This is a challenging hike with shale on one side of the mountain. Great views and you can drive most of it, so if yer feeling lazy you can still experience it

Have climbed Errigal many times and it is always worth it for the views one gets from its summit. Amazing Donegal scenery. Enough said, just do it; it's not a tough climb.

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.

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

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.

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
