Aras Ghleann Cholm Cille
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Am late with my reviews - I visited Aras last March. I found this to be a real "Traveler's Rest" type of place - simple rooms, a large & warm kitchen/common room with a fire and beautiful views, and friendly, accessible hosts Paul and Sharon who have a wealth of knowledge about their area.
I opted for B&B, and used the kitchen to prepare evening meals. Their served breakfast was good, the coffee the best I've had on the island of Ireland :)

Stayed: March 2012, traveled solo

you stayed at the hotel, the rooms are really cosy, the house is beautifull, as it was halloween it was decorated, the facilities are great, we were suppose to leave in the morning but as we had a flat tyre, we ended up waiting in the lounge for over 5h. free internet and free wifi. the owner is really great, and advised us where to visit( no need for tourism information as he s one in himself) really friendly and really helpful. would recommend it.it s the place to stay for couple, friends and family.

Overall it was a nice B & B. Paul was very friendly and had good advice on what to see. The main socializing/kitchen/sitting area was very nice. Wifi worked well. The morning breakfast was good...not huge but ok. Our room was alright..bed was a bit too old for my taste...borrowed extra bedding from another room to pad the mattress. That helped. Our bathroom was big..next door. It kind of seemed like they used it while people were'nt there...personal shaving suff in there etc. Kind of creeped me out. Very quiet location...lots to see nearby. Wonderful mill down the road...cool standing stones scattered about town. Awesome secluded beach.

We stayed at the hostel with four people and had more than just a great time there. The place is very quiet, so there are no cars or trains that could wake you up in the morning. The rooms were clean and very neatly arranged, the kitchen was clean as well and tidy and it was fun to cook there. We didn't have the available breakfast, it looked very good though! ;)
Unfortunately our car was broken down when we wanted to leave the place in the morning, but the host did everything to get it running again (thanks again!). And people who look for the beauty of nature: here you're right!

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
