We slept in pretty late today, then tried not to wake Ciaran who was sleeping in the lounge as we grabbed our guitars then went back up to our room and played for a while. After a while (and at a very decent time) we went and woke Darren, then went to sort out our washing. When we came back downstairs, Darren was gone, so we headed up the street to a little bakery where I got a sandwich and Daz got a chicken curry, then after we ate ...
... neighborhood, The Fountain, for a bit. We walked through looking at the few murals they had around the place, and saw how all the curbs and poles and things on the sidewalk were painted red white and blue. They had a statue of a man holding the keys to the walls which was supposed to represent freedom or something, and the whole neighborhood was surrounded by a huge 'peace' fence. Crazy. We went back up onto the wall and walked the rest of the way, then went inside the walled city ...
... which is 5 minutes from where we lived! We chatted with a Texan girl who wanted to move to Australia, and were talking about the pros and cons of a place like Geelong. The music finished up at about 1am, and the place started to close up, so we headed off down the street. We stopped at a place called Hillbillies for some takeaway chicken and chips (which was apparently the best chicken ever!) then walked back to Darren's place with the Texan girl, ...
Leaving the hostel I headed north, aiming to go round the Inishowen peninsula. Within a few miles I was buried in Muff, but passed straight through to stop in Moville, a small fishing village with great views across to Northern Ireland. Though by now I was further north than the north most point of NI. My inner bingo caller enjoyed the car park holding 'two fat ladies-large ice creams' and I and the bingo caller ...
... from Torr Road were AMAZING! Driving these roads was somewhat scary at times, narrowing down to one lane with little vision around corners! Road markings seemed to be only a guide as were the speed limits in both the UK and Ireland! This day we also realized that the speed limit in Northern Ireland went back to miles per hour as opposed to the kilometers per hour that was listed on our cars speedo. Luckily the GPS had the speed limits in mph although I wasn't going to ...

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.
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.
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.
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
