You can take a great hike to the top, with a clear route and good car parking available at the base of the mountain. Terrific scenic views from the top.

Very good accommodation, superb restaurant and very satisfying bar food. Close to the centre of Letterkenny and a great place to stay if you want to play golf on several nearby courses.

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.

Well worth it but please do wear walking boots as almost all were in trainers and one girl came down are foot!!!!! Seems... More

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
