It was realy funny walk...so much mud...the way up and down was something like Spartan Race. I realy enjoyed it. But because of fog I didn't see nothing from peak.

We followed the R251 to Dunlewy from Letterkenny and turned off on to a minor road on the left signposted for The Poison Glen just before the village. This is where you will find the wonderful and picturesque Dunlewy Church ruin situated at the foot of Erigal. It was constructed from white marble and one can only imagine how magnificent... More

An easy and fun walk up a fine hill not blighted too much by poor weather. Describing the first 1/3rd of the walk as boggy is an understatement.... bog, glorious bog, wet wet wet.... there's no set route and thousands of feet have trampled ever more muddy paths through the vegetation. There seemed to be no advantage in ascending either... More

Climbed Mount Errigal with my boyfriend. We had hiking boots and sticks - not sure I would have made it up without them 😄 the bottom is very wet and boggy, without the right foot wear your feet would be wet in seconds. Really enjoyable climb, needed to take a few breaks but really enjoyed it. Gorgeous views!! Nice to... More

Climbed Errigal on a cloudy day. Thankfully, however the clouds did not come down on the mountain.Very mucky at the start before joining a scree path. It is steep but not too long. Takes about an hour up. The views from the top are simply stunning. Can see out across Donegal. Absolutely beautiful. A word of warning though-it was quite... More

I think I underestimated the height and the boggs... not used to that kind of terrain, coming from sunny Kuala Lumpur. But how can you compete with that view..? Worth the climb and I love the weather. I mean I am blessed that I could do the climb in the afternoon. It was breezy with the sun peeking out when... More

Strenuous climb to the top so bring poles, water and friend to encourage you. Once you get to the top, the views will take your breath away.

Wasnt expecting such a climb but was really good and rewarding when reached peak but views were unreal and made me realise why Ireland is one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
