Glenveagh National Park

Glenveagh National Park covers 16,000 acres in the centre of the Derryveagh Mountains, Co. Donegal. The wild area is home to a variety of flora and fauna. Before the area became a national park in 1975, it was managed as a private deer forest. The park was officially opened in 1986. Within the estate is Glenveagh Castle, a stylish 19th century mansion constructed between 1867 and 1873 as a romantic highland retreat. The rugged beauty of the area is contrasted with the luxury of the castle interior.
