Not sure if it's the mountain or the hotel I'm reviewing. Both are unique in their own way...grammar might be a bit shaky but you'll know what I mean

If the weather is right,the climb is a must.Be prepared for a wet slog at the start to get to the base of the summit,but once there it's a matter of a quick hard climb up a rocky slope to the top.TYhe views

Incredibly scenic part of Co. Donegal. The drive from Letterkenny takes you along a mountain road with Mount Errigal on one side and the beautiful lake at Dunlewy on the other. Superb visitor centre at Dunlewy with an excellent homely cafe/restaurant.

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
