My sister and I took our children for a 3nite stay here, very friendly staff, bar food lovely but waited well over an hour for food and children a bit restless. Breakfast very basic not much to choose from, quite disappointed. Very loud at night, my children were woke two nights with people arguing outside door, so they were a... More

I recently stayed at the Grand Central, on a 3 night family break, it was a disaster from the start, I booked a room that would cater for 2 adults & 3 children, even though only 2 children were with us, as they were both 12 I didn't mind paying extra for a little more space. On check in we... More

I recently stayed in the above hotel and would rate it as awful. My room was located above the bar which meant my young family and I were subjected to loud music nightly (until approx midnight). The view from my room was of the air conditioning system, having said that the dirt on the windows blocked out the view. The... More

Staff are really friendly, welcoming. Had a room with a great sea view. Location is very central ' right on the beach' in the centre of Bundoran. Bar and food are very good. Inexpensive car parking nearby. No parking on site is the only downside

Grand Hotel Bundoran is rip-off Ireland at its finest. Last night got a tiny wine (175ml vs. the 275ml small bottles in UK) and got charged € 5.70 = £3.80 here in the shoddy shabby rude Grand Central. Reception manager was rude to my wife; room had cracked tiles, tv not working, no plugs for bath or washbasin; no shampoos;... More

On arriving at the hotel the lady on reception seemed very nice although didn't seem to know much about the food situation. We were allocated sea view deluxe rooms but unfortunately the condensation and dirt on the windows made it impossible to see the sea. We decided to eat in the hotel so we ordered our food and waited almost... More
