Grand Central Hotel
Travel Blogs from Bundoran
... for lunch at Galway this is a busy city with cobblestone streets , many shops, cafés, buskers & bars. After lunch we drove to Knock with its modern cathedral and finally to Sligo , excursion tonight to Irish pub for drinks and ...
... What day this week? There are 7.
What time? 24 hours in a day.
What pub? There are 600+.
And you expect me to find you how??
Yet, as an overly excited me does...I went out. Looking, asking, searching.
I think i walked into 15 pubs. And at midnight 6 hours later, i walked sober back to the hostel.
You would think I would have given up. But no.
I do need a life though.
I was up early today because it was too warm to stay in my tent.
And back out on the waves I went again.
This time with no booties.
And boy was I actually going ok then! Clearly I wasn't made to use booties.
It was quite nice out there actually. But soooo mannnyyyy peopleeeees.
As in you either learnt to turn asap or knocked someones head ...
... was fun.
Honestly guys don't realise how easy they get it (Patrick...told you I mention everything).
A couple of the guys went back in at what I thought was 5 (it was 8, but saying that I thought it was 7 and it was 4:30) and I went with two of them to go and watch from the rocks.
The light doesn't makes sense up here. It wasn't dark until 11! And I think the only reason Patrick came ...
... that by the time I reach Dublin, it will be even more.
I have spent my night with a giant cup of tea (there were no mugs so I used a jug…) and a collection of notes writing and writing. So I am technically up-to-date at my end.
Although, you haven’t read any of them so you still think I am in Derry. Sly girl Lisa. Sly.
Actually, given there are about 6 entries before this one, you would know exactly where I am.
Lisa xo ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Central Hotel Bundoran
Not switched on
Rooms fairand staff told porkies for the duration of my stayregarding the switching on of the steam room in the mini gym.
Stayed at this hotel just a coupleof weeks ago and found the hotel clean and friendly. The food was good and my friends and I had a great time. I would recommend it.
Just spent a fantastic weekend in Bundoran at the Grand Central Hotel!! Bundoran is buzzing with activity and the people are really friendly. The hotel was excellent - very clean and had everything you could possibly want. There is a small gym and a steam room which was nice to relax in! The Central Bar in the hotel was great - live music & open fire. Would definately recommend it.
Is there a rating lower than terrible?
Rooms were dirty, staff very unfriendly, had to clear our own tables in restaurant, food cold and bland, Manager refused to meet us to discuss our complaints, very disappointed all round,a great let down, apparently staff problems in kitchen , which should reflect on guests who havee paid good money. No apologies were offered only excuses. Not to be Recommended.
Bring a tent
The toilets are filthy, the staff are unhelpful and rude and there is a limited choice of beers in the bar.
Accommodation and Faire Good
Just come back from St Patricks weekend celebrations. Staff could not do enough for you. food was of high quality and well presented
I stayed @ the Grand Central, a few times of the summer of 2002, I found the staff friendly & helpfulthe food was good, any problem I had was quickly sorted out, I would recommend for a family break
the food was a disgrace, the manageement were rude but on the bright side i found the restaurant staff lovely in particular a blond girl called Sarah who brightened up my stay in the dump
what can i say the place is a pig sty...... wait a minuite thats unfair, to the pig sty. The food or so they called it reaked of some foul odour. I have to say that the management were very good, at nothing, very snotty, knew everything, u were just another smug they could take advantage off, i think its safe to say that i wont be returning, but the bar was quite nice, one fella in particular stood out, a ginger lad, very friendly with frightinly handsome good looks.
Eat till you burst!!
Very comfortable rooms, friendly staff, delicious food served in ample portions, if you leave feeling hungry, boy, do you have a problem!!!
Great entertainment. Loved Fiddlers Green, atmosphere was so good.
