Lonely Planet review
A private, unpaved drive leads off the R238 Carndonagh road just north of town to a grove of trees and this secluded 20-bed hostel. It's in a nook-and-cranny-filled 18th-century farmhouse beside a river, with some gorgeous spots to pitch a tent. The owner is a fount of information on the area's rich history and folklore. Cash only.

Our nearby main house called Gulladuff House of the local Gulladuff Townland, is the oldest continually inhabited house in the area and predates the town of Moville that was built largely since 1835. This House, built on the site of two earlier cottages, is from the 1700s. Two rivers meet close to the hostel and in front of the house. The main rive then does a spectacular U- turn in the woods. There are 4 bridges altogether and one can walk to the town over two of them. Two are archaeological sites and one is reputed to be the oldest in Ireland and dated from the 6th century as built by St. Patrick. It s associated with nearby 0.5km distant early Christian monastic settlement of Cooley Cross where there is a Celtic cross (pre-Christian) and monastic ruins including a corbelled skull house oratory. The Corn Mill, with which we share our entrance, was originally part of the overall property. There is much wildlife including bats, varied birds, and frogs, badgers.
