Why Book a Family Holiday with us?

The Holyrood Hotel prides itself on being a family hotel which is run by a family. Let our family look after yours. We have a long history of clients returning time and time again with their families, and it’s not for nothing. At the Holyrood, we’ve geared many our facilities, from the rooms to the leisure activities to the menus, specifically for families. In fact, there’s no better place for you and your children to stay whilst visiting Bundoran.

Warm family welcome:
From the moment you pick up the phone, to when you walk into the hotel for the first time and throughout your stay, we guarantee a warm reception at the Holyrood. We aim to make your experience with us as comfortable as possible and to accommodate you in any way we can.

Helpful staff:
Initially, we’ll help you to choose the right room for your family. We’ll also do our utmost to accommodate any additional requests.

We’ll provide information on activities and sites to see in the area and generally aim to make your family holiday one to remember.

Excellent accommodation:

Aware that parents and children alike need plenty of space, our family rooms are designed accordingly. Not only are they spacious and comfortable, we’ve endeavoured to make all of our rooms aesthetically pleasing. Each has been thoughtfully designed using modern furnishings. Every room comes with a large ensuite bathroom, a flat screen multichannel TV, a hairdryer, and tea and coffee making facilities.  All of our bedrooms, as well as the common areas in the hotel have free wi-fi access.

The location of the Holyrood is ideal for families. The hotel is to be found just across the road from main blue flag beach in Bundoran. It offers stunning views of Donegal Bay and even more stunning sunsets.

In terms of leisure activities, we cater for both adults and children at the Holyrood. The Blue River Leisure Centre therefore is suitable for both and provides facilities for children and adults alike.

Adults can enjoy the in-house luxurious Spa @ Orchids at the Holyrood, which is a great way to relax away from the kids. Have a look at some of our treatments.

Bundoran is considered Ireland’s surfing capital. This is another activity that attracts both adults and children. There are a number of professional surf schools in the area and all offer surfing lessons and equipment.

Tourist Sites:
There are a multitude of tourist sites to visit and most of them are family orientated so the kids will enjoy them as much as adults.

Adventure for all ages:
There are plenty of other activities for the kids in Bundoran besides surfing. Stand-up paddling, kayaking, body boarding and cliff jumping are all popular with families. But there are so many other entertainment options for kids besides.

Whether you’re looking for an adrenalin rush, the challenge of a new sport or you want master a skill, let us help you to plan the perfect family day out.

Our Kids’ Club:
Our go!kids! Club is second to none, offering a wide range of supervised activities. It’s designed not just as a babysitting facility, but with the enjoyment of the children in mind. We can testify that children of all ages love it!


Family Dinning:                                                                                                                                                                        We welcome kids at the Holyrood in both The Waterfront Bar and Grill and The Watermelon Restaurant. The menus in both dining venues cater for adults and children, with plenty of options for the latter. We offer a range of healthy kid's meals, made with local produce and specifically designed by our in house chef with little ones in mind. Our selection of homemade desserts is second to none.
