We stayed here last summer, a last minute decision. It is a little pub with accommodation and also has a first class restaurant attached. The owner, his son and wife were very welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable looking out over the harbour. It is not the plushest of places that I have stayed in but it is quaint... More

Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Compared to the restaurant in bayview hotel this place is ahead by far in terms of ambience, food and value. Went here for the early bird on Tuesday night. I highly recommend.

After driving for a couple of hours stumbling upon Inn by the Harbour was a great find. Situated near the harbour in Ballycotton the view out to the lighthouse is amazing. The hosts are wonderful and the barman enjoys some good banter. Our large room had a wonderful view and an amazing shower- the sun pours into the room which... More

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst attending wedding. Everything about the inn is perfect. Room was spacious and great views of the harbour. Breakfast was the best ever, delicious, best black and white pudding ever. The lady cooking and serving breakfast was such a delight and so friendly. Highly recommend a stay here.

Lovely ambience and atmosphere. Friendly staff. Good food. Views are lovely from the restaurant. Food was very good but it was expensive. Nice for a treat or special occasion for dinner. Wine list was good but again over priced.

A family dinner for 14 on a Sunday evening. Something many restaurants would struggle with. Not the Inn By The Harbour. The food was superb, the service excellent, all the staff were really friendly despite us being rather a rowdy bunch. And then the view, from two sides of the restaurant you look out onto the Harbour and the lighthouse.... More

We have been coming down to the Ballycotton 10 every year for the last four years and each time we have something to eat here and it is top class. This year was no exception. I was participating for the first time this year and was nervous and cold. We ordered a scone and a pot of tea for two.... More

So stayed here for three nights recently. The place is spotless, beds very comfy and the room we had was huge. Room number 5. Downfalls was the owner, bit of a grumpy old man. Also, theres huge opportunity to upgrade the place and make it a really gem of a boutique style lodging. When we asked about breakfast we were... More

I stayed here last week with my wife. What can I say only that it was outstanding. The room had the most amazing view of Ballycotton Island, and a very quaint fishing port where we watched the fishermen land their daily catch. The room was spotless, you could see that a lot of love goes into the room and a... More
