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

Mount Errigal is a beautiful mountain, and it is a must do climb. The one thing I would say is be prepared to get wet. It rained a couple of times while we were climbing. At the start we waited in the car for a heavy rain storm to pass. Eventually we started climbing, it is a challenge - But... More

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
