Former An Óige Youth Hostel at Ball Hill, Co Donegal
Ball Hill Youth Hostel opened in 1947 and closed in 2004. Its position on an inlet on Donegal Bay is nothing short of stunning. The hostel was converted from a former coastguard station, which originally featured a square tower above the castellated affair near the camera. This photograph was taken in 2006. Please contact if you have any tales to tell of old hostels like this.
