Christian Motorcyclist Association had an amazing and blessed weekend at Aeas. The place is run and owned by Leon and Jillean. It is very clean. It is a B&B/hostel. Very nice full Irish. Evening...

“Perfect hostel!”

Rating: 5 Reviewed on January 24, 2020

I stayed in Aras Ghleann Cholm Cille for two nights in January 2020. I thought it was terrific, closer to a hotel than a hostel in some respects. The room was a good size, with an ensuite, both very...

“A Backpackers”

Rating: 3 Reviewed on November 13, 2019

From the Donegal Town by-pass, follow the signs for Killybegs
Continue on this road, past Mount Charles, Dunkineely and Bruckless, and you will arrive in Killybegs after
travelling about 16 miles.
(There are a couple of routes through Killybegs, but the best way is to turn right at the new Health
Centre/Pharmacy. When you see the sea immediately on your left, take the first available right turn).
The signs you need to follow from Killybegs are for Kilcar (Cilll Chartha) Carrick (An Carraig) and
Glencolumbkille (Gleann Cholm Cille).
Leaving the town up a steep hill, traverse a roundabout, following the sign for Cill Chartha. Stay on the
Carrick/Glencolumbkille road for about a further 6 miles, and after Kilcar (Cill Cartha) you will come to a T
junction. Turn right here.
3 miles further on you will reach the village of Carrick (An Carraig). Travel straight through the village,
turning neither left nor right. You will reach Glencolumbkille (Gleann Cholm Cille) after a further 6 miles.
Immediately upon entering Glencolumbkille, turn left at Biddys Bar (Teach Bhidí). Continue past the church
(On your right), and follow the coast road out of the village. Continue well beyond the folk village (On your
left) , up another steep hill, following a cliff-top road until you reach The Glencolumbkille Hotel (On your
right about 3 miles from the village)
You will see our building just below the hotel.
