Property Description

Situated on the Wild Atlantic Was as well as the International Appalachian Trail, our guests describe Aras as a ‘home away from home’. A short 5 minute drive takes you to the quaint little town of Glencolmcille (Glencolumbkille), and a 15 minute drive gets you to the world famous Slieve League Sea Cliffs, offering spectacular views or breath taking hiking. The famous Silver Strand Beach is also just a short 4 minute drive away.

We offer great value accommodation to suit your needs, whether that’s a family room for a week long break, a single room for a night, or a large group of up to 50 guests.

Pick from over 20 rooms, cozy up in our large self catering kitchen area with its own rustic fireplace, and kick your feet up in our large lounging area. Rather than the dormitory style rooms which may be available elsewhere in this price range, ours are private rooms and most are en-suite.

We do everything we can to ensure you get the most that Donegal has to offer; just ask us for one of our area and activity guides or drop us an email and we will email you some brochures for free so you can plan your trip before you arrive.

Free fibre wi-fi is available throughout the building and we also operate a free local shuttle service to/from the local pubs & restaurants, walk start and finish points, plus bus station.

As mentioned, a large and comfortable common area, plus a fully equipped modern self catering kitchen is available for use throughout your stay.

a Traditional Cooked Irish Breakfast is available on each morning of your stay for only €7 per person or a buffet breakfast for €5. View House Rules

    I had a great stay at Aras. The owners were very warm and welcoming. They were informative a bout all the places to stay & things to do in Donegal. They provided historical information also. Bicycles were provided at no extra cost. I was offered a free breakfast on my last day. My friend & I were given a lift to a local spot free! All in all a fab stay. I would reccomend to anyone & will not forget. Hope to get back there soon!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay here. Everywhere was spotless.,the ensuite room had a sea view and private exit., Leon and Gillian were super friendly and always on hand to help. We discovered new sights in the area thanks to Leon's expert knowledge. The facilities were first rate,with a large well equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge. We will definitely go back there and recommend it. Thanks Leon and Gill.

    Lovely smiling welcome from Leon and the team. Made us feel at home, explained the local area well, and even were able to give me some spare supplies I was missing when the shops had closed. V clean room and lovely hospitality welcoming us to stay and relax in the communal areas after we checked out while we had to do some research. Fantastic location on the edge of the world, with many beautiful and wonderful things to explore. Highly recommend Silver Strand.

    Excellent place to stay when visiting Sliabh Liag or surrounding area of Glencolumcille or Carrick. Set in a peaceful, tranquil setting. Very welcoming hosts and superb breakfast which is optional. Will stay here again when visiting South Donegal.

    We had a great stay here, Leon was brill at recommending walking routes etc. There is a great kitchen, well fitted out with equipment and utensils, spacious dining area and great space on first floor for relaxing with plenty of sofas and soft chairs. The bedroom was clean and tidy. We would recommend Aras Ghleann Cholm Cille for your stay, great location too.
