What people say

"You cant really go to Donegal without hiking up Mount Errigal. Errigal is one of Irelands ten highest peaks. A path has recently been put down making the climb a bit easier, but it is still quite a difficult climb. Sturdy hiking boots are a must as well as weather protection (coats, warm layers)."
"With 751-metre Errigal is the tallest peak in County Donegal and a beautiful hiking spot"
