The layout of the hotel is quite unusual in that the reception area is in one building and then the rooms are accessed via separate doors opening onto the car park. Thus checking in... More

Just back from an overnight stay in the Harbour Inn. I am so glad I chose it. The staff, food, drink all excellent, in fact the owner offered to run us into Buncrana as we wanted to have a look around. It was clean and the rooms very spacious and comfortable. The view looking out at Lough Swilly was fantastic.... More

Having stayed at the Harbour on a previous golf outing for 7, this time there were 10 of us visiting.The standards remain excellent throughout all aspects of the hotel including reception,restaurant,bar and domestics......all doing their job to a very high standard and ,most importantly ,with a smile on their faces.Kathleen and her staff are great ambassadors for Donegal's welcoming reputation....
