For the second night, my dad and I are going to be staying at the Errigal Hostel, which is one of the hostels I’m most looking forward to. It sits right under probably one of the most famous mountains in Ireland, Mount Errigal. It’s in a nice rural area far away from basically everything which is what I’m going to most enjoy. Also that day we’re going to be exploring the Inishowen Peninsula and doing a sizeable few hour drive up from Slane [near Dublin].
Here’s the Hostel’s description:
Situated amongst the misty hills of Dunlewey, North Donegal, Ireland. Errigal Hostel has been sheltering hill walkers, photographers, bikers and hikers for over forty years. The lure of Errigal mountain with it’s 100% panoramic views of northwest Donegal will surely delight the novice as well as the experienced climber. The infamous Poisoned Glen with it’s resident ghost ‘The Green Lady’ should also keep those intrepid ghost hunters on their toes!
The hostel is a prime location from which to discover the northwest Donegal area. From here you can visit the Glenveagh national park with it’s castle and Italian gardens, or take a stroll along one of the many white sandy beaches of the Donegal coast. The nearest town of Bunbeg contains many a traditional pub where you can listen to an Irish music session while savouring a drop or two of the black stuff
