Have been in here a couple of times, and have always found the service and food to be good. I have never stayed in the accommodation.
I have also attended functions here in the past, and again, service, food and facilities are all really good.

This hotel is a lovely clean hotel with big spacious rooms which are spotless, and the food is amazing but it is designed like a motel, where the rooms are all outside, so to go to the bar restaurant or reception, you have to go outside, and if its raining heavy its not ideal. The room we were in was above the kitchen and there was a constant drone and vibration in the room as a result of a boiler or something, and this for me was a let down, because it really was a nice fresh place, and I would highly recommend the food.

Just returned from 1 night in this gem of a hotel. Room was excellent, no complaints. Staff very friendly. Excellent bar food. Excellent value for money. No complaints at all. It is little out of the town but in fine weather a nice walk, about 25mins. Well definitely return.

Stayed at The Harbour Inn recently with my mum for 6 nights and found the hotel, staff, food, rooms etc to be excellent. We were lucky enough to be given two rooms which had a seperate entrance so it was like a self contained apartment, with two bedrooms which was perfect for us. We ate breakfast and dinner in the hotel every day and never once got a meal that wasn't delicious. The rooms are big, bright and very spacious, the bathrooms are large also with a big comfortable bath and shower. Each and every single member of staff was pleasant, polite, friendly and very very helpful. Will definitely stay here again.

The Harbour is on the Derry Road, about half a mile outside Buncrana. It's not huge, but I find it very comfortable and friendly, and would recommend it. It's just across from "An Trá Bán", or the White Strand beach, so if the weather was kind, you could enjoy all the beach has to offer.

There's a lovely bar there, which serves meals, and my favorite was the "Hawaiian Chicken", but not sure if it's still on the menu. However, all the food I ever sampled there was top notch, and didn't cost an arm or a leg. They used to do a four course meal + a drink for 20 Euro, but again, not sure if that deal is available.

The rooms are very comfortable, clean, with a nice view. It has more or a Motel feel about it. It makes a good base to stay, if your touring around the Inishowen Peninsula. Forgot to mention, breakfast is very good, and the staff are excellent, make you feel at home.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights from 19 July. We were attending a family christening that weekend and booked the hotel on the strength of the reviews posted here. From the moment we arrived we were delighted with both the place and all members of staff. The room was large and very comfortable with free wifi, flat-screen TV, and there was even a small room off the main room like a walk-in wardrobe. We ate in the bar each evening and the quality of food was excellent and very reasonably priced. There are many places to visit in the surrounding area and we will return in the future to spend more time there. We will definitely be staying in the Harbour Inn.
