Experience the serene environment at Glenveagh Castle, a Baronial-style mansion in the Glenveagh National Park. Captain John George Adair built the castle around 1870 and developed the original structure and gardens with his wife, Cornelia Wadsworth Ritchie. Tour the site where Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, and Clark Gable (among others) spent their vacations. Take in views of the mountains, lakes, and forests while exploring the grounds. Stop by the visitor center for more information on the castle and gardens, which were given to Ireland in 1981.
