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

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
