The only thing good about this hotel is it's location. Overlooking the sea and next to a golf course it could be a fantastic place but it is tired and musty and dirty. My room was full of mold on the bathroom ceiling and had cob webs. Need I say more. Skip it.

Firstly as great advantage point is that The Great Northern hotel is situated in the best position in Bundoran; central but very quite due to the golf course that wrap around the hotel. And amazing views! There are more central hotels on the main road but... More
