Historical Traveler Reviews Mount Errigal Hotel Letterkenny
The Mount Errigal Hotel in Letterkenny is by far one of the best hotels I have stayed in in a long while. The hotel is rated 3 stars which is very surprising when you see the facilities, the decor, the quality of the food in the restaurant and above all the service. The whole experience was a joy from the time we checked in to when we regrettably had to leave. The Cafe Renaissance bar in the hotel is something like you would see on Dawson Street in Dublin. The sea food in the restaurant was unbelievable and Id recommend the monkfish. I will be back again and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone that visits Donegal.
Lacked atmosphere, poor food
My husband and I recently stayed in the Mount Errigal Hotel in Letterkenny for a weekend. While we really enjoyed visiting Letterkenny and would heartily recommend it as a place to visit, we were sorry we chose to stay in the Mount Errigal. We did not realise that there was so many other hotels to stay in in Letterkenny. For a start, the Mount Errigal was half an hour's walk from the town centre. The rooms were very plain but where we were really disappointed was with the poor service and manner of the staff nearly everywhere from checking in until the time we left. I don't like to criticise but I have to say the food in the restaurant where we ate on the Saturday night was really very poor. My main course came out cold and when I complained the attitude of the person serving me was very unfriendly. We will return to Letterkenny but will stay in a different hotel next time.
Great Place to stay
My husband and I have been going to this hotel twice a year for many years now and would recommend it to anyone, the food, the staff and the facilities at the hotel are excellent. We are going back in February 2005 and looking forward to seeing the refurbishments that have been done.
Not up to standard.
Along with my husband whose roots are in Donegal, we spent three nights at this hotel and I am really reluctant to express how poor we found it to be.
We chose Letterkenny because we had to visit Ramelton and it is quite a large town anyway so it suited us. We were disappointed with the hotel location a mile from the town centre but that was really the least of our concerns. Although recently refurbished, it lacked atmosphere and is quite a dreary place. Our room was poor and the food was very ordinary. As for room service, it was just unheard of. We asked to speak to the owner / manager to express our disappointment but found him to totally unreceptive to our comments and his attitude was in fact most disappointing of all.
I do not know if or when we might be back in Letterkenny - a very nice town in fact with good stores and lovely people - but I know for sure we will not be back in this hotel. Sorry Mount Errigal.
I have just returned from a wonderful holiday in County Donegal with my wife and 2 young children. We stayed in the Mount Errigal Hotel in Letterkenny for a week and really loved it. The hotel is beautiful and really comfortable. The bedrooms are large and bright with plenty of space for the children. We all enjoyed the Leisure Centre, the swimming pool is a great size and there even is a separate kids' pool. The food in the restaurant is excellent and we were able to enjoy lovely dinners from an impressive a la carte menu. The food in the bar was also very good with loads of choice, both for us and the children. The Mount Errigal is also in an ideal location to travel to some beautiful beaches and we had a brilliant time although the weather wasn't great. The staff were extremely helpful and even organised day trips for us. Moreover, we had never been to Donegal and found it really good value for money. We would definitely recommend the Mount Errigal Hotel to anyone looking for first class service and comfort but that still appreciate the warmth and friendliness of a family run hotel
We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Donegal. We began our holiday in Letterkenny staying two nights there in the Mount Errigal. It has just been extended and renovated but unfortunately we found it quite ordinary and were not impressed. The rooms are okay and the food just okay too. Having read some of your reviews we expected more. The location is not great either as it is a mile from the town centre.
We spent a week touring around staying in some excellent small hotels and when we spent our last two nights in Letterkenny, I'm afraid we did not return the Mount Errigal. Sorry.
Stayed for a week and it was wonderful and the staff couldn't do enough for you .looking forward to my next visit
We stayed in the Mount Errigal in August 2003. The hotel is first rate, the staff were all incrediably friendly and helpful,which was reassuring when you are travelling alone with a child. Letterkenny is an ideal base to explore the beautiful county of Donegal. We are visiting again in 2004.
I stayed in the Mount Errigal last month with my family and I thought it was fab!Letterkenny is a delightful place with some lovely places to eat like Subway Sandwich Bar and the Lemon Tree

The destination today is a little village called Ramelton. Its near the Northern Island/UK border and the city of Londonderry. I am staying in a house found on airbnb. The drive takes about 3 hours. I stop off in a place called Letterkenny and walk around the high street and the main shopping mall before heading to my accommodation.

Beautiful but expensive but they did give us a complimentary Irish coffee. We then headed back into Donegal for lunch and a free afternoon to wonder around town. By this time the showers were getting more frequent. After a huge lunch at one of the hotels ...
