Property Description

LIVING WITH COVID-19 in Ireland.
FROM THURSDAY 15th OCTOBER 2020 County Donegal has been downgraded to Level 5 until 10th November, 2020 along with Counties Monaghan and Cavan. Since Friday 25 September, the county of Donegal has been on Level 3 of the Plan for Living with COVID-19. These restrictions mean we cannot open.
This action is based on a review of the current public health advice and is in response to the deteriorating situation with the virus in Ireland and Northern Ireland
From the 6th October the rest of the country was moved to Level 3.
Donegal will be at Level 4 until the 10th November at which point the situation will be reviewed by the government, based on the status of the virus and public health advice.
Placing Donegal at Level 4 has the following implications for those  in Donegal
• people living in Donegal should remain in the county (that is, they must not leave Donegal to travel either domestically or internationally),
• people living outside of Donegal should not travel to Donegal, with the exception of those who must travel for work, education and other essential purposes. This situation now applies to all counties in Ireland

On the 29th June 2020 we reopened after being closed since 9th March 2020 due to Government Direction re Covid-19.

From June 29th we reduced our bed rooms capacity to 6 only to comply with Social Distancing requirements. The dormtiories were drastically reduced in capacity. We had no large group availability unless the small group is a family from the same household. Once we reached the limited capacity the hostel was closed to new guests calling etc.

We will comply with all the sanitisation directions for the safety of guests and ourselves.

Remember to check travel arrangements and Government Directions before booking accommodation..

    Great place. Very peaceful with an amazing view from the common room across the sea. The hostel is very quaint with a VCR and choice of VHS's and an old-style wood burner stove to keep warm. The owners are friendly and helpful although they are shielding so they keep themselves separate as much as possible. Well stocked kitchen, although no oven.

    I definitely chose the best stopover on the 'Inishowen 100' by bike in this well positioned hostel! I could recover peacefully and enjoy at any time this breathtaking view to the Atlantic from the living room and my bedroom. I really recommend this delightful hostel for any curious person and for all bike packers.

    I really enjoyed my stay here. I think that I also stayed a number of years ago. The surrounding area is really nice with plenty to see and good places to eat. I was very impressed by the measures taken for COVID 19, the best of any place I stayed in and that includes B&Bs. I will definitely be coming back, maybe end of Sept/October if open.

    What an amazing place to stay. The location is fantastic, right beside the sea. A great place to chill out & relax. Rodney is a mine of info on the area. My only regret is that my stay wasn't longer. Definitely plan to visit again. Amazing value for money.

    What an amazing place to stay.....no wonder people keep coming back. Million dollar view at a budget price..but with all you need to relax and be comfortable. Sit outside with a coffee and watch the view change with the tide....what more do you need. Ok you may need to share a room as its dorms not private rooms...but go outside busy times and you may have the place almost to yourself.
