Fairy Bridges, Bundoran

4.5
#2 of 16 in Things to do in Bundoran
Sea stacks that are hundreds of years old, Fairy Bridges were the area's original tourist attraction way back in the 19th century. Long before then, locals believed these rocks were haunted by fairies--thus their name. Take a seat in the so-called "Wishing Chair," a natural formation overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. You may not find the rock formations themselves that exciting, but the views are spectacular and offer plenty of memorable photo opps.

  • A must see- and it’s free!! Spectacular views of the Atlantic and you can watch the surfers from atop the bluffs! The fairy bridges are enchanting to see the waves spraying up through and don’t forget to make a wish in the wishing chair. Surfboards are available for rent as well as horse back tours of the beach
  • The Fairy Bridges at Roghey, Bundoran is such a magical place. It's a Surfers paradise and there is sometime so screen about the sea there on both a calm and rough day it's mind blowing. A must to be seen.
  • Parking free. Well marked once you know where you are going but could do a better job with funneling you from the parking area.
  • Beautiful natural scenery. Very close to car park so you don't have to walk far.
  • Fab place to take in the views , plenty of walking areas. And surf school. Not far from bundoran town center . Lots of holiday homes / mobile homes for the summer season, most shops/ arcades in the town close up out of season . So it's a bit of a ghost town rest of the year
