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!

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...

Arrived with four other friends in Glencolumbkille, they collected us at the bus station, and took us at the hostel. Rooms are clean and comfy, we slept really well :) and Paul, the owner, drove us both to the pub in the evening and to the Slieve league the morning after, for free! He's really kind, a nice person!

Very friendly, comfortable and reasonably priced hostel... perfect for hikers... great breakfast too ! Paul is happy to give lifts to the base of the cliffs for climbers, but more than that, he is happy to ferry you to the local pub and home later, if you want a bit of craic too. Great atmosphere .

I am traveling throughout Europe and the United Kingdom, including the Republic of Ireland and Ireland. I have not had nor have taken the time to review any where I have stayed. However, I just stayed at Aras Ghleann Cholm Cille and there was no way I wasn't going to take the time to give them the awesome review they... More

Our room was basic, three small beds and a shower/toilet. The door was broken so only locked with a tiny padlock, but it being so rural it wasn't really a concern. The common area was nice and spacious, not that well laid out though as all of the long tables were kind of smashed together, and the area was dominated... More

Nice place to visit, Paul showed us where to go and what to see. He provided us an early Breakfast. Because of his advise we saw the most amazing places. If you are into mountains, this is the place to visit and you won't find a better place to stay. Will definitely stay again.

A friendly, clean, comfortable place to stay when visiting the west coast of County Donegal. The price was right and Paul (the owner) gave great advise about what to see while we were there. He also helped with finding us a power adapter to charge our laptop. Good breakfast and fun to talk with others staying at this B&B. Be... More

From Kerry early in the morning and greeted with a warm welcome at the hostel, no mobile coverage so ring home a couple of miles before arrival. My buddy and I were driven to the village by the owner for the best pint of Guinness ever had. Comfortable stay friendly and clean.

Nine of us (about half senior citizens) from a little hill walking group spent a night at Aras Gleann Cholm Cille at the end of September. We found it to be welcoming, homely, warm, clean and comfortable. Everyone really enjoyed the breakfast and we got off to a very good early start to our day. We parked at Port and... More
