Family Testimonials

Had a wonderful stay in the Great Northern Hotel in August. We decided last minute to book a weekend stay in Bundoran. We are a family of four and were looking for a family orientated trip.  As it the only four star hotel in Bundoran, we decided on this one, we got a reasonable rate which included breakfast and dinner on both days.  The breakfast and dinner in the dining room was perfect, fast service, very tasty and an excellent variety every evening on the dinner menu. All the hotel staff are friendly and very accommodating.  My family and I can not wait to return again.

Stayed with my husband & 2 children for 2 nights. Had a brilliant time in this lovely hotel. Excellent friendly staff throughout, our room was great & we really enjoyed the food - absolutely no complaints. Beautiful comfortable reception area for chilling out also. Fab, traditional, charming hotel that I would highly recommend to anyone, excellent value for money & we will definitely be back. Great atmosphere in hotel on Sun when Donegal beat Dublin!!

There is a kids club on site but we didnt use it as we had lots to do in bundoran. Although from what i heard from other parents it was actually quite good. We did use the pool and the girls loved it. Had bar food and it was well priced for the 4 of us and served the usual kids favourites and adults alike.  Would like to return again and make use of the kids club and of course the golf. Would return as a family, as a couple or with a group as this hotel caters for all. Our 2 girls really loved it there and are jumping at the chance to get back.

Stayed here with my wife and my 2 girls (aged 3 and 5). We have stayed in bundoran many times over the years on our own but not in the Great Northern. The hotel is set in a great location, overlooking the sea and bundoran and is surrounded by a golf course (next time im here im having a round or 2) We were a bit aprehensive about taking our 2 girls as we werent sure how well the hotel would cater for children. Have to say it is very child friendly and we didnt feel out of place as there were so many families there.


The Great Northern Hotel is a truly amazing place to stay. As a four star hotel, it definitely lives up to its high standards. There's something for everyone in the family, from swimming to relaxing and having a great time. There's a Kids Club too so children of all ages can go bowling, to the cinema, do arts and crafts or get active with fun outdoor games. The food is exquisite and you'll always leave the peaceful dining room, full and happy. The staff are exceptionally helpful, especially those at reception and the waiters are just the same. The rooms are gorgeous and have such comfortable beds where you'll sleep long, calm nights and with a spotless bathroom, you won't leave disappointed. We found the situation perfect with a beach just down the road. We loved everything so much that we came back for four continuous years and plan to go a fifth! It's great for family holidays and with someone to assist your every need, why would you go anywhere else?


We have just returned from a really super weekend at this hotel. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the level of service was superb, and the food was fantastic. Location is excellent also, just a very short walk to the centre of Bundoran (even my 3 year old could manage it). As a family with young children, the package deal which we booked and which included both breakfast and dinner was great value, and the kid's club was an absolute godsend, as you can't always be guaranteed good weather! Knowing that the kids were being well looked after and entertained enabled mum & dad to get a bit of a break too!! Will definitely be returning.
