Costa del What? Bundoran is Where You'll Want to Be This Summer

Every year around this time thousands of travellers flock the country's airports to travel abroad. But not this year; Irish travellers will have to stay home and opt for local tourism. But who says they can't have an unforgettable holiday in Ireland?

Everything you are looking for in a holiday abroad can be found in a Bundoran staycation. You don’t believe us? Beaches, check. Hikes, check. Relax, check. Adventure, check, check, check!

Lockdown has forced us to spend many hours between four walls and we now have the opportunity to get out and connect with nature in Bundoran, the most southerly town in Donegal and the first Wild Atlantic Way Discovery Point in the county as you drive south to north. It is a fantastic base for a hill walking expedition either locally or as a starting point for experiencing the amazing wilds of Ireland's north west. 

To most of us, the first thing that comes to mind when we think of Bundoran is the beach. Facing Donegal Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, this Blue Flag beach is just 250 metres away from the Main Street and has many amenities within walking distance.

Bundoran offers a wide range of reef and beach options for all levels of surfers - not in vain it is known as the surf capital of Ireland. Discover why this summer! Don’t worry if you don’t have experience; our “A Wave in Bundoran” package offers a surfing lesson by Bundoran Surf Co suitable for all ages and levels.

Bundoran Adventure Park is a family favourite. With their vast selection of rides and attractions, golf, karts and much more, it will provide a full day of fun for all ages. Bundoran Adventure Park is open daily from 29th June to 6th September.

And after a day full of adventure, nothing like returning to the comfort of the Grand Central Hotel, in the heart of Bundoran, and recharge your batteries with a delicious meal at the Wild Atlantic Bar. Featuring a selection of appetisers, burgers, salads, sandwiches and desserts, the Bar Menu is perfect for those looking for a delicious hearty meal. Not to mention the yummy cocktails!

To reassure our guests that their safety and wellbeing is our utmost priority we have created a programme of measures that we have named ‘A New Clean’, in line with the government and Failte Ireland’s guidelines. The new programme will focus on cleanliness that will be visible to guests throughout their stay. We fully understand that our guests are looking for flexibility, that's why all our rates and packages offer free cancellation (except Prepay & Save).

From adventurous options to a relaxing break on the beach, Bundoran has it all for you to enjoy the perfect staycation this summer!
