Overview

As you begin the Roguey Walk Experience, you will arrive at the stunning Fairy Bridges – sea stacks thousands of years old, and and a star attraction of the Wild Atlantic Way Coastline. With scenic views for 360 degrees you can see back to Mullaghmore, County Sligo and across Donegal Bay to the magical Slieve League Cliffs. This is the playground of the legendary Little Folk, which coupled with the spectacular formations spanning the edge of the roaring ocean, prompted the local name “The Fairy Bridges”. While you’re there, take a seat on Bundoran’s own Wishing Chair. It is said that many of the town’s famous visitors over the years have sat here overlooking the wild Atlantic Ocean – from poet William Allingham to golfer Christy O’Connor Jr to Viscount Enniskillen to 10 times world champion surfer Kelly Slater – they’re all believed to have sat in Bundoran’s famous Wishing Chair located at the Fairy Bridges at Tullan Strand. Sit, make your wish, relax & enjoy your time in Bundoran.

A lovely spot for all the family but dangerous with young children. Please BCC close it off with a barrier before someone gets hurt.

Spectacular scenery! The power of the sea can be felt there. And go sit in the wishing chair while you are there. Wonderful place! And just right around the corner, on the street to the parking lot, is the Salty Fox - a whimsical restaurant...More

On top of the cliff tops you have to imagine the story of why this place is called Fairy Bridges. A walk along the cliff top paths you need to take care when being close to the actual bridge as there are no barriers for...More

These fairy bridges are on the cliffs between Bundoran and Rossknowlagh. Great to visit, with amazing views. The wishing chair is certainly worth a visit and a wish!

Nature at its best. The ocean carved out some magnificent bridges. A great place for picture taking. Well worth the stop. Plenty of parking.

A bit of a hike and scary if you look down but glad we saw this. Really shows the power of the sea with waves crashing up through it. Make a wish on the wishing chair too

A easy walk of a few miles around the edge of a golf course. Beautiful. The best access is north of town, with a small sign directing you to the Strand. We found free parking at the end of the road, but would be crowded...More

Depending upon how mobile you are. You can see the attraction from the roadside but if you struggle in anyway with uneven surfaces then I suggest you stay on the roadside and not walk down to the bridge. There are no... More

To visit the Fairy Bridges and Wishing Chair specifically you would need only 5-10 minutes. There is no fee as the site is wide open. However we would recommend continuing on the Roguey Walk and taking in the beautiful... More
