The castle grounds and its surrounding walls are absolutely gorgeous and very peaceful! The cafe is lovely also, we visited for tea and scones and weren't disappointed! A lovely day all round

The castle looked interesting but the tour wasn't that good. Seemed short and didn't see very much. The gardens around the castle were beautiful and we enjoyed a lovely walk!

Absolutely love this place so many lovely walks and the cafe by the castle makes amazing cakes and superb sandwiches. I got to Donegal twice a year with my partner and our dog and we always visit the castle and park

The views are beautiful . The walk up and back is 8km from the visitor center or you can opt for the Bus at a small fee . The walk back is well worth it . The gardens are beautiful I would say even better in summer.

We had a fabulous visit to Glenveigh, I have been there before yet it still takes my breath away. Staff are so lovely both on the buses in the reception and in the shop and restaurants. A must see when visiting Donegal.

We enjoyed a few hours at this Castle....we got the bus from the Visitor Centre, only 2 Euro. Then had a walk in some of the gardens, a visit to the cafe and a guided tour. It was super. The robins eat from your hand!
