The wild beauty of West Donegal

Situated in the West of County Donegal, we have some of the most incredible landscapes known to Ireland. With sweeping coastlines and idyllic beaches, rolling hillsides and ancient stones, and some of the highest sea-cliffs in Europe, Aras GCC is the perfect place to stay. This is the ideal place for the nature lover, the avid hiker, or simply for those who want to get away from city life. Aras GCC is perfectly located for you to explore these surroundings: either by foot, bicycle or just a short drive.

Our Rooms and accomodation

Accommodating varying group sizes, from solo travellers to families on a budget, all the way up to much larger groups of up to 50 people booking out the entire venue.

We have the space and facilities to meet your accommodation needs. Whether your preference is bed only, bed and breakfast, or fully catered (arranged for groups on request), we aim to cater to your specific needs.

History and Culture

We welcome you to come and explore the rich historical heritage of Glencolumbkille, going back as far as 3000 BC. From Stone Age Cairns (3000 BC), to Celtic earth and stone works (300 BC), to more “recent” historical Church settlements – visitors with an avid interest in history won’t be disappointed. The very name Glencolumbkille gets its roots from Columba (521-597 AD) who was instrumental in bringing Christianity to Ireland. Guests can visit the Folk Village in Glencolumbkille and get a taste of what life was like in those days, with many of the ancient relics on display.

Very enjoyable. My family and i had originally planned to stay one night but decided to spend two. I can't think of anything that could have been better.
