Just back from a weekend at the Errigal which we booked at short notice, mainly because of the reviews here (our other option received awful reviews here so I cancelled).
Thankfully we weren't disappointed. The staff were friendly and efficient (special mention to those working in the restaurant on Saturday night - despite being incredibly busy they were attentive and did all they could for us and we were not kept waiting) and the bedroom was a good size and very clean. It's a shame that there is no swimming pool as the weather was atrocious and there wasn't much to do in the surrounding area, but that's a minor quibble. As for the food - breakfast was excellent, the bar food (as mentioned by others) is definitely overpriced and could benefit from some seasoning and fresh herbs/spices, and dinner in the restaurant was of a high standard.
Two pieces of advice tho: (1) do not use the hotel website directions - we got quite lost and it took us at least an extra hour to get there; and (2) book directly with the hotel by phone because otherwise there is an outrageous €15 credit card charge when booking online.
