Mount Errigal Hotel Launches Christmas Party Nights with a Star Studded YouTube Hit!

In keeping with the Ice Bucket phenomena, the hotel decided to incorporate their own challenge into their YouTube video, where Danny O’Carroll & Benny the hotel’s Mascot dunked Carolynne & Johanne the party sales elves, however, little did Terry McEniff know (The hotel’s Managing Director) that he too was in for a drenching!!  Carolynne Harrison, the Sales & Marketing Manager, thought it would be funny to surprise him with the bucket of iced water at the end of the filming, she is delighted to say, she still managed to hang on to her job after the surprise!

With Donegal in the All Ireland Final, the hotel also managed to dupe Danny O’Carroll, the Dublin star, into partaking in the popular song ‘Jimmy’s winning matches’, the look on his face is priceless, I’m sure his Donegal born wife will be happy to see his support for her county!

Since the YouTube video went live, the combined views have reached almost 3000 hits.  This is great publicity for the hotel, says Carolynne Harrison, Sales & Marketing Manager, she said, we wanted to do something different and funny, we wanted to show our guests our personality, to give them a taste of what our party nights are all about and to show them that we are not the typical serious hoteliers that many perceive hoteliers to be, we are fun and we can laugh at ourselves!!

To view the video, visit the hotel’s YouTube channel

Danny O’Carroll mentions his own Charity event in the video, on the 5th December; we will have top celebrities from the world of sport, music and entertainment, joining the service staff to serve you on the night!  It is set to be a fabulous, star studded night with a 4 course dinner, wine & the best entertainment.

This year, the hotel welcomes back ABBA Reunion from London’s west end on the 12th & 13th December and the award winning Bentley Boys, 6 piece big band that will blow the roof off! The hotel’s party nights on the 12th, 13th, 19th and 20th will offer cocktails by the lobby fire, delicious 4 course meal to include their famous 10oz sirloin steak cooked on the Josper Grill.

The Christmas Events are all now on sale, many nights are already seeing hundreds of bookings, even before the brochures have been printed!  Call today (074 9122700)for more details or visit the website and go to the event calendar

We now have our own Mascot - Benny The Cheeky Monkey, who is known to make surprise visits during dinner and has celebrated many birthday's with the children.

The All In Family Package is from just €117 / £99 per night for a family of 4, this includes Dinner each night in our family dining area for all the family, breakfast each morning and full use of Pool & Kids Pool.
During school holidays, we have 'Kids Aqua Fun' in the pool daily and families can enjoy discounts from Arena 7's bowling, soft play area and laser tag!  Discounts are also available for the popular 'Lurgy Brack Fun Farm' which is just 5 minutes from the hotel.

The Mount Errigal hotel is within 5 minutes of the town centre shops and only a 20 minute drive from the beautiful Blue Flag Rathmullen Beach!

10 Top Tips for Packing your Suitcase!

The Mount Errigal Hotel Letterkenny has seen some super-duper packers and some seriously poor packers, we have seen men draped in suitcases and still having to make two or three trips to the car! The worst of it is, it probably wasn’t his doing it was probably the female companion!!!! So, we thought we would give you a little help!! 1. PLAN! Gather everything you think you will need and then put half of them back! 2. Get Rolling! You can roll knits, wools, cottons & jeans and they won’t wrinkle, always put rolled items on the bottom layer 3. Put the stiffer / folded items on the next layer 4. On top of the folded layer, put a dry plastic back, this will allow the folded items a little movement, just enough to avoid them being stuck in the one place to long and getting wrinkly! 5. Shoes, I know this is a bone of contention with the ladies however, how often have we taken ten pairs and only worn 2! You need a casual/comfy pair for daytime, trainers if you plan a bit of running and a dressy pair, that’s it, YES that’s it!!! You can do it! Step away from the shoe rack ;-) 6. Stuff shoes with your phone charger, sunglasses or small beauty products to maximise space 7. Get 8 clear containers and fill them only ¾’s with your products… the baggage part of the plane is highly pressurised… no one wants their bottle of Pepto-Bismal to explode on your perfectly packed clothes! 8. Put socks over your prickly brushes or rollers…. Snags are not hot! 9. Breakables, wrap them in sturdy clothing and put them in the middle of your suitcase 10. Don’t forget your toothbrush :-D, We hope this helps you… I wrote this, I know this and I still have a hubby with a sore back ;-) For details on great family offers this summer in Donegal, visit

Can we really trust online review sites?

Many of us now use famous review sites when making our decision to book or not to book a hotel. Review sites are now a huge part of the online spectrum, however - take some of what you read with a 'pinch' of salt! We agree, it is great to get constructive feedback in order to make things better for our guests, otherwise we would have no way of knowing how we can improve or where we could be going wrong! We encourage guests to speak to us before departure so that we can deal with the issues immediately. With most review sites, the poster is anonymous, which results in the hotel not being able to pin point the date, time or if it actually happened or not. Unfortunately for hoteliers and other businesses affected by review sites, some people are using these sites to 'blackmail' in order to gain financially. What they possibly don't realise is that this is a criminal offence and all review sites will take this type of fraud very seriously. It is great that the review sites have now acknowledged that people would attempt this type of fraud and have successfully put measures in place that allows hoteliers to report this and avoid any defamatory comments being made about their property because they did not agree to the financial request of the guest. It is very encouraging when a previous guest takes time out of their busy day to write a genuine review on their stay. As with all hotel's and products, everyone has different opinions and tastes so it is almost impossible to exceed everyone’s expectations on every level but we do try! Now, can I ask, how many reviews have you wrote yourself? I know that I always intend on writing a positive review after I've had a lovely stay, however, I am guilty of always intending but never actually sitting down and doing it! What we have found from experience is that the majority of the time, it is usually disgruntled customers who make the effort more than the customers who enjoyed their experience! Personally, our tip to you, is read the reviews and read a selection, from the selection you will get a fair picture.
