Bay View Hotel
For the briny smell of the sea and fresh-caught fish, this is the place to be. Sitting on the harbor in the middle of the fishing port of Killybegs, this four-story 3-star hotel exudes a nautical ambiance. Step outside the door and cross the street to the Pier — here you can watch the fishing boats pull into harbor and unload their catches or take a guided tour of the "Veronica," the queen of the Irish fishing fleet. Facilities include two bars, dining room, and brasserie, all overlooking the harbor, plus a fully equipped leisure center with indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, and gym. The 40 guest rooms, many of which face the harbor, are modern with light pine furnishings, brass accessories, and up-to-date amenities.
