I stayed here for two nights this week on my own for work purposes...all staff were very nice and it's a grand little hotel if you find yourself in this beautiful part of Donegal. I ate in the bar and the main dish was fab, the dessert was disappointing. Will definitely go back with family in tow next time to... More

Our room was a great size, clean and warm. We found the bed really comfortable, the only let down was the shower, the pressure wasn't great. The breakfast was lovely, plenty of choice and tasty. The bar/restaurant is also good, nice atmosphere and good value food. Friendly staff and good location as well.

When looking for a hotel for the night before a day's visit to Derry/Londonderry, I happened upon details of The Harbour Inn in Buncrana. It turned out to be a good find! The facilities were excellent for a very short stay. The food in the restaurant was well prepared and very tasty, so much so that we bought a drink... More

Bathroom was also very big and clean. One gripe is the room was cold when we arrived and took time to warm up. When we arrived back after long cold walk on... More

We were in Buncrana for a catch up with relatives and so never stay in a hotel. We stayed here after attending a family wedding. It was not planned but I would recommend staying here if you are visiting Buncrana or Inishowen. It is a great base. The room was very comfortable and quite spacious. The view is beautiful. Breakfast... More

The Inn is an unpretending motel with a good value for the money. Parking is plenty (and a necessity), the WiFi was slow. Voilà the good and the bad. Not a given: the heating stayed on all night (also a necessity at a location so exposed to the gales from the sea).

The Hotel was lovely the bar food and breakfast was excellent, staff were good, only problem waitresses not making eyes contact, so we had to wait to gets waitresses attention and didnt think it was appropriate wearing nail polish serving food, but other than that a great place.
