Glenveagh National Park is the second largest park in Ireland. Home to many species of plants from as far as Chile, Madeira and Tasmania, the park is known for its serene beauty and breathtaking view.

The estate was established by John Adair- infamous for evicting 244 of his tenants and clearing the land so they would not spoil his view of the majestic landscape. The park is home to the largest herd of red deer in Ireland and the formerly extinct golden eagle which were reintroduced into the park in 2000.

Highlights include:

  • Walks
  • Wildlife
  • Gardens
  • Nature Education Centre

The spot is a must-visit for tourists and nature lovers to experience Ireland in its true glory.
