Two new tours from Bundoran Tourist Office have been launched, adding to the tourism offering in the town.
A unique photography tour which will give an insight into the rich history of the town is hosted by Ian Mitchinson. The tour, over 3.5 hours, will meet at the tourist office and be a casual walk through our historic seaside town and will have objectives for creating photography, films and social content. As well as finding out about the history of the town including the introduction of tourism, the railway and the town’s role in the war of independence, the tour will have a discussion on the use of cameras, phones, DSLRs and drones.

Tour cost: €35
For those who wish to explore the wider area, a daily bus tour will run from the tourist office at 09:30am to Slieve League taking in Killybegs, Muckross, Slieve League and Glencolmcille returning to Bundoran after 5pm. This entertaining tour will give a real taste of Donegal where you’ll learn some Irish and maybe even a bit of poetry! The sixteen seat minibus will ensure a more intimate tour of the south of Donegal taking in Europe’s highest sea cliffs. The tour is run by www.donegalscenictravel.com

Tourism Officer Shane Smyth says that the tours are a great addition to the area ‘More and more visitors want to have experiences when they come to the area and I’m delighted that these tours are doing just that. For anyone into photography, Ian’s tour will be a perfect way to spend an afternoon in Bundoran, learning about the history of the town and also learning some creative techniques for photo taking. On a daily basis we are asked about tours to other parts of the county as visitors use Bundoran as a base. The new daily tour to Slieve League from right outside our front door at the Tourist Office will offer visitors a chance to experience Europe’s highest sea cliffs as well as taking in lots of “traditional Donegal”. I would like to wish both operators the best of luck with their ventures for the summer months and beyond.’
