Fabulous views from top not too strenuous but not suitable for children. The scree is a bit difficult especially on the way down. Keep a look out for weather coming in and wind strength as the top isn't the place to bee when windy. Love...More

Visited in October so the weather was not the best. Drove to the mountain and looked at the base. The top was clouded so couldn’t see much! But there is a nice view from the base of a local lake.

Much of the area surrounding Mount regal includes impressive natural structure. Once or twice, one might erroneously wonder, "Oh is this or that Errigal?" until engaging the mother lode leaves no room for uncertainty. And that's another issue. It's so often capped in clouds of...More

Mount Errigal in Donegal is the ideal mountain in shape, and towers over a very beautiful valley. A must see!

Drove from Letterkenny to Glenveagh National Park on a fine sunny morning. Mount Errigal looked spectacular.

I loved seeing Mount Errigal as I toured the region. I mean, it stands out quite a bit, right? Like a third cousin of Croagh Patrick. It's a mystical presence -- beautiful.
