Exceptional. Would recomend to anyone who wants to get out of the city life.


This is place is perfect if you want to see the wild part of ireland. The owner drives you whererever you want. Nice place to go !


If you're looking for comfortable and welcoming accommodation in a remote and beautiful area this is it. We were late arriving and late for breakfast as we caught up on sleep and it didn't matter. We were looked after and put at ease and able to relax and chat for the morning over numerous cups of tea. We'll look forward to returning soon.

Great Hostel, pretty secluded though (not a bad thing at all because it is in such a fantastic area) but you probably want to have a car to get there. would definitely recommend


The place of the hostel is difficult to find, but the view is beautiful! If you want calm to stay is the place! It's nice to stay there if you want to climb or view the Slieve League!!! The personnel was very sympatic and said to you where you need to go!


These small hostels are the best. Very home-like feel and super friendly owners. It's a nice break from the backpacking party scene. Good for couples. No complaints what so ever. Helpful and friendly staff gave us lots of tips and advice as they know the area quite well. Thanks!


We had some difficulty finding the place using the SatNav (plus it was dark!) but following Google Maps worked fine. Great brekky for the extra 5 euros-well worth it. It's a bit out of the way from Donegal but we were glad we went, especially for the nearby cliffs, well worth the extra trek!


Best Hostel I´ve been so far in Irland! r

Excellent and prehaps the best place to stay at Ghleann Cholm Cille. Nice and friendly hosts, useful advices to visit the place. Out of the village, but possible to have a drink in the pubs of the village thanks the availability of the hosts. Nice equipements, comfortable, clean and ensuite bedrooms, price very law for a B&B more than an hostel. Definitly the best B&B I've ever been.


We had an amazing time here! The hosts were absolutely lovely and the hostel beautiful. Spacious bedrooms at an extremely affordable price, a beautiful kitchen for cooking - and the hosts even provide free shuttle services ! There's a beautiful beach 4km away that I highly recommend. Most welcoming, clean, and comfortable hostel I've ever been in


I would wholeheartedly recommend a stay at this hostel. You won't find two more generous ad helpful owner/hosts anywhere in Ireland.


A beautiful location for a lovely stay at this hostel; the staff were very helpful and kind.
