Glenveagh National Park
The second largest national park in Ireland, Glenveagh encompasses some 16,000 hectares of mountains, lakes, glens and woods, with a herd of red deer. The park is home to exotic and delicate plants from as far afield as Chile as well as a Scottish style castle surrounded by one of the finest gardens in Ireland.
Malin Head is the most northerly point of the island of Ireland. The area is renowned for epic coastal scenery, thriving birdlife and plenty of historical significance. There are more ocean liners and German U-boats sunk off this stretch than anywhere else in the world. In more recent years, thanks to a peak in the sun’s activity the Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis are being spotted off the coast so maybe you’ll be in luck when you visit.
At 751 metres, Errigal is the highest mountain in Donegal and its majestic glittering quartzite peak dominates the northwest corner of Ireland. For many, it is one of the most beautiful mountains in the country and is certainly among the most climbed.
Slieve League is one of the highest sea cliffs in Europe standing at 601 metres. Although less famous than the Cliffs of Moher, Slieve League’s cliffs reach almost three times higher. It is one of Donegal’s top attractions and is a must when touring the North West.
