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.

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

For the sake of the environment its best to start at the public car-park (there are several other routes, including the challenging NW ridge) ..a boggy start soon gives way to a 30 degree ridge walk, which may be windy but is very obvious, and the views from the top twin peaks are simply stunning. best done in late evening...

This hotel is not chique but welcomes you with a real feeling of comfort and easy, laid-back service. Not everyone's cup of tea but stonking value for money.

Was there during a period of snow - looked very impressive from Dunlewie village. The poison glen was also very pretty.

We spent 2 weeks renting a cottage at the foothill of Mount Errigal, a 35 minute drive from Letterkenny in May of 2013. To go from the green and lush Letterkenny to the rocky and barren Dunlewey was awe inspiring. You pass many peat bogs, which I have never seen. The roads are narrow, the mountains are gorgeous, and you... More

When you reach the summit of this wonderful mountain the view on a clear day it takes you breath. It can be tough going getting to the top but once there you don't want to leave.
