We were a party of 10 who were students together on our 35th year reunion. The guy who welcomed us and showed us to our table was very friendly, very professional. Every member of staff who interacted with us was friendly, polite, helpful and above...all patient as one of our number was unwell and running very late. At no time did we feel rushed and a table adjacent to the dining room arranged for us to continue to catch up. The food was excellent, served promptly and without fuss. My husband and I will certainly be back and will be recommending Maddens to everyone who mentions BundoranMore

The food here is amazing! Hubby said it was the best fillet steak in a long time, and my sea bass was delicious. Lovely staff and great atmosphere. We sat outside in a heated sheltered area where we watched the sun go down over the...sea, enjoying the great food and lovely wine. Doesn’t get much better…More

Not one to write reviews on this but We are exhausted .Stayed here for one night . The food was nice but extremely over priced with the cheapest main on the menu being a burger at €20 . We had a street view room as...it was the only one left and it was the dearer room . We did not get any sleep as it was like trying to sleep on a run way it was so noisy between traffic , people walking upstairs sounded like they would come through the roof , people talking or should I say roaring outside our door which only got worse in the morning with the cleaners ! and what sounded like a boiler or toilet system nearly bringing the place down every half an hour . Staff were lovely tho . All in all nice place just over priced and not worth staying if your looking to sleep .More

My girlfriend and I spent two nights in Bundoran at the end of our Wild Atlantic Way trip and dinner and drinks at Maddens was the best way to round off our trip. Though the food was pricey, the drinks were very reasonable, €5.00 for...a pint of Guinness is bang on! The food was also well worth the price. My girlfriend had the fillet steak and I had lamb skewers. The portions were enormous and everything on our plate was so so tasty. We had a number of servers attend to us throughout the evening. Each one was as lovely as the next and we experienced quick efficient service. The atmosphere in the outdoor dining area was lovely and relaxed, and we didn't have to wear our jackets thanks to the heating which was a plus!More

Staff were very friendly and couldn't have done more for us. We accidentally booked outside seating but as there were no available tables indoors, we were offered blankets - didn't need them however. Weather was rubbish when we stayed but we were warm and dry...in the heated outdoor seating area. Food was absolutely delicious. We had a few cocktails too - arrived quickly and were very good.More
