    This is one of the best stays I’ve had in Ireland. The owners are the kindest souls and make you feel like family. I love that this location is a bit outside of town as you are surrounded by green & natural beauty. Plus, there’s a gorgeous little walk you can take past the meadow and the water bank to get into town, as opposed to walking on the road. My room was very clean and comfortable. Absolute perfection and I can’t wait to come back.

    I truly enjoyed my time at the Donegal Town Independent Hostel. It's a lovely place to explore. The hostel is in a great location near walking paths and restaurants. Linda is a wonderful host! She made sure I was comfortable and the house was warm enough for her guests. I enjoyed chatting with her in the evenings by her fireplace in the common room. She has lovely stories to tell. The hostel is set up very nicely with everything you'll needed. I look forward to coming back in the future!

    I had a great stay. Very welcoming place, with a dorm option as well as private rooms. Lovely lounge with a fireplace. Limited numbers and much additional cleaning make it all Covid safe. As a budget traveller I appreciated the self catering kitchen. Bed comfortable, shower good, wifi fast. Would definitely stay again.

    A warm welcome was had when I arrived. The room I had, a single on suite was clean and pleasant. The hostel is within walking distance to the centre of town. Or you can take the riverside walk which talks into the centre of town, a little longer, bit worth it.
