Stayed here for two nights, and liked it - definitely very convenient that it's an American-style 'motel' where you can park outside the room. Room was probably a bit dated, but spacious and SPOTLESS, really high standard of cleaning. Breakfast was fine and there's a beautiful beach right outside your front door. It's about a fifteen minute walk into Buncrana... More

We came to buncrana to play golf and finished at two. As we were eating in the evening we would only need a sandwich of some type. This place didn't do them as they "were too busy as it was a bank holiday"!!! There were two waitresses having a chat together and three people behind the bar looking for something... More

Great location, good value, brilliant food and drink with good entertainment on in the evenings. Still cant speak highly enough and we are already... More

I spent one night here on business. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is on a busy road so there was some traffic noise. 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
