Dalby Hub Bunkhouse has 2 Star Tourist Board Certification. It offers exclusive single group occupancy in a beautiful location. Only one group will be booked in at any one time, your party will have exclusive use of the building.  

The Hub Bunkhouse is situated on the West Coast of the Island on the Raad Ny Foillan and is ideal for anyone exploring on bike or on foot.

Built into the lower elevation of the historic church and schoolrooms of St James Dalby, the Bunkhouse was originally designed as the school masters’ house. It was extensively renovated in 2019 to create a light open-plan but cosy living space which overlooks the sea and the far distant Mountains of Mourne and is strategically placed for stunning sunsets!                                        

We are a community run not for profit organisation: a Fairtrade, Eco Friendly Community looking forward to sharing this beautiful place with you.  We offer overnight stays for those walking the Raad ny Foillan at its most extreme and punishing stretch, with the opportunity to leave your backpacks and take an additional day to hike back to the historic Hermits’ Cell at Lhagg ny killey before continuing on your way.
