I walk up Errigal with two dogs (a golden Labrador and a Collie) at least once a month if possible. Absolutely fantastic walk in all weathers! the view from the top on a clear day is spectacular! make sure to wrap up warm and/or take dry clothes to change into when you get back down.

My 14 year old son and I climbed Errigal at the end of October. It was an enjoyable day once you get past the bog at the start. Views from the top were breathtaking. We will be back in the summer.

Fog and fairly heavy rain prevented us from climbing very far, but we did enjoy half a mile out and in, and in particular seeing what Irish bogs were really like. One aspect we learned about -- “Bog butter”, a butter that has been buried in a bog. The Irish Times describes it as a “creamy white dairy product, which... More

A picture postcard that you drive through, one beautiful, timeless place. When you drive there, the roads are clear of congestion and you can breath. A great place to fee free and relax in nature. CR

Only my 4th hike but this was a challenge. Very boggy and marshy at the foot and shingle/rocks at the top. Just be careful coming down. Great views from the top.

Take the drive tour, or stop and climb, absolutely fantastic views. Safety first on the climb, it's easy going, but narrow at the top, but worth it!
