I was at a wedding about 10 minutes down the road so me and some other friends based ourselves here. The hotel is very big and has a large bar and restaurant area. The bar was nice, Guinness of course but also lagers and spirits plus a good selection of food. My room entrance was in the car park, this... More

Kathleen also made dinner reservations for the 3 of us because the Harbour Inn is closed on Graveyard Day, a Sunday holiday where mot restaurants are closed after 3 p.m, I would make this # 1...

Everything clean and functional, there are lots of facilities, room and bathroom are large and the bed is comfortable. Breakfast is good and the dinner was fantastic. You get much at a reasonable price.

Traveling on a road trip through Ireland has revealed a mixed bag of hotels. Some with very small rooms. Some with tiny or antiquated bathrooms. Some with difficult parking. The list could be long. The Harbour Inn was none of these. The room was huge, even with a walk in wardrobe almost as big as some other rooms we have... More

We stayed here whilst visiting our daughter-in-law's family in Buncrana, and couldn't have been more pleased with our room - immaculate and up-to-date amenities - the warm welcome, and its location. The attached restaurant and bar were warm and cozy, and the food good. This will be our "home away from home" when we return for future family gatherings. Recommended.

When with a group of friends for a catch up on a quiet Monday night, did book a table the week before and we were very glad we did, even at 7 pm on a Monday evening it was busy. The waitress didn't rush us, and came back several times before we all ordered,this was not a problem. Our starters... More

Great location on main road and there is no significant traffic noise . There is no restaurant but does good bar food and irish whiskeys. Rooms are very comfortable with beds affording a good nights sleep. Breakfast is very good except for the sausages which seems to be the norm in inishowen. room rates are reasonable.Would definitely stay again

Stayed for two nights. Rooms were wonderful and clean. Atmosphere was just brilliant and food so delish. Steak was cooked just perfect and starters were mouth melting. Perfect prices for a perfect stay. Barry d waiter was funny and really helpful. 100% recommend the place.
