Jump into Bundoran for 2018!
Bundoran is the ideal family holiday spot for 2018 with a wide array of attractions and activities to keep you occupied during that precious free time with your loved ones.
Nestled amongst the spectacular scenery the area has to offer with stunning views of Donegal Bay, the Dartry Mountains, Slieve League and Mullaghmore is the Fairy Bridges and Wishing Chair. Recently voted among Ireland’s Top 10 Hidden Gems by readers of the Irish Independent, this unique attraction has been delighting visitors to the seaside town for hundreds of years and indeed was Bundoran’s original tourist attraction back in the 1700s as part of the stunning Roguey coastal walk. Believed by the locals to be haunted by fairies due to the natural blowholes in the area, the arch became known as the Fairy Bridges with the nearby wishing chair adding an extra bit of mystery to any visit.
Part of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, Bundoran is known as Ireland’s Surfing Capital and any day throughout the year you can find locals and visitors taking advantage of the most wonderful of natural amenities right on our doorstep – the Atlantic ocean. From beginner to pro, there’s always a wave in the area with 5 surf schools providing expert tuition, advice, board and wetsuit hire.
Some might prefer to spectate than participate and where better to spectate from than over six kilometres of coastal walks winding around the rugged wild Atlantic coastline offering seating areas or just continuous trails as you shake off the cobwebs with the fresh sea air.
S marks the Spot! New for 2018 is the Bundoran Selfie Trail. We’ve got so many great spots to take selfies at that we’ve put them all on the map. Check out the map in the middle of the new brochure or our online map at www.discoverbundoran.com/selfie and don’t forget to tag us in your photos!

Abba Sensations, Bagatelle and Christy Moore are just some of the artists performing at the Great Northern Conference Centre whilst Ireland’s top country acts appear at the Allingham Arms every weekend with traditional sessions, acoustic sessions and live rock entertaining at venues right across town all year round.
If outdoor activities are more your thing then consider Bundoran Golf Club with its all year round playable golf course and striking sea views, Donegal Equestrian Centre who will bring you on a canter through the magnificent sand dunes and onto the majestic Tullan Strand or why not fish for over 70 different species which call Donegal Bay, the Drowes River and Lough Melvin their home – all within minutes’ drive of Bundoran.
