Bundoran, Co. Donegal

Bundoran (Bun Dobhráin in Irish) is a popular tourist town that is becoming renowned for its surfing on the south shore of Donegal Bay in County Donegal. It is an area of great scenic beauty with the Sligo-Leitrim mountains behind it to the south and the hills of Donegal across the bay to the north.

Bundoran is popular for surfing, with a beach in the centre of town (Main beach), and another beach, Tullan Strand, close by. Main beach has lifeguards on duty during the summer months. Tullan Strand has rip currents which make it unsafe for swimming, but it is a popular surfing beach during the summer, with bigger waves than in town. Rossnowlagh, 15 minutes drive from Bundoran, is the safest beach for beginner surfers, with no rip currents and lifeguards on duty.

Other attractions include a seaside promenade, golf course and swimming pool with slides and a wavepool. It has a range of cliffs carved by the waves into fantastic shapes at either end. Other activites include tennis, horse-riding, sea and river fishing. There is also a popular walk from Main beach to Tullan strand around the cliffs called roughy walk.
