The now-famous Donegal Hobbit House is arguably one of the most popular Airbnbs in the area.
It’s easily one of the most unique places to go glamping in Donegal, anyway!
In the guide below, you’ll discover everything from what’s on offer to those that stay at the Donegal Hobbit House.

Welcome to the Donegal Hobbit House
This Airbnb is hosted by Gary and can be found tucked into the rugged landscape of Southwest Donegal in Glencolumbkille.
It was recently voted ‘Best Play to Stay’ by the Irish Times and had previously been given the illustrious title of ‘Best Place in Ireland to Get Away from it All’ (2017) by The Times.
About the Hobbit Hole
Gary describes the rental as ‘An amazing contemporary mountain pod inspired by Irish archaeology and under new ownership, this bespoke ‘one-off’ retreat is a perfect ‘minimoon’/Honeymoon destination in a wilderness landscape. Walk to the secluded beach or up ‘your’ mountain to discover the seven lakes.’
Aside from the glorious view that visitors are treated to from the comfort of their bed, something that really appeals to me is that fact that you can take a short stroll to a secluded beach nearby.
The perfect little hideaway. Absolute bliss.
How much a night will set you back
I popped 2 nights in December into the listing on Airbnb for two people. Now, keep in mind that there’s no guarantee that we’ll be allowed to travel outside of our counties by then!
It worked out at:
- Total cost: €254
- Per person: €127
- Book a night or see more here
- If you use the link above we’ll make a tiny commission that goes towards the running of this website and you won’t pay anything extra (cheers if you do – it’s appreciated!)
