Welcome to Sandrock Holiday Hostel
"Ireland's Most Northerly Point" open all year. Sandrock Holiday Hostel is located at Ireland's Most Northerly Point at Malin Head overlooking the fishing pier, beach, sea and highlands of Donegal across the bay. During summer months basking sharks, dolphins and seals can frequently be viewed from Hostel.
The ever changing spectacular scenery, especially the seascape can be observed from the hostel. Sandrock Hostel is situated at Ireland’s most northerly point in Malin Head above the small fishing pier at Port Ronan. Because of the hostel’s close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean (White Strand Bay) , there are spectacular views of the beach, pier, and headlands of the Inishowen and Fanad Peninsulas and the Highlands of Donegal.
Best hostel I've ever stayed at - looks and feels more like a B&B minus the breakfest. The hostel is directly across from the Atlantic Ocean and you can see many views of mountains in the distance. The couple that runs the hostel truly makes you feel at home and gives you all the information you need to know about the area. Great price too!!! Thank you for your great hospitality and we will try to get back and spend a week.
