  • Highest Mountain in Donegal. Not too difficult to climb by following the well beaten track. Will go again sometime as cloud cover blocked the view from the top đŸ˜¢. Tricky descent as the scree moves underfoot. A decent walking pole/stick will come in handy.
  • Beautiful mountain and with good weather if will follow you for miles around north west Donegal. Didn't climb it but the Errigal wayward walk was stunning, even in wild conditions.
  • Great hike if you are ever in Co. Donegal. It's the Co.'s highest peak. There is a parking lot, but not a blazed trail. There is a lot of mud near the beginning of the hike due to the amount of visitors, and rain.
  • A great climb. Not too hard.
  • Great morning walk great weather see for miles

Where to stay in Letterkenny

The favorite form of lodging in Letterkenny is the bed and breakfast, complete with hearty home-cooked meals. The very center of town can be quite noisy at night, so if this bothers you, consider staying a few minutes from the heart of Letterkenny. Most lodging options--which include guesthouses and hotels in addition to bed and breakfasts--lie within walking distance of the city center, so you won't be far from any sights. The real reason for stopping in this town is to see the rest of Donegal, so any basic accommodations will do as a jumping off point.
