  • Get a great satisfaction and relaxation here. Garden do not delicate, plant beautiful but not floating boastful. You can walk to high point overlooking castles, mountains and lakes, and the outlook is excellent. The European statue has a sense of art and taste, the whole people become the heart of God, do not want to leave. Park area has to pay shuttle bus can ride, but the foot can walk up to 3, 4 small time wind beauty, visibility high. Must come first.

  • This is a beautiful place to have a breath taking walk. The paths are well looked after, you will need to have a bag of energy before you start. Take your time and you will be able to enjoy an amazing visa. A number of walks in this area are a pleasure and give window to the unchanged nature of this great place.
  • One of my favourite places on earth. The scenery is breathtaking, you can just imagine yourself back in the 1800s. The tea rooms were beautifully decorated for Easter with yummy cakes very reasonably priced. There was a traditional music session in the Orangery which was enjoyed by our girls especially when they could sing along with Baby Shark lyrics. Thanks for a lovely afternoon.
  • One of the best places to visit in Donegal, in Ireland, in Europe.. very interesting history of house, gardens fabulous, walks and hiking for every level. Solitude that's hard to find anywhere else in abundance here. I love it here.
  • Absolutely stunning and beautiful, like no other National Park in Ireland. There are some beautiful walking and cycling trails. One of the highlights in the park is the Glenveigh Castle. There is also a shuttle bus service from the car park near the entrance to the castle, about 4.5km away. The castle also has beautiful themed gardens and traditional walled gardens as well.
  • Amazing scenery. Been here many times but today was extra special Mother's Day and on leaving we got up close to 2 Deer. What a rare sight. Magical!
