Stayed here a week and though weather was very disappointing the hostel is great and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The only suggestions I have are 1) a few more books to read in English in the snug please and 2) please put big notices beside all the red cords in ensuite shower rooms saying "for emergencies only,...

My friend wanted to show me how beautiful Donegal was and had to really persuade me to come along with her to stay in this hostel as I am normally used to staying in hotels BUT I was pleasantly surprised! Staff were very friendly. Checked into a private twin room with en-suite. Beds and pillows very comfortable. The view from... More

Great welcome. Really clean with great facilities. So well heated we had to open the window at night with snow on Earagail outside the window! Loads of facilities. Massive common room and lovely cost snug.

My mum and 2 sisters stayed here (all 3 in late 50's). It was their first hostel experience which they loved. It was great value, with superb views. All staff members were very helpful. In a very rural location Perfect for those wanting to explore glen veagh sites etc

Located in the best possible place for hiking and walking, it's an incredibly beautiful place. The hostel staff were helpful and friendly, and the common areas were spacious and comfy. The beds are not the most comfortable, and the breakfast a bit bland, though at that price who cares! A really good experience.

The hostel is in a gorgeous area and the views are outstanding. The rooms are nice and well cleaned, beds are really comfortably and the duvet is nice and warm. However, for what we paid I didn't think it was good value for money. We paid £250 for 6 days and it was a very basic room. We paid to... More

Hi Jwray93, Thank you for staying with us in Dunlewey and for taking the time to leave us a review. We were aware that there was problems with the showers during August. We hope to have a new system in place over the low season. We hope that you will come back next year and check us out again. More

Great location just at the foot of errigal, and only a mile or two from the car park where you can start the climb. The facilities in this modern hostel are perfect, and there is a drying room where you can put your sodden outdoor wear, a must in this part of the world.!! Staff are friendly and have great...

Traveled up here for one night in July 2016 to visit my son who was in Colaiste Na Phiarisigh(right next door). Perfect place to just put your head down(Good Standard for Hostel). Local hotel is normally reasonable but while Gaeltacht courses are on they over double the price of there rooms. Dunlewey is a beautiful place. The staff were helpful... More

The Errigal Hostel is a great place from which to tour the beautiful surroundings. The magnificent Errigal itself is right out the window, and the roads to the National Park and coastal sights are very good for cycling. The hostel is clean and modern, with great showers and toilet facilities. The kitchen has large refrigerators and a big restaurant-scale gas... More

I booked an overnight stay for 33 Bikers from BBB motorcycle club in June this year. Really good value. We stayed B&B + evening meal. The Hostel was spotlessly clean and centrally located in a beautiful part of Donegal ideal for touring. We had an amazing home cooked roast dinner in the evening and a wonderful cooked breakfast in the... More
