Property Description

Errigal Youth Hostel is nestled beneath Mt. Errigal in the lakeside village of Dunlewey in Donegal. It is on the Wild Atlantic Way and is a 20 minute drive from Donegal airport and 30 minutes from Letterkenny.
The hostel has been part of the Gaeltacht community for 45 years but it has been transformed with a modern build to provide young people with a comfortable place to stay and a safe base from which to explore the many walks, trails, hikes and climbs that the Glenveagh National Park offers.
Visitors stay in modern mezzanine style dorms or luxury private rooms. The floor length windows invite early risers to watch the sun rise over the mountains while the cosy snug is perfect for relaxing in the evenings.
Affiliated with Hostelling International and an Eco-Flower winner, the hostel has an ethos of sustainability and recycling which lessens the impact of travel on this untouched environment. Friendly bi-lingual staff are experts on the locality and can recommend the best activity providers who play in the National Park. They can also help If you want to travel on to the rest of the hostels around Ireland in the network.

Latest Review

" Excellent location close to coast route, good walking and big mountains, and shop. Clean, modern building of a high standard. Basic breakfast should be enough for most people's needs. Wi-fi weak as in poor broadband area. Heating poor in rooms, only coming on shortly before we left in the morning. Plenty of room inside and outside. Stunning view of Errigal mountain from dining area. "
