Glenveagh National Park: Chauffeur-Driven Day Tour

"Immerse yourself in the wild and rugged landscape of the Derryveagh Mountains."

With its breathtaking mountains, crystal clear lake, waterfalls, epic valley, native oak woodland, and majestic castle, Glenveagh National Park is one of the most magical places to visit in northwest Ireland.  

The fairytale-like Glenveagh Castle in Donegal's National Park is truly a sight to behold. Nestled on the glistening shores of Lough Veagh, the castle, which was built between 1867–1873 is full of stories of aristocracy, inhumanity, generosity and scandal. However, the grounds of the garden are an oasis of biodiversity in an otherwise stark landscape. The various gardens are replete with exotic plants and sculptures which can all be seen along easily accessible walking trails.

Now home to a popular visitor centre, the interior of Glenveagh Castle is a delight to explore during your visit to the park. Here, you can find an in-depth array of artifacts explaining the history of Glenveagh Castle.

After this adventure, join me for a scenic drive through the Derryveagh Mountains to see the Poison Glen, the Bridge of Tears, the Bridle Path and Mount Errigal, a former volcano and Donegal's highest peak.

Added extras include entry to the Castle interior, surfing lessons, a trip to Kinnegar Brewery or Crolly Whiskey Distillery and Newmills Corn and Flax Mill.  

No other national park offers such a diverse experience and such incredible scenery. A Glenveagh National Park Chauffeur-Driven Day Tour is an experience of a lifetime.
