The stunning local beaches are only minutes away and ideal for swimming, fishing and surfing. Some of which present a fantastic viewing point for the Aurora Borealis/ Northern lights.

The original building built in 1810 has been home to many ventures and industries for over 180 years. Tullyarvan Mill including the hostel is now a not-for-profit organisation and a registered charity so it's nice to know that when you stay you are also making a direct contribution to the local community too!

    I stayed here for one night on my trip. For me everything was perfect. This is a hostel how it should be. A nice place to sleep without any unnecessary luxury, good value for money and clean. The only little disadvantage was, that the hostel was located on the "wrong" side of the river, so it took a little bit longer to reach the town centre. But this is nothing the hostel has an influence on, so 100% from me for this hostel.
