Bundoran Holiday Homes Donegal

Those entering County Donegal from Sligo will first meet Bundoran one of Ireland’s leading seaside resorts. This town has a lovely situation on the shore of Donegal Bay, backed by mountains.

It is very popular with families, having a wide range of outdoor and indoor activities including a fine beach. The name Bundoran (from bun dobhráin, meaning the place where a little stream of water enters the sea, i.e. the inlet near the Allingham Hotel) was first used in print in 1777.

At that time there were two separate villages – Bundoran which referred to what is today called the West End, and Single Street, about a mile away towards Ballyshannon.

Well into the second half of the nineteenth century the two villages were separate, with the original Bundoran remaining a small and genteel watering hole for the better off, centred around ‘Bundoran Lodge’, a summer house built by Viscount Enniskillen. Viscount Enniskillen’s summer house was similar to those which had become very popular on the south coast of England.
