    Mountain Climbing on Errigal and other Derryveagh Mountains

    Errigal, Donegal's highest mountain peak, is one of the most popular climbs in Ireland. Even though Errigal is the highest peak in Donegal it is a relatively easy climb and the visitor will be rewarded with a panoramic view of the three neighbouring parishes on reaching the summit. Other popular mountain climbs include An Mhucais and Sliabh Sneachta. All mountains are potentially dangerous, so take care if you climb
