Glenveagh National Park


Monday 22nd August

Glenveagh National Park was on the top of my free to do list today and it didn’t disappoint. In fact it might be my favourite National Park so far. There’s six in Ireland and I’ve managed to visit four on this trip. When you arrive at the park there’s a 3km walk to the castle and gardens and the gardens are absolutely beautiful. There is a charge for the castle but the gardens are free to visit. I was lucky with the rain, it kept stopping and starting so I did manage to snap some photos between showers but they don’t do the place justice I’m afraid.

I continued on to Glebe House which you do have to pay for but there is also the converted stables which now house a gallery with works by Jack Yeats and other artists. The gardens of the house are set next to a beautiful lake which is the perfect picnic spot…
