone by leaving the main path between the main entrance and Castle. Definitely a place to go to in Donegal.
  • Super place. Fabulous walks and a beautiful castle. Buses available to the castle, but it's a lovely 40 minute walk. Great place to spend a day.
  • Beautiful national park with a lake & majestic landscape. Absolutely wonderful castle with a great interior tour, gardens & rich history. Nice 45 min walk from the castle to the car park / reception area, but also has a bus service running every 15 minutes.
