Excellent hostel with a beautiful local that allows easy access to the surrounding rugged beauty of the area. You could not wish for a better host than Paul the hostel owner. He is friendly, amenable, flexible and accommodating, always prepared to go that extra mile for all of his guests. I would have no hesitation in recommending or returning to Aras Ghleann Cholm Cille. Well done to Paul and his family. Paul Connor-Kearns

I absolutely loved my stay. The owners picked us up from the bus, ordered us food, drove 15 minutes to pick it up, cooked a delicious breakfast, drove us to the pub and picked us up, drove us to Slieve League, and drove us back to the bus when we left. Everyone was super friendly and they worked hard to make sure our stay was the best it could be. It is kind of far away but the views are amazing and worth the trip.


I loved this place, great hospitality, no complaints what so ever, highly recommend this hostel.


Well located and very friendly staff! The room with ensuite bathroom was clean and nicely done up. The kitchen was well equipped and we had a lot of space for cooking. The view from the Hostel is amazing!


This is a really nice guest house! We were just passing through for 1 night. The scenery in the area is fantastic and the staff were really helpful!
