The Donegal region

Bundoran provides an ideal base for exploring the areas of Donegal, Sligo and Fermanagh. At Ballyshannon, only a short drive away, in this historic town anglers will be spoilt for choice. Game anglers can sample the excellent fishing for sea trout and salmon on the Erne Estuary. Coarse anglers can enjoy Assaroe Lake, arguably the first course fishery in the North west where pike have been known to exceed the specimen weight of 30lb. Sea anglers have easy access to the waters of Donegal Bay, the Mall Quay being an ideal starting point for a fishing trip.

Also, approximately a mile outside Ballyshannon, the Five Oaks Ranch which is a family run business which specialises in Western Style horse riding using genuine American quarter horses, appaloosas and argentinian cow horses. It is based in the heart of the Knather Woods. Ballyshannon is also home to a host of festivals, The Ballyshannon Street Carnival in October each year. The Rory Gallagher Tribute Festival, Ballyshannon Folk Festival, Ballyshannon Drama Festival to name a few.

There are also a number of walks in the area, The Bluestack Way has been developed as a waymarked way. 47km long, it extends from Donegal Town to Ardara and has local link routs from towns and villages adding a further 63 km to the route. Also The Creevy Shore Walk which is a purpose built walk from Rossnowlagh through Creevy and on to the mouth of the Erne Estuary at Ballyshannon (approx 10 miles).The North West Cycle Trail is a 326km circular cycle route through counties, Donegal, Tyrone, Fermanagh, Leitrim and Sligo.

The Rossinver Organic centre is just 20 minutes from Bundoran and runs really informative courses for adults and children all year round. Also in Ballyshannon is a Watersports Centre offering activities such as sailing, kayaking, team games, archery, windsurfing and canoeing. Visit Belleek village which is home to the world famous pottery or Castle Coldwell Island where you can walk around the island and feed the swans and ducks. The renowned Marble Arch Caves is a great day out and only a 30 minute drive away.

There is a variety of beaches in the area: Bundoran beach has been popular for years and is patrolled in summer. Tullan is best for surfing, but has no lifeguard. Rossnowlagh is 5 miles from Ballyshannon and has lifeguards in summer. Murvagh beach is located 2 miles away of the Donegal Town road between Ballintra and Laghey, it is a quiet safe beach with no waves and a great spot to learn kite surfing - lifeguard in summer. Mullaghmore is a beautiful calm family beach with lifeguards. Home to a sailing club where you can take courses on learning to sail. Streedagh beach is 2 miles from Grange village. Possibly the nicest beach in the area, there is something for everyone, plenty of empty waves, lagoon for kite sports at high and low tide and great for walking.

Going in the other direction out of Bundoran, Sligo is home to a number of attractions. The Yeats Society was founded in Sligo in 1958 to commemorate and honour the memory of W.B. Yeats. The Society operates from the Yeats Memorial Building in the centre of Sligo. Highlights of the year are undoubtedly the Yeats International Summer School held each year at the end of July, beginning of August and the Yeats Winter School held over the last weekend in January or in early February. W.B. Yeats grave is at Drumcliffe between Bundoran and Sligo. Other attractions in Sligo include the Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery.

Carrowmore is reputedly one of the oldest and largest Stone Age burial sites in Western Europe.Culkins Emigration Museum at Dromore West, Co. Sligo has a host of fascinating artefacts and features relating to the poisnant era when emigration was the only hope for a better life. Innishmurray Island at Mullaghmore where the ruins of the 6th century Monastery founded by St. Molaise are probably the best preserved in Ireland.


Bundoran, or as its known in Irish 'Bun Dobhrain' which means 'the foot of the little water', is the last southerly town in Donegal and is the gateway to the north of Ireland from the west. It has changed from a summer seasonal town to an all year round town with thousands of visitors flocking to it every weekend with such attractions as musical weekends and large conferences.

There are many and varied activities in Bundoran and the surrounding areas. There is a Waterworld located on the sea-front in Bundoran. Facilities include 2 leisure pools, a wave pool with 5 patterns, 2 speed rapids and a variety of children's features. Adults may prefer to relax in the seaweed baths, which include steam cabinets, drench showers, relaxarium, sunbed and ocean based therapies. There is also a large multi-screen Cineplex. Bundoran is also known as the surf capital on the west coast of Ireland and there are a number of surf schools in the town.

Extremely popular is the Sea Sessions Surf & Music Festival. It is without doubt becoming one of the best music festivals in Ireland. Music, surf competition, cinema, art & photography, BMX, skating, gourmet food stalls, on site bars, and more: all adding up to a great weekend. Bundoran Sea Star Angling is a very high specification vessel fitted with all the latest fishing and navigation equipment. She is licensed for 12 passengers operating daily (weather permitting).

Bundoran Golf Course is one of the oldest in the country dating back to 1894. It overlooks the Atlantic and people are always impressed by the setting of this links course, situated along a cliffside with wonderful views of Donegal Bay and the Dartry Mountains. It has a unique beauty and is a pleasure to play. There are numerous other courses short drives away.

The Equestrian Centre is open to all levels of riders, with rugged beaches and mountain trails. There are also a number of walks in Bundoran. The Cliff Walk is a walk along the clifftops and seashore, this route takes you westward over the River Bradog and into the west end. The Roughey Walk is a circular walk taking in views of the Atlantic Ocean from Roughey.

"A comfortable stay"

First time in Bundoran and like a lot of seaside towns, it's suffering due to the recession, however, the people are friendly and there are lots of nice towns and villages in the area such as Mullaghmore (do not miss). It can be a bit pricey eating out for visitors from the UK but suprisingly the higher class eateries are not that much more expensive than the more downmarket ones - so give yourself a treat. I would definitely recommend a car!

Many thanks for your kind review. I'm glad you enjoyed Bundoran and the people. Thank you again.
