Tallest mountain in the North, breath-taking views on approach, and even better, you can climb it for even better views in less than two hours. N.B. bring water, something to eat, and Cellphone or SatNav, just in case.

This mountain is in my backyard and I have to say I am disappointed to read that it's listed as Mount Errigall, Letterkenny. Unless it has recently moved, it is and has always proudly stood in Dunlewey, Gaoth Dobhair (Gweedore ), in a stunningly picturesque valley at the mouth of the Clady river, just before your eye follows the river...

Errigal is one of Irelands highest mountains, and while it's not the Alps, it has a very unique remote appearance, with the moors, and the heather, and the bogs. At one end we visited the Poison Glen,with it's eerie vacant roofless church, and at the other the Glebe House, which has a tour of it's many paintings and beautiful decor... More

The first part can be very muddy and wet, it seams an easy climb, but there are some steap parts near the top, not suitable for young children, its not a walk in the park. When you get to the top you will have great views, I really enjoyed it !

One day I will come back and climb you. I saw it from the road and that's what I said. Amazing views. You must make a point of seeing this big mountain.

I was here in May 2014. It was raining most of the time even during the day we hiked. We started in the morning and it was drizzling. The trail is easy and suitable for all even including young children. However, you just need to be extra careful when passing the rough terrain up the hill. It took about 2... More
