Pocket Guide: Family-Friendly Hotelss in Donegal

With its fabulous beaches, wide range of family attractions and beautiful woodlands ripe for exploration, County Donegal is the perfect destination for young and old alike. If you’re taking a trip with your children you can rest assured that you’ll have no trouble finding somewhere to stay that can cater for all age groups.

Whether you’re looking to a enjoy a taste of four or five star luxury or a bargain break in a budget hotel, there are plenty of options. There are hundreds of bed and breakfasts and guesthouses to choose from or, if your kids are that bit older and want to help you explore the real Ireland on a walking holiday, you could opt for a stay in one of the area’s comfortable hostels. If you want lots of space, consider a holiday home, cottage or apartment.

The Best Places to Stay

If you are travelling with your family you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting somewhere to stay in County Donegal. Wherever you are, you won’t be far from a beautiful stretch of sand, rolling waves and an amazing view. There are stunning woodlands and lakes dotted all over the county, and they are all perfect for exploring with the kids.

As you’d expect from the county’s biggest town, Letterkenny has lots of choices when it comes to accommodation, whether it’s in the centre or on the outskirts. Donegal Town is another great option and is particularly handy if you like everything close to hand - most of its hotels, pubs, restaurants, shops and coffee houses are located around an open, pedestrianised area called The Diamond.

Hotels by the Beach

Of course, Donegal is famous for its beaches, so you also need to consider the coastal resorts, particularly if you have young children in tow.

Bundoran is probably the most popular resort in the county, revelling in an almost carnival-like atmosphere during the summer months. Not only is it home to one of the most famous surfing beaches in the world, it also boasts, among other things, its own adventure park and aqua park on the seafront.

If you want to see the best stretches of sand, head for Rossnowlagh or Killahoey or Marblehill, located on the Ards Peninsula, close to Dunfanaghy.

Your Accommodation - Things to Remember

When you travel as a family you have to really think about where you’re staying. Your base is going to be turned into a temporary hive of activity, particularly if you are travelling with young children. They are likely to need regular return trips to their rooms to rest, a change of clothes or just a bit of downtime. You may also be going to bed earlier than normal so you need to make sure you have all the home comforts you need.

You need to ask for larger rooms, child-friendly menus, free cots and in-room Wi-Fi so older children can easily play on their tablets and smartphones. Ideally, look for accommodation in central areas close to everything you need.
