Glenveagh National Park
Glenveagh National Park is one of six national parks in Ireland and is an outstandingly beautiful spot.
Glenveagh encompasses some 16,000 hectares in the heart of the Derryveagh Mountains. Such a great wilderness is the haunt of many interesting plants and animals. The golden eagle was reintroduced to Donegal by the Park in 2000. These lands were managed as a private deer forest before becoming a national park in 1975. With the completion of public facilities Glenveagh National Park was officially opened to the public in 1986.
Glenveagh National Park is open all year round. The Castle, Visitor Centre, cafe and Gardens are open every day apart from Good Friday and the Christmas period. You can find out much more about the park by visiting their website here
