Fodor's Expert Review Holyrood Hotel

Main St., Bundoran, Co. Donegal, Ireland

With the mountains on one side and the sea on the other, the Holyrood, part of the fabric of Bundoran for more than 60 years, is delightfully hemmed in and conveniently placed along Main Street. Well-appointed rooms, refurbished in 2017, are decorated in restful colors; there's a warm feeling even when the Atlantic is sweeping in and howling a gale around the doorways and windows. The Watermelon restaurant serves freshly cooked-to-order breakfasts as well as dinner. A grill menu is available in the Waterfront bar from 12:30 to 9 pm, and there's a seasonal carvery menu. In a separate building at the rear of the hotel, the Blue River Leisure Club boasts a gym, pool, Jacuzzi, and a sauna. The Escape Beauty and Spa rooms offer various treatments and seaweed baths.
