This is a really nice property kept in immaculate condition. Rooms comfortable. Breakfast served at table and one of the best I have had. Dinner good but spoiled by hour long delay at table before starters were served. Atmosphere a bit stiff, notices are harsh, while service is efficient it is not so warm.

Room Tip: Sea view is nice.

One of the most surprising places I have stayed in ages. The service was impeccable from start to finish, the bar and restaurant were terrific, and the view from our room (Minnie Driver room) was spectacular. I'd recommend this hotel to everyone looking for a friendly place to stay in the area.

Only two minor gripes:
1. Why do they take away the coffee, tea etc in the evening? Just before bed is one time you'd love a hot drink!
2. It's a pity that the bar and restaurant are only open in the evening - I'm sure people would love to go there for lunch.

Room Tip: Go for a room on the front, overlooking the bay. One to ask for is the Minnie Driver room

The window in our room was so grand!! It gave us a terrific ocean view. Our room was extra large with comfy twin beds. We arrived so very late and it was also raining, the night staff came out to greet us and show us where to put the car down. Very nice of him to look after us in that way and get us up to our room. It was a lovely one night stay.

Fitzgeralds is perfectly located, just 5 mins walk to the main street and 5 mins walk to the beach. As it is not on the main strip, it is quieter, which means you aren't going to have your sleep interrupted by any over zealous party goers going by. It is a small family run hotel with just 16 rooms. This means that the service we got was excellent. We had two rooms overlooking the bay with amazing views. On day one we simply sat in the bay window watching the tide come in, very relaxing!

The rooms were well clean and well maintained. They are basic but in great condition, cleaned on a daily basis.

John is the face of the hotel. He seems to be there permanently, and is very friendly and welcoming. Our only regret is not eating in the restaurant during our stay. The food looked delicious and locals seem to come to the restaurant for the food. It is a small restaurant so I would say you have to book in advance.

I would definitely recommend Fitzgeralds, we will be staying there again next year. And we will definitely be eating in the restaurant too!

Stayed here for 1 night while attending a concert in bundoran. We were shown to our room and the man checked what else we might need , like who liked extra pillows and got them straight away. Our room was at the front with a lovely view with a picture of Minnie driver on the wall who once stayed in the room!! The bar was very comfortable. I really enjoyed the breakfast as it was freshly cooked and we had a choice from the menu. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back and would recommend it.

This hotel made me think of seaside hotels described in the English novels I grew up reading, and in June of this year, I actually got to stay in one. Our room was at the front of the hotel was very large and quiet and had an AMAZING view of the ocean. Our host was very welcoming; our breakfast (could only stay one night, unfortunately) was very good and filling. The hotel is in a great location-we were able to walk to our restaurant, the beach, some shops. If we are ever back this way (visiting from London, Canada), we will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view-beautiful.

We stayed in Bundoran for a golf trip and I admit that we were a bit apprehensive about the hotel upon arrival. However, we visited the bar/restaurant for a drink and it helped us get a better feeling for the place. We originally intended going out for food but ended up eating there and thank god we did, the food was great and the wine list was excellent especially for a small hotel. The family that run the hotel were very nice and the son 'John' was great. Always enthusiastic even with four golfers coming home late at night.
Keep up the good work and thanks for everything.
