The Holyrood Hotel

Known for its stunning location, its fantastic facilities and the warmth of its welcome, the Holyrood is a hotel unlike any other.

This is the hotel for you. Located in the heart of Bundoran, the Holyrood has a beautiful Blue Flag beach practically on its doorstep and offers breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Known as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the North West of Ireland, Bundoran is Donegal’s most southerly town and its most popular seaside resort. It’s also a main stop on the famous Wild Atlantic Way. The Holyrood Hotel attracts holidaymakers of every kind and in particular couples, surfers and families with children.

The 4-star hotel has a cosy bar, three eating venues all of which serve delicious fresh food, a modern leisure club and a luxury spa. There’s also a fantastic children’s club.

Bedrooms are comfortable and luxurious, and you can enjoy free wi-fi access throughout the hotel.

Steeped in history, the Holyrood has been in the hands of the well known McEniff family for three generations. The family pride themselves on offering the warmest of Donegal welcomes to all their guests, insuring your visit is a happy and memorable one.

The Holyrood hotel has 91 bedrooms in total. They differ in style, colour scheme and size, but each has been thoughtfully designed with great attention to detail.

When booking you can choose from any of the following rooms; family rooms, double rooms, twin rooms, triple / quad rooms.

Whatever room you choose we want you to feel at home in the Holyrood. We’ve therefore attempted to make every bedroom as comfortable as possible. Each room has wi-fi access, a flat screen multichannel TV, a hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities.


The Holyrood Hotel offers a number of dining options. All of our food is fresh, locally sourced and prepared on the premises each day. We pride ourselves on the quality of our cuisine and the wide selection of meals and beverages that we offer.
