  • A good place to visit in Letterkenny. Went there with my sisters last year and we have a lot of fun. Is a good hike.  more »
  • If you want lush, green and wild then this is the place for you. Make sure you pack some boots and a change of socks for the initial climb which can get very wet - in some places you might lose a boot...  more »
  • You havn't experienced the beauty of the donegal landscape till you've viewed it from the summit of Mount Errigal, make sure you wear good climbing footwear as the loose stones can be a bit slippy on ...  more »

  • Spectacular panoramic views on a clear day. Beautiful backdrop of blues and greens where rugged landscape and North Atlantic blue sea horizon meets a beautiful blue sky serenely diffused with intermittent wispy cloud...heavenly.
  • My favourite mountain climb with amazing views. You need Wallis for the bog and mud. Bring a change of cloths and shoes.
  • Great mountain to climb to. If the weather is good you can get spectacular views, be ready to get stunned :-) It takes around 45 to 60 minutes from the car park to the top. Maybe bit hard for less experienced people but definitely worth the effort.
  • Amazing hike. Very muddy at the lower part. Take high, waterproof shoes. On the day we hiked wind was very gusty, we had to stop multiple times and wait for the gust to stop. Very much recommend.
  • 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 😢. Tricky descent as the scree moves underfoot. A decent walking pole/stick will come in handy.
