Tullyarvan Mill Hostel Buncrana
We offer modern, comfortable and clean budget accommodation to tourists, holidaymakers and backpackers from all over the world.
This modern building (opened in 2006) is adjacent to the 19th Century corn mill situated next to the picturesque Crana River in County Donegal's second-largest town, Buncrana (Bun Cranncha).
With 51 cosy beds in total, we have two large, spacious dormitories and five family/mini-dormitories, all equipped with en-suite showers and toilet facilities.
We have a large self-catering kitchen with well-maintained amenities and an open dining area; alternately (and weather permitting), guests can dine alfresco in the Donegal air in our gardens on the banks of the Crana River. The communal room has comfy couches and is a great place to read, watch TV, make new friends or plan the next leg of your journey.
Ours is Inishowen's largest hostel. Our friendly, professional staff know how to make every traveller feel welcome with helpful information on local attractions and activities.
From here it's easy to explore the spectacular Inishowen Peninsula, home to 'The Inishowen 100' trail, which is rich and diverse in heritage, culture and natural archaeology. Stunning local beaches are only minutes away and are ideal for swimming, fishing and surfing. Sometimes you can even see the Aurora Borealis! We're just a 10-minute walk from the fun seaside town of Buncrana, where you can find shops and pubs with live music.
Our hostel is only a 45 minutes drive from Letterkenny and 20 minutes drive from Derry City (UK City of Culture 2013 and 2013 All-Ireland Fleadh,) both with regular transportation routes.
This original building was built in 1810 and has been home to many ventures and industries for over 180 years. Tullyarvan Mill, including the hostel, is now a not-for-profit organisation and a registered charity so it's nice to know that when you stay you're also making a direct contribution to the local community too!
