Tullyarvan Mill is Inishowen’s largest hostel and the friendly, professional staff know how to make every guest feel welcome with helpful information on local attractions & activities. Tullyarvan Mill recently played host to a large group of returning visitors from the Basque Country, as part of a cultural trip. The trip was to explore the Irish way of life, the Irish Culture, Traditional Irish Music and Dance.
Basque Country Musical Group Enjoys Inishowen Coast
The group spent their timing staying in Tullyarvan Mill Hostel in Buncrana and due to it’s unique location, they had the chance to explore the rest of Inishowen. The sun was shining on their adventure to Moville and this meant they had the perfect opportunity to experience the Inishowen coast. The group went out on boats, kayaks, canoes & surf boards. They enjoyed many of the coves along the Moville Shore front walk, much of it has remained relatively undiscovered by many. Their experiences on the water was organised by Inish Adventures.
After a day on the water, the group had a chance to relax, back in Buncrana. Tullyarvan Mill provides a large self-catering kitchen, ideal for musical groups, with well-maintained amenities and an open dining area or weather permitting, the ability to dine alfresco in the Donegal air in our gardens on the banks of the Crana River.
The Mill has full Kitchen facilities and a lounge/common room, which is an ideal location for groups of all sizes, with FREE WiFi access – it’s a great place to relax during their time in the peninsula. The common room has ample space for everyone. The group enjoyed their time at Moville and before going out to their cultural exchange evening, they took time to relax by reading, watching TV, or playing table top games.

The group also took part in a cultural exchange with traditional music in O’Flaherty’s Bar in Buncrana.
