We stayed 2 nights and had 3 rooms. All were large, clean and comfortable. Fantastic staff throughout from checkin to breakfast to restaurant. Bbq ribs are superb. Evening pub is full and fun. Literally cross the street to lovely beach on lough swilly shore. Visit the "gas station" next door - delicious treats await in the cafe inside!

Large rooms, great bar, great food and great service. Friendly and very helpful staff. Excellent breakfast served in nice surroundings. I will be back to stay on next trip to Donegal. 30 minutes drive from Malin Head which is a must see for dolphin and whale watchers.

Room was outstanding, very spacious with a large ensuite. Everything supplied, shower gel Shampoo etc. TV in room - only Irish Channels though. The staff were very helpful. Would not recommend the restaurant. We have eaten here before and should have known better, but we were tired and didn't want to go into town. Ordered the rump steak and ribs... More

Lunched here today with my father as we were passing and it looked nice. Place was quite empty and lacked any kind of atmosphere at lunchtime. Approached promptly by very pleasant waitress and were seated. My father ordered the burger and I went for lasagne. We waited what felt like a fairly lengthy time to get our food. My lasagne...

Returned to the Harbour for our annual golf sojourn in Donegal.From our initial reception to our departure ,the service and attitude of the staff was ,once again,excellent.Kathleen,Hugh and all the staff offer 5 star service with the minimum of fuss....its second nature to them.On behalf of all of the lads,thank you.

We stayed in The Harbour Inn for couple of nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotel room we stayed in (no. 218 )was very spacious and spotlessly clean as well as overlooking the beach just across the road.The food was (in our opinion) delicious and plentiful, all the staff were polite and helpful, nothing was to much trouble.
