In the North West of County Donegal lies one of the most stunning beautiful areas in Ireland. Glenveagh National Park is a real jewel in Irelands Emerald crown and attracts many visitors hoping to get away from the hectic pace of daily life and enjoy the picturesque rural landscape that abounds here. With many fantastic local places to stay, as well as pubs and restaurants in the area, it is the perfect place for a holiday for those looking to relax and unwind – remember to pack warm clothing such as aran sweaters and a sturdy pair of boots if you are hoping to explore the surrounding countryside.
Glenveagh national park is a real treasure of mountains, lakes and tumbling waterfalls. With miles of walking trails to suit a gentle stroll or a more brisk ramble, you will be delighted by the stunning sights that you find on your walk. As well as the scenery, the park is heavily involved in conservation and is home to the magnificent Golden Eagle.
The mountainous location is perfect for these beautiful birds and since 2001 huge efforts have been made to reintroduce the birds from Scotland to Ireland so keep your eyes peeled! Because the park is still a very wild habitat that is well protected and remains virtually untouched by man, there is a wide array of flora and fauna thriving in this National Park, and conservation of the environment remains of the highest importance here. From the foxes and badgers of the woodlands to the ravens and the plovers that next high in the clifftops, this is Ireland at it’s most wild and beautiful.
