My wife and i found this wee piece of heaven, we were met by hens, geese and a friendly dog called Lucky. We met Shaun who owns and runs the hostel and camp site, we were made to feel at home so much so we stayed a second night. We will be back soon thank you Shaun.

Excellent hostel with wi-fi in common areas. The very friendly host, Shaun, is a wealth of information on local hikes, amenities and activities, and the location is extremely beautiful with hikes from the door. A car is helpful but not essential, good supermarket and pubs 3 km away in Kilcar.

On first impression the hostel is a little run down however the facilities were excellent and very clean. Electric hot shower and beautiful camp site, imaculately kept. The price was very good at €8 each per night. We really enjoyed the stay here and it felt rural, but had all the essentials just a short walk from the campsite. A... More

Arrived to camp here on 15th to a very warm welcome and a great price. The site had everything that you could possibly need right down to a hairdryer. Showers were free, unlike other sites, and were clean. Scenery was great too. Moved on to a site further south that charged more than double, additional cost for shower and had... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and felt really welcome thanks to the hospitality of the lovely owner Shaun. Lucky is the cutest tourguide ive ever seen and he happily lead us to the beach whenever we wanted. The kitchen was really well equipped and the board games available in the lounge were great fun too! Only little suggestion I would make... More

Upon late arrival we took to the camp site to set up our tents for the night, not long after we started Shaunarrived with Thomas to help us get up and going and with 36years experience he had our tent pitched in no time! He... More

Stayed here a couple of nights to see the cliffs at Slieve League. Shaun the owner is friendly and helpful. We had a great time. The kitchen is huge and fully stocked so cooking is a breeze. The property is an out in the country working farm with great views. Wifi could be a little stronger.

We spent six pleasant nights at Shaun's hostel. We had a family room all to ourselves that overlooks Teelin Bay, such a lovely view, with en suite bath. Shaun is a wonderful host and friend. I'll probably forget something I'd like to mention because there's so much. Shaun turns the heat on in his rooms. This is so important to... More

Shaun makes an excellent host and the hostel runs very efficiently. We were so glad to find such a charming place. We spoilt ourselves with a double room with its own bathroom. The kitchen was the gathering place for a wonderfully-mixed group of people from all over the world, and it was a pleasure to learn and be entertained at... More
