Great time with the kids at the Santa experience. Staff are amazing, very attentive & even had our breakfast ready early as our eldest daughter had to be back to sit an exam. We ate in the bar. The food was delicious and good value for money. We will definitely be back :-)

On a clear day the hike up to the summit is just fantastic!! And the views from the Summit spectacular!! The terrain is wet and boggy from the car park to the base of the mountain, then it is pretty rough and gravely from there to the top - sensible shoes are a must. If your fit climbing the mountain...

Great for a hike or simply to photograph and admire. It's an easy climb until near the top where it gets a bit steep. Surprisingly the peak is wide and not as one might expect from below so it's safe. The side that everyone hikes is of course the easy one. Good boots or heavy shoes are a must.

The area around Mount Errigal is some of the most beautiful countryside in all of Ireland. Free range sheep wandering the steep hillsides. The colors of the heather on the bogs. And totally quiet and peaceful.

Have climbed Errigal twice and never disappoints. View from the top on a clear day is incredible. Can be marshy on the way to the foot of the mountain but other than that it's great. Climb isn't the easiest but that makes reaching the top all the better. Take a camera for pictures of the views and water.

Despite the comments about the boggy start, we were able to find a fairly dry route direct from the car park. Once on the ridge, the route has some steepish sections with loose scree, but nothing too scary. Proper hiking boots are highly recommended, and hiking poles too, if you are unsteady. We had great views on the way up,... More

Good to see, in line with all other galleries. A place to ponder the moment and take a step into another world.

We have walked this mountain already a few times now, also with our teenage kids. The paths do not carry any signs, but the top is easy to find. We do think robust shoes, rain gear and something to eat and drink is recommandable. The view from the top is just fantastic!. On clear days you can see miles across... More
