“Beautiful setting, lovely stay”
Reviewed 4 August 2011

Great mix of people on site - families, couples, surfers, hitch-hikers. Basic but very clean showers and toilets (loo rolls supplied and fresh towels). Kitchen facility with cooker, fridge and kettle. Beautiful grounds with a stream, fairy cave, old boat, old Lough Swilly carriage converted to rooms. Lots to explore. Hens running around when we arrived and a vegetable patch. Football match with a lot of the campers went on til dark and the owner brought the kids to see where the fairies live.
I would have given this a 5 star rating if it weren't for the owners dog. It left a message (No.2!!!) beside our tent on two occasions. The owner dispatched both logs. And the dog also got into our tent (early hours) took some BBQ'd chicken. We're thick skinned and that wouldn't put us off going again. (At least it didn't crap on the BBQ LOL :-). Great spot - go visit - it's charming.

Room Tip: Put all food in sealed containers or leave in the kitchen.

We camped out in front of the Mill and had access to the fantastic Mill buildings and grounds to explore.
The staff were friendly and the owner Brendan took us on a brilliant trek around the local landscape taking in rivers, sand dunes, beach, cliffs and forest.

We've been in Corcreggan Mill Hostel around the 20th of June 2011, we've found a double room ensuite for 25 euro per night. The room was absolutely clean, clean towels, clean sheets and blankets. The hostel is really beautiful, it's an old mill that Brendan and friends decided to regain, and they did it at the best! Stone walls, encjanting rooms, sitting and common rooms with fireplaces....the place we were looking for.
Brendan and the crew are beautiful people, we've been like we were at home....and Brendan loves to talk you about the Dunfananghy area....just trust him, stay at the hostel for some nights, explore Dunfanaghy area...you'll be surprised! Highly recommended

Just home from a 2 night camping holiday and had a great time. We were greeted by Marina (and Danu the dog) who was very friendly and helpful and in no time we had the tents pitched right down by the river. The setting is beautiful and I spent some time exploring the little quiet areas around the gardens, it is so peaceful and it lets you get away from it all for a while. The whole place has got lots of interesting art work and it really has a lovely feel about it. Campers are well catered for with hot clean showers and a well equiped clean kitchen which was great, we only really used it for the kettle and fridge as we had brought barbeques with us. I would however like to apologise to Brendan for being slightly noisy on thursday night (I am not sure if it was the volume or quality of the singing that caused the complaint) but Brendan was very friendly about it and we calmed down before climbing in to our tents for a good sleep.

We spent some time in the local area including a hike out to he top of horn head, it really is breath taking scenery along the coast line but the cliffs are not for the feint hearted. Also the roads are twisty and narrow but it just gives you an excuse to drive slowly and enjoy the view.

We all agreed that we will definitely be back soon, really had a lovely couple of nights away and it was only made better by Brendan and Marina's hospitality.

Recently we stayed in a 2 person-bedroom in this hostel. Considering that it is a hostel the rooms are really comfortabel and clean. The public places/rooms are also very cose. You also have the possibility to have a continental or Irish breakfast. Very friendly personel! The way the hostel is built is very nice. Good place for staying.

The two of us spent two nights in Corcreggan Mill hostel recently. We travelled 2-1/2 weeks in Ireland, mostly in County Donegal. Now that we are home again (North Carolina, USA), we are enjoying wonderful memories. We thought the Mill House itself was just wonderful and we were so taken both by its history and by the host's enthusiasms and energies in restoring it to its present excellence. Staff had a beautiful manner in greeting us and their other guests, welcoming us all, finding out our interests, and guiding us to places in the area they believed we would like. The gardens, both floral and culinary, were so lovely in the late spring. Loved late afternoon walks through the garden, past the campground where children were playing, and down the path to the meditation rock, where we sensed the ancient energy of that place.

We had a comfortable and clean room with bath, and were impressed by the handcrafted beds made from repurposed railroad ties. They were beautiful as well as great to sleep on. The kitchen was pleasant and functional, and the downstairs and upstairs sitting rooms were really outstanding--homey and beautifully appointed with lovely furniture and art.

Two touching things about our stay there were (1) the host's reading of one of his essays/stories about his long-ago poignant relationship with an elderly neighborhood man, and (2) the flying of our national flag while we were there. The flag display was lovely and thoughtful and made us laugh. When we drove in, the second afternoon of our stay there, Maria met us on the lawn and said, "We've been waiting for you," as she pointed to the stars and stripes flapping at the top of the flagpole.

We imagine that the Mill House is housing more and more events--weddings, readings, artistic and theatrical events, reunions, musical performances. This should be a wonderful and satisfying summer for travelers who are lucky enough to stop at Corcreggan Mill.
With heartfelt appreciation,
Jeanne and Joyce
