Our location in Glencolumbkille, South West Donegal, will lend visitors the perfect opportunity to visit highest sea cliffs in Europe, located a short 15 minute drive away at Slieve League.

This un-missable visitor attraction offers truly awesome views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Sligo Mountains and Donegal Bay as you approach the terrifyingly high top of Slieve League, where the cliff face of Bunglass rises nearly 2,000ft above the raging ocean. Read more

About Aras Ghleann Cholm Cille

Tucked into the rugged landscape of Southwest Donegal, Glencolumbkille has been a symbol of hope and success to other emigration-drained areas since the 1950s. Here, by valuing both tradition and innovation, a small community has maintained its cultural vitality.

Glencolumbkille is a joy to visit at any time of the year. Both shore and hills change dramatically with the seasons, heightening the attraction for the walker. At night some of Ireland's leading musicians play in quiet pubs and accomplished singers draw on an extensive repertoire of local song. Long after the bow is put away, when the dancing feet are still and the last song sung, you will remember Glencolumbkille. A place apart.

Accommodation Information

Adjacent to Slieve League with its breathtaking sea cliffs, Aras Ghleann Cholm Cille takes pride on offering excellent accommodation at an affordable price.

We have a variety of different accommodation packages available to suit your needs, and you will find our rates provide excellent value for money e.g.
1 night Self Catering – €20 per person
1 night Bed & Breakfast – €25 per person

Rather than the dormitory style rooms which may be available elsewhere in this price range, we have single, double/twin or family rooms available. All guests have access to a large and comfortable common area, plus a self catering kitchen with all modern amenities.

Location Information

Glencolumbkille is situated on the Slieve League Peninsula at the south-west point of Donegal - an area starting to be known as the Donegal Highlands. The area is bounded on the south by the mountains of Slieve League (Sliabh Liag) and Leahan and on the north by Slieve Tooey. To the west lies the restless Atlantic Ocean.

Glencolumbkille is a place of tremendous natural beauty and changing colors ... mountains, lakes, sea cliffs and beaches; a place of quiet roads, stone walls and fuchsia-bordered lanes. It is an ancient corner of Ireland witnessed by the sites of dwellings and the tombs of the Megalithic period and by the cross inscribed stones of early Christianity.

Glencolumbkille is a haven of peace and relaxation for those desiring a holiday in an un-spoilt environment. We welcome you and hope you enjoy yourselves here and that you will come back again... and again.
