This is a marvellous place to stay.Close to village and the folk village museum. Great craic in local pubs. Wonderful scenery and great coastal walks. The facilities are excellent.I had a single ensuit room. For 20 euros. The self service breakfast was substantial and only 5 euros. Really excellent value. There is also a comfortable lounge with good views.

Crazy about Aras Ghleann Cholm Cille. We've stayed here twice while traveling as a University Study Abroad. Dining and cooking with travelers (all ages and means) from around the world, getting a ride with Sharon to the grocery store, with Paul to Slieve League, a local driver to Killybegs or Ardara, hill walking or taking the cliffside walk into town,...

Do not hesitate to travel by bus. You see more and get in touch with all the people living in the neighbourhood. Paul anticipates every wish. It was the best place to stay on our 2-week-trip in Ireland.

A one night room only with en-suite for just 20 Euros (about £14) was a great bargain. You can if you want add a full cooked breakfast for a further 5 euros. Furthermore, as it was a Hostel you also had access to a fully equipped Kitchen to make your own meals. Paul was a very welcoming host and provided... More

To me this is a great place. The accommodation is wonderful. The host Paul is very welcoming. The breakfast is great. The location could not be better for those seeking a rugged remote location. What more can i say, even the internet is great. Wonderful stay.

The room was very comfortable, the fellow guests and hosts were very friendly. Paul very kindly gave us a lift on a couple of occasions - meaning we got to check out the majesty of the Slieve League cliffs. This is a great place.
