Later, we visit the splendid Glenveagh National Park and Castle – this 14,000-hectare estate is considered by many to be Ireland’s finest national park. The core of the park is the Glenveagh Estate, originally the home of the notorious landlord John George Adair, much despised for his eviction of Irish tenant farmers in 1861. He built the castle in the 1870’s. From 1937 to 1983, the estate prospered under the stewardship of Henry McIlhenny, a distinguished Philadelphia art historian who restored the baronial castle and planted gardens full of exotic species of flowers and shrubs. McIlhenny subsequently gave Glenveagh to the Irish nation for use as a public park, and today the fairy-tale setting includes woodlands, herds of red deer, alpine gardens, a sylvan lake, and the highest mountain in Donegal, Mount Errigal. Wild and rugged, County Donegal is associated with the ancient kingdom of Ulster. It is one of few locations where the native Irish tongue, Gaelic, is spoken.
