I've just returned from a weekend at the Harbour Inn, on my first visit to Ireland. From my point of arrival to the time I left I was made to feel very welcome. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. I arrived twelve hours before my friends and had hired a car, so they gave me some... More

We stayed for the weekend at room 208. Very big, warm and bright bedroom. Spacious bathroom, great breakfast, very friendly staff. I would fully recommend this hotel to anyone. I'm always honest in my reviews so have to mention a few things though: Despite booking cheaper twin room, we were told on the phone that they'll bump us to double... More

Stayed at the Harbour Inn for three nights in September. Found the room to be quite comfortable, and large, very clean and the staff were most friendly and helpful. As some have mentioned, it is on a busy road, but is located directly across the street from the beach and lough. If you are driving, the location is most convenient.... More

This hotel is situated on an extremely busy road. There is plenty of parking, but this depends on what's going on in the pub that is adjacent to reception. Understandably if there is a function or big sports day, you may have difficulty finding a space. Access to the car park is in around the back of the Harbour Inn... More

We stayed here for 2 nights over the bank holiday weekend. We wrongly assumed that this hotel was in the town and near the harbour however as we like walking this was not a big issue for us - the only problem being there were no street lights for part of the walk back from town - so either take...
