We called on the off chance of finding a room for two nights that would accommodate a person with a wheel chair. A room was provided which was spacious and comfortable. The food was tasty and well cooked. Access around the hotel was excellent for the chair.

Beautiful mountain in the middle of nice valleys and lakes. It's worth doing it, even if the first part in the fields is wet ! Careful the wind approaching the summit, the saddles are very narrow,it might be dangerous, you never know where does come from the wind. It's better to have good shoes and hill-wlaking pools to climb it... More

Wide variety of bar food, burgers, steak, chicken and the prices are reasonable. The bar service was a bit slow but they seem to have a number of tasks as well as the bar. The staff were friendly. The 'country' music wasn't really to our taste but then again, it didn't take from the good food.

Mount Errigal sits in the middle of Gaeltacht Donegal. It is breath taking in all seasons and when you climb it on a good day, the views are just magical.

Very boggy at the lower stages so be prepared and would recommend walking sticks as much for coming down as going up. We weren't quick and it took us 1hr 20mins up and 1 he 10 down. Well worth it but please do wear walking boots as almost all were in trainers and one girl came down are foot!!!!! Seems... More

We didn't have the time to climb, but even at its feet it was beautiful. But the real discovery was the old Dunlewey Church, ruins between two lakes, in the middle of nowhere, a huge souvenir for all of us!

Mount Errigal is a beautiful mountain, and it is a must do climb. The one thing I would say is be prepared to get wet. It rained a couple of times while we were climbing. At the start we waited in the car for a heavy rain storm to pass. Eventually we started climbing, it is a challenge - But... More

You cannot fail to be impressed by Mt. Errigal it towers over the scenery around, the whole landscape is very dramatic. Bring a camera you won't be disappointed.

Just passing and called in for a drink and to have a look at a possible location for a weekend break. Staff very friendly and asnwered all queries willingly, even allowed us a sneak peek at the accommodation so we could see what was on offer! Location good - very central to Letterkenny and not too far from the lovely... More

In retrospect, most of my destinations in Ireland are not "reviewable;" they are experiential. Errigal is a mountain - in and around the lough, it comes out of the sky and it stands there. Big, large, rocky thing. That being said, it is a the soul of County Donegal. Resolute against the roiling skies lighting Gweedore, its face is infinitely... More
