Glenveagh National Park lies in the heart of the Derryveagh Mountains in the northwest of Co. Donegal. It is a remote and hauntingly beautiful wilderness that includes the Castle and Gardens.
Glenveagh Castle is a 19th-century castellated mansion and was built between 1867 and 1873. Its construction in a remote mountain setting was inspired by the Victorian idyll of a romantic highland retreat.
The 16,000 hectares of Glenveagh includes most of the Derryveagh Mountains, the Poisoned Glen and part of Errigal Mountain and is a beautiful place to walk the hills and follow trails.
The park extends over a large area of north Donegal and you have free access to roam from all points. Hillwalking in Glenveagh National Park can be challenging for the novice, but there are also relatively easy trails described below for all levels within the park. Our popular ‘Trail Walker Bus‘ can bring you to some of our best starting points, conveniently leaving your car in the car park for your return.
