I stayed at the Inn last year. Accommodation is fine (what you would expect for the price), the view from our room was amazing but I'm sorry to report I received the rudest welcome I have ever encountered at any accommodation I've visited in the world. When I arrived and gave my name the owner accused me of having booked... More

Family owned, this is a charming and authentic experience. The family is nice, the food is adequate, and the drinks are plentiful. If you're looking for a place to to spend some time in an immersive and genuinely Irish atmosphere, this is it.

At 7pm on a Saturday evening we showed up at the Inn by the Harbour and managed to get the 'last room available'. It was over the bar, but we didn't mind the mur-mur from down below. But what the owner didn't tell us was that a three-man band was starting at 10pm - immediately underneath our bed, and the... More

Finding ourselves a victim of the weather we were unable to leave so decided to try out the towns entertainment. Was advised of the good pub and great restaurant by the local Lifeboat Coxswain and boy did he get it spot on! Jerrys welcome was just what we needed a couple of pints after and felt part of the scenery... More

3 couples stayed here for a night on a dinner, B&B package ( dinner in Pier 26). It was excellent! out room was on the small side & didn't have a view but we didn't mind. It was comfy & peaceful which are the most important factors. The dinner & breakfast were both fab! both well beyond our expectations with... More

First of all a heads up on the location of this B&B. Don't depend on Google Maps to get you there. We followed the inductions & eventually ended up at a private residence 7km from the correct location way outside Ballycotton where the Inn is situated. All that aside we arrived late (8:30pm) to be greeted by the owner? &... More

I stayed one night this past October at this charming B&B in the non-touristy, fishing village of Ballycotton. This Inn is only a block from the harbour and gorgeous sea views. You check in at the pub’s bar to the right when you enter the main door (the fabulous Pier 26 restaurant is to the left and operated separately -... More

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
