Glenveagh National Park, Churchill, Letterkenny, Co Donegal

Set in some 16,500 hectares of County Donegal mountains, lakes, glens and woods, with a large herd of red deer, Glenveagh Castle is a 19th century, castellated mansion built between 1867 and 1873.

Surrounded by the famous Glenveagh Gardens, its construction in a remote mountain setting was inspired by the Victorian idyll of a romantic highland retreat. John Townsend Trench, a cousin of its builder and first owner, John George Adair, designed it.

Access to the castle is by guided tour only
