“Amazing grace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you're looking for peace, solitude and simplicity with cosiness plus stupendous views, exhilarating walks up to Europe's highest sea cliffs and delicious breakfasts provided by friendly and helpful hosts (though you can also self-cater) and all at amazing prices, this place is for you!

Amazing place, far superior to some hotels we have stayed in. Beautiful location, rooms with lovely views and large en suites. Breakfast was perfect every day and the hosts, Paul and Sharon are wonderful. This is the first holiday we have had that we felt compelled to write a review as the Aras deserves any success it gets. Thank you!

We were two adults with two kids ages 3 and 6 year old kids and booked a family room with a double bed and bunk beds. It was our first time staying in a hostle. Our room was spotlessly clean with a lovely ensuite bathroom and TV which was great. Aras far surpassed our expectations. The kitchens were easy to use and having the option of self catering with everything you might need at hand was such a blessing. The family and staff could not do enough for us. The owner runs a free shuttle bus back to the town for anyone who wants to experience the local music and pub scene. We paid extra for cooked breakfast which was brilliant. The area is just so beautiful and we cannot wait to go back. I will stay there for sure the next time we go. Thank you so much to everyone at Ghleann Aras .... see you next year. xx Aideen xx

We stayed in a different hostel the two nights before which was really dirty and cold. Then when we came to this place, this was like paradise. Wifi everywhere, great kitchen, nice rooms, I dont know where to start picking around.

If you look for a nice and quiet base in the wild west of donegal, come here.

Although a bit out of the way, an excellent hostel. The two major pluses for me were wi-fi throughout the premises and the common kitchen. On the minus side I tried following the driving directions from the website and could not find any of the named roads. Overall, definitely recommended for unbelievable hospitality. Sharon and Paul made us feel like we were part of their family.

We spent a long weekend here recently and would whole heartedly recommend it to any type of traveller. Sharon and Paul are extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and the cooked breakfast is as good as any hotel we've stayed at. The self catering facilities are also kept clean and tidy. By far the best value accommodation we've ever found.

Thanks for your hospitality folks, hope to be back again!
