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.

Gotta say didnt expect to see this kind of hostel in Donegal, very spacious clean with modern facilities. The staff were very helpful, particularly considering they were booked out on the night I wanted to stay. The hostel is basically located at the base of mt.errigal, meaning the view is class and is in close proximity for hiking enthusiasts

A great hostel. Perfect base for exploring Donegal County as very centrally located for driving to localities. Especially well located for Mt Errigal, Poisoned Glen and Glenveagh National Park. Hostel itself has variable Wifi, but always able to reach in common rooms, unbeatable views of Mt Errigal from dining and common rooms, great staff, reasonably large private rooms with ensuite,...

We had a great stay in this lovely Hostel. Our twin bedroom was large and warm, we had an own bathroom which was clean and big enough. There were all necessary facilities available. We really liked the kitchen and the common area. It is a big and cosy room with large windows from where you can watch the sun going... More

A group of nearly 30 adults enjoyed the fantastic facilities at Errigal hostel. Simple, spotlessly clean accommodation, with option of twin/double room en suite or small dorm. Small snug living room is the perfect sanctuary for some quiet time or the dining and lounge area is at your disposal if you prefer to be sociable. The views of Errigal from... More
