You may not want to be that active when you get here and we’re the perfect spot for some “me time”. Enjoy a casual stroll along the famous Roguey cliff walk, West End walk or feel the sand between your toes on Tullan Strand or our Blue Flag Main Beach. Sit and enjoy a summer sunset and breathe in the fresh sea air or make a wish at the Wishing Chair whilst marvelling at the natural Fairy Bridges.
One of Bundoran’s flagship attractions, Waterworld, celebrates its 28th season and opens once again on Good Friday April 19th at 12pm for the 2019 season!
