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 is a haven for hikers, photographers, and wildlife enthusiasts. Explore miles of scenic trails, breathe in the fresh mountain air, and marvel at the stunning views surrounding you.
Glenveagh Castle is a 19th-century castellated mansion built between 1867 and 1873. The Victorian idyll of a romantic highland retreat inspired its construction in a remote mountain setting.
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.
