Just back from a weekend of hillwalking with a group of 13. The hostel catered for us all and all our needs. The owner was very welcoming and was on hand if needed. The hostel was full to capacity and still everyone was able to use kitchen and all facilities. Rooms and beds were warm and clean. This is an... More

We had a great stay here. Or room was clean, private and comfortable. The staff were very accommodating even driving us down to the village so that we could both have a pint. Everyone else staying here was very friendly as well.

Hiking Slieve league was perhaps the most scenic hike I have ever done. Incredible. The B&B set us up with a map, were so friendly and made the experience extra special. I can't wait to return and explore the area further.

Very reasonably priced! Our second night at Aras... Was one of the best days of my life. Slieve league was spectacular and made the cliffs of moher look quite small and bland. Wish we had gone to Clare before donegal for that reason. The owner happened to be going near a good bar in the area and offered us a... More

We stayed here with our kids and sure did enjoy the stay. The owner had many recommendations for us of what to do during our stay. The kitchen is big enough and clean, the breakfast you can book additionally is a plus, too. We had a family room which wasn't very spacious, but clean and okay since we din't want... More

This place provides all you could wish for - clean, warm and comfortable rooms at a great price. The welcome from Paul was genuine and I immediately felt at home. Located in a stunning part of the country, there are plenty of walks on the doorstep and even in appalling weather it was enjoyable to get out and about. The... More

We came here with our walking club constisting of 30 member in the age range 25-50. Paul & Sharon were very helpfull in pre-arranging everything for the weekend from walks to figuring out the room allocations. The location is very handy for walks at Slieve League and Glenlough. The morning fry and diner were very good and plenty to keep... More

We did not have a sat navman and had trouble finding the hostel. However we were warmly welcomed with a cuppa. The place was clean and the bed comfortable . The only complaint I would make is the shower was not hot enough.

I've never felt so welcome at a hostel, pulling in after dark and booking late, Paul still made us feel like we were in a top B'n'B. Paul made sure we were comfortable and had all we needed before he left us with "pay in the morning, its fine!" And also "what time would you like breakfast?" We had a... More

Following a problem when booking, guests were particularly aggressive and contemptuous of us. we wanted to talk about the problem but the hosts are closed in us insulting. the reception is really negative, places are not the height, very bad quality / price ratio. has noted: no heating in the rooms. I do not recommend this place!

PaulOHare, Owner at Aras Ghleann Cholm Cille, responded to this review

A guest once said to us that he liked to see one or two bad reviews as proof that the good reviews alongside them are genuine. So I hope everyone can place this review in the context of our overwhelmingly positive performance on Trip Advisor and judge whether it is likely that this particular assessment of Aras Ghleann Cholm Cille...
