Burgers and steaks were good apart from the side orders. Onion ring were good. Drinks were fairly priced so no complainta but they did charge for ice if you wanted to take it to your room

bit of a sludgy trek up from the car park. There's actually another trail you can start from further up the road on the letterkenny side of the car park (near a bend in the road). Some of the locals actually climb it from the other side of the mountain, which doesn't have a clear trail, and is a bit... More

This is the tallest mountain in Donegal and should be approached with caution. If climbing in the summer take lots of insect repellent as the dreaded midges like to attack unwary tourists. The weather in Ireland is likely to change within a few hours and so wear the right gear as it is very cold on the top of the... More

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.

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
