Glenveagh National Park in the Derryveagh Mountains is the jewel in the crown of Donegal Tourism. This magnificent park lies just to the north of Churchill contains 14,000 hectares of lakes, mountains, raised bogland and woodland.  

The golden eagle has been reintroduced into the park in recent years. Other birds that can be seen include grouse, ravens, redstarts, stonechats and wood warblers. The park has the largest herd of red deer in Ireland and also features foxes, badgers, hares and stoats. The 19th century Glenveagh Castle on the shores of Lough Veagh  is open to the public throughout the tourist season.
