After a day of hiking, biking or walking – bike hire available, you can leave your gear in the Laundry room and drying room while you relax and watch the large plasma TV in the common room and you can cook up a storm in the fully-stocked self-catering kitchen too and sit and enjoy the views in the large dining room.
As this new 60 bed building recently had €3m invested in it, you’ll find it a most impressive state-of-the-art youth hostel! Some of the family rooms are built in a mezzanine fashion but there are also en-suite rooms with wheelchair access. You can choose from twin rooms, 4 bedded rooms and 6 bedded rooms with inspiring views overlooking the Poisoned Glen and out onto Errigal Mountain itself.
Errigal Hostel prides itself on being very environmentally friendly and green! It recently was awarded EU ECO Flower Label. The ECO “Flower” Label is a European environmental award given for commitment to sustainable tourism and protection of the local environment. The staff at Errigal Hostel, with the help of the An Óige Environmental Group, worked very hard to make sure the hostel met the strict criteria needed to achieve this prestigious award – so it’s proud to be GREEN!
