Donegal is the absolute most bueatiful area I. Ireland. If you need a home base this I'd the place to stay. Great place, amazing view and wonderful people. Make sure you meet Dennis and Ann Marie, lovely people.

My second visit to Dún Ulún - I love this place - the setting is just magical overlooking a beautiful bay between Kilcar & Carrick. Joanie was brilliant - so friendly, helpful and welcoming with our group of 13. Breakfast was cooked to order and was delicious. Joanie sorted out our dinner booking when we discovered the place we had...

Joanie is an absolutely lovely woman and a perfect B&B host. I felt right at home with her and know if I lived there, we would be fabulous friends.

This place was wonderful. The views are amazing and the couple that runs it are fantastic! Probably the most comfortable bed we slept on the whole time we were in Ireland. It made an excellent base for exploring Donegal and we ended up staying one more night than we originally intended.

On a tour of Ulster this summer, our stay at Kilcar was by far the best part for me. Better than the giants causeway or the rope bridge at carrick-a-rede were the stunning views at Slieve League, the highest sea cliffs in Europe. I was told about Slieve League by a local man Gerry Lyons who, together with his wife...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Lyons family run Dún Ulún House in Kilcar, County Donegal, Ireland. Our hostel offers a warm welcome and 7 en suite rooms to a high standard of comfort that you would expect from a guesthouse or Bed and Breakfast (B&B). We provide either a self catering option or Bed and Breakfast (B&B) service. We also can offer a private camping ground (suitable for tents and campervans) with spectacular views over the Atlantic Ocean. Dún Ulún House is situated in the Gaeltacht area (Irish speaking area) of South West Donegal, 11 km west of Killybegs and 1 1/2 km past Kilcar Village. It has spectacular views and a glorious setting overlooking Towney and Donegal Bays with counties Leitrim, Sligo and Mayo in view. Dún Ulún House is a perfect base for touring this beautiful part of Donegal along the Wild Atlantic Way and it's only a few kilometers from the highest sea cliffs in Europe Sliabh Liag (Slieve League). It is an ideal location for outdoor enthusiasts for fishing, swimming, surfing, deep sea angling, boat trips, diving, walking, cycling, mountain climbing, horse riding, painting, traditional music and bird watching. Dún Ulún House is also the perfect place for a relaxing getaway in the Irish countryside. We hope to see you soon! ... more   less
