Relaxing Hotel Breaks in DonegalNo vacation in Ireland would be complete without visiting the rugged and beautiful North West of Ireland and where better to base your stay than at Fitzgeralds Hotel, a superb quality Vacation Inn located in Bundoran Town and overlooking Donegal Bay.
County Donegal is one of the relatively unspoilt regions still left in Ireland where traditional skills are alive and well. A walk, cycle or drive along winding country roads is filled with the scent of broom, fuschia and honeysuckle in the hedgerows, turf fires from nearby homes and of course the wonderful bracing sea air.
Beautiful Mount Errigal in the North of Donegal – the whole region is rich in culture, history and christianity. The ruins of many churches, monasteries and early settlements are scattered throughout the landscape.
The Coastline of Donegal is a roller-coaster of wild and rugged scenery combined with a sense of peace and tranquillity only mother nature could have designed. With vast areas of unspoilt landscape to explore, Donegal is an ideal base for walking and cycling enthusiasts. From the stunning and breathtaking Cliffs of Slieve League, which plunge into the wild Atlantic ocean to calm and sheltered tidal inlets, fall in love with the landscape that inspired W B Yeats.
The County Donegal coastline has more sandy beaches than any other county in Ireland. Perfect and unspoilt … why not discover your own little sandy cove!
Bundoran has been a favourite with Irish families for many years with safe sandy beaches ideal for family holidays in Ireland. With a backdrop of beautiful mountains and the fresh clean waters of the Atlantic before it, Bundoran is the ideal seaside holiday destination. And with such an abundance of nature at our doorstep, the region is rightly famous for its fresh seafood, caught daily by local fishermen.
