Bay View Hotel & Leisure Centre

Main St., Killybegs, Co. Donegal, Ireland

One of Ireland's most historic hotels, the Bay View has reestablished itself in the hearts of both locals and visitors since its reopening in 2014 after a three-year closure. Shiny new guestrooms, redesigned public areas, and a smartly restyled lively bar and restaurant are all part of the sceney package. Soothing tones of beige carpets and curtains complement cream walls in the clutter-free rooms and pave the way for a relaxing stay at a hotel that is back at the top of its game after more than 300 years of trading. It is well placed for seeing the glorious north shore of Donegal Bay and the attractions of the Wild Atlantic Way including the nearby Slieve League Cliffs. Luke's Restaurant serves up steak, lamb, and chicken or delights such as trio of fish Florentine on a bed of spinach and Parmesan cheese. Carvery lunches are available in the lounge bar from noon to 3 pm, and bar food is served up to 9 pm. There's also live music in the bar on weekends. Leisure facilities include a pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and gym. Famous Bay View residents of days gone by include Eamon de Valera, and the soldier and statesman Michael Collins. Midweek or special weekend deals are available that include some meals.
