Super nice staff and a very relaxed atmosphere makes Rougey Lodge a really great place to stay. Superb location and a great price, close to both the surf and the pleasant town of Bundoran. Ideal place to go if heading up for a surf trip with some friends. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to spending a weekend in Donegal!

A pleasant hostel on the main thoroughfare of Bundoran. Close to the sea, restaurants and night life. Works in conjunction with surf world next door so great rates available on surf packages! Friendly staff and rooms are in good order but a lot of the hostel needs painted and some minor repair work.

This was a simple, nice place to stay. It was very clean. The common area was very comfortable and the kitchen was wonderful. They offer surf lessons, bike rentals, etc. on-site and have a lot of knowledge of the area around Bundoran. The staff was both kind and diligent. There is rather a social atmosphere, so it was a nice... More

Rougey lodge is just like staying with friends. The hostel is on the main street of town and only a few minutes walk to anywhere. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the staff are friendly and helpful and always around if you need to ask anything. As a travel writer myself, not many hostels blow me away. ROUGEY DID....

We were here in may, the stuff was friendly, just the kitchen was a bit dirty. If you aren't surfers there is nothing really to do here and it is pretty boring because Bandoren doesn't really has a town center and there is a lot of golf links around...

Had a great time staying in Rougey Lodge. We used it as a base for our surf trip and it's an ideal location to get to the waves. We ended up having the place pretty much to ourselves for the week, but even when there were loads of guests the staff kept the place really clean and tidy. We're already... More

We spend the week-end in Rougey Lodge with 50 people of my school. Thanks to the people, we had an amazing stay, I highly recommend the place. First the city is beautiful, the rooms are very clean and the people very welcoming. We could not expect better stay. Big thanks for the people from Rougey Lodge.
