What to do in Ayr

How can I find hotels in Ayr?

Whether you're thinking about organising an unforgettable golfing tour, you want to explore a relatively undiscovered part of the UK's coastline, or you just want to discover an underrated city break destination, hotel deals in Ayr will hit the spot. Ayr is one of the biggest towns on Scotland's west coast, and is a jumping-off point for all kinds of outdoor activities. The city itself doesn't lack for pubs, nightlife, and superb restaurants, not to mention a popular racecourse. And Ayrshire in general is packed with things to see, from the cottage of legendary poet Robert Burns, to lavish country houses, craft museums, and theme parks which blend animal petting with adrenaline-filled rides. Even better, if you're seeking a comfortable and affordable hotel Ayr offers plenty of options. And the best way to find a place to stay is via the eDreams search engine. Just enter your travel dates, check out our listings, and pick a place that captures your imagination.

What must I see in Ayr?

Most visitors taking advantage of hotel deals in Ayr use the city as a base, but it's actually got quite a lot to offer. The Heads of Ayr family park mixes waterslides, kiddie-friendly digger rides, and animal petting; there's a beautiful Victorian seafront and a sandy beach, while Ayr Racecourse hosts a full schedule of prestigious races. For golfers who want a convenient hotel, Ayr is hard to beat. With Turnberry and Troon within 20-25 minutes drive, as well as a huge variety of affordable and high-quality courses, Ayrshire is a little corner of golfing heaven. And thanks to Burns, it also attracts a stream of literary pilgrims. Don't miss the Robert Burns  Birthplace Museum (and the cottage where he was born). Culzean Castle isn't far from hotels in Ayr, either, and also represents a must-visit. If you've been wowed by period dramas or appreciate 18th-century architecture, this palatial manor is essential viewing. But you can step down the social ladder, too, thanks to the Dalgarven Mill Museum. Its waterwheel dates back 200 years, while spellbinding exhibits bring to life the experiences of humble folk brilliantly. Wherever you look, Ayrshire has something to offer.

Where should I stay in Ayr?

When looking for a hotel Ayr offers a wide range of neighbourhoods. However, the first place most people look is obvious: the seafront. Numerous hotels line the esplanade, providing gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean, and ready access to the sandy beach. Anyone looking for cheap hotels might venture inland a few hundred metres to the town centre. Charlotte Street and Main Street are good places to hunt, thanks to their charming Victorian architecture and proximity to the major shopping areas. Ayr Harbour is another option. It's a working harbour, serving ferries and fishing vessels, but the area could be a more affordable alternative to the seafront. Then there are Ayr's suburbs and nearby villages. When looking for local hotel deals, don't discount Newton-on-Ayr or even Prestwick, which is Ayr's immediate neighbour to the north. And if racing is your main interest, be sure to browse hotels in Wallacetown or Craigie. Both are leafy, relatively central neighbourhoods that are within 10 minutes walk of the course entrance. In any case, eDreams is here help you find the perfect hotel. So have a browse and use our filters to book a hotel today.
