This hostel is located at the foot of Mount Errigal, Donegal, with a beautiful view over a nearby Lough. We took some lovely walks around the area, took the bus one day to Glenveagh National Park and then cycled up the Wild Atlantic Way to catch the bus back to Dublin. We found this hostel by chance, but ended up...

We are a 48-member university choir from Pennsylvania, USA. We stayed for one night towards the end of our tour of Ireland, and we had a wonderful experience at the hostel. The reservation process was hassle free and everything was well organized upon our arrival (thanks, Sinead!) The hostel itself is clean, bright, and comfortable with plenty of communal space...

This was a great and economical place to stay in Donegal. The view and sites were just breathtaking. The staff couldn't do enough to help you and even came around and made suggestions. One bad weather day the gentleman on duty even took the time to teach us how to make Saint Bridget's crosses. The accommodations were excellent and the...

A first for us - seniors from France - in a youth hostel, actually with a majority of hill-climbing seniors as it was September! Great experience, in a double room, good breakfast included, good kitchen equipment, recycling and composting encouraged. Friendly staff. Wonderful surroundings to visit even if one doesn't hill-climb. The jazz festival at Dunfanaghy was a plus. Will...

Stayed here a week and though weather was very disappointing the hostel is great and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The only suggestions I have are 1) a few more books to read in English in the snug please and 2) please put big notices beside all the red cords in ensuite shower rooms saying "for emergencies only,...
