glenveagh castle


Hello-  Heading off on our trip in just a week now.  

I'm wondering if Glenveagh Castle is worth a stop.  I'm interested mainly due to how beautiful the valley sounds.

It would be on the day we leave Derry (we'll be there 3 nights) and head to Donegal (one night).  Our main stop for the day is Slieve League.  128 miles, 4hrs 7 minutes driving according to Google Maps, including the castle.  If you include the castle, you're driving on an 'N' road versus an 'R' road, so maybe not that much of a time increase in real world driving. 

After Donegal we're heading to Sligo for 2 nights, so stopping at the cliffs on the day we leave Derry really makes sense for us, so hoping for good weather that day.

Very exicited, 4th trip, all new stops!  Brian

Glenveagh is worth a stop. Wonderful castle, gardens, lake and trails. However, you probably need at least 2-3 hours there. Less it you only do the castle. I suppose it will depend on weather, how early you start, etc.

...'how early you start, etc'.

Yes, very important to get out the door at a decent time. The website says the castle opens at 0915. I've e-mailed to see if the gardens and trails open earlier.
