Glenevin Waterfall Park

Glenevin Waterfall Park

Where better to start than right next door to The Glen House at one of Inishowen’s most spectacular natural attractions.

The walkway from the gardens of The Glen House takes you upstream along the meandering stream to Glenevin Waterfall.

Along the way there are a number of picnic areas and vantage pionts with stunning views of the surrounding coast and countryside.
