Fantastic, this hostel is at the foot of mount errigal, it's well worth a visit, we stayed in a family room, extremely clean with comfy beds, only thing about the general area of dunlewy is bring insect repellant as there are a lot of midges and horse flies in the summer.

I stayed here with some friends for one night recently. The hostel is clean, modern and well equipped. I had booked into the female dorm room and ended up having it all to myself. The view from the hostel over Errigal is stunning and perfect for checking conditions on the mountain before venturing up it! The best bit though were... More

The newly built Errigal Hostel feels bright, modern and clean. The room was a little bare, but was clean and tidy. There was some noise during the night from the corridor and from people using the toilet next door. The kitchen is well equipped and the dining area is very comfortable with great views north to Errigal or south to... More

It was first stay in a hostel for me, and I had a good experience. Staff was welcoming and helpful. Room (we had twin room for two people) was clean, bedlinnen was provided at check-in. The main point for me is: location. Many must see places are located next to it. Good for the price.

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at Errigal Hostel - cosy, friendly, clean, with everything provided that you could ask for, and the views and location are just amazing. Had such a lovely weekend we have booked to return in July.

Beautiful views in a comfortable Hostel await you at this little get-away. It is not a 5 star resort, but a clean and comfortable 4 bed per room hostel with shared bathrooms. My husband and I were lucky enough to stay here in the off season, and were the only ones in the hostel, so had a room to ourselves.... More

I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights and it is probably the best hostel I have stayed at ever. The whole thing looks pretty new are at least recently renovated. It is a nice anchor point if you are planning to tackle Mount Errigal and there is a small shop and a petrol station just next to the hostel.... More

Excellent hostel for hikers/nature lovers. Very friendly staff. Clean rooms, kitchen and toilets. One of the best self-catering kitchens of hostels I have been. Basic but clean, warm and big showers. There is a nice little pub 200m away. Mount Errigal requires 3.5km walking from the hostel on tarmac before you actually climb it. The problem is getting there by... More
