Dear Guest Thank you for calling in to The Harbour Inn yesterday, I am sorry that you did not stay for lunch, however I would just like to clarify something. The young lady you saw ,dressed in a tracksuit not in uniform, helping with the decorations was not a waitress or indeed employed to work in the bar, she was simply there for the Christmas tree, this was why she did not assist you. The signage stating the times children can remain in the bar at night are simply reflecting legislation at the moment. We do pride ourselves as being family friendly, many families eat and stay with us.. Hopefully you might call again in the future , we will try to ensure a more welcoming experience. Kind regards K Doherty

Didn’t stay here but came for food, cozy little place with an extensive menu. The food is a bit pricy for what you get but still worth a visit if out and about - also has a nice range of ales and coffees.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us for the local Cranafest competition. We are glad you had a wonderful time overall and enjoyed your time in Buncrana. I am sorry you were not satisfied with the room rate for your stay with us, however as you booked a twin room for 2 adults online, we assigned you one of our downstairs twin rooms. I am sorry for any confusion this may have caused. Again, thank you for your kind comments and we hope to see you back in Buncrana in the near future. Best Wishes Patricia
