The outside area seems iffy, but the room was lovely. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is close to town, so a pleasant walk. Not centrally located though. I felt safe and the facilities were clean.

The order of the day is "make yourself at home". I have never felt as able to be myself in the way I have here, all thanks to Laura. The room was clean, simple and comfortable, who could ask more? This is my first visit to Ireland and would definitely recommend Harbour House to anyone!

From the minute I arrived I felt more than welcome. Laura offered coffee and a freshly baked scone (just out of the oven). Check in was straightforward and was shown to my room, given the WiFi password and a map to the town. The location is at the beginning of finisklin which is Sligo's main business park. But you can...

My husband and I stayed one night recently and found it clean, tidy and warm. Laura C was extremely welcoming, inviting and friendly. The breakfast was adequate and there was plenty. We knew it was a 10-15 minute walk into town but saw that as a bonus, having driven all day. Laura C recommended a pub the Fiddlers Creek which...

I was there last weekend. I have to say that I had read some reviews before, which were pretty negative, about the hygiene standard, the breakfast, the distance from the city centre etc., and I had my prejudices, but I totally changed my opinion when I arrived there. First thing, the hostel is 8 min walking from the bus station,...

I was lucky because we were only 2 in a 8 beds dormitory. The bed was really comfy. It was very quiet. Bathroom is ok. The room was warm. The kitchen was great. Breakfast was great as well. It is a 10 min walk from the train/ bus station. I really enjoyed my stay I would recommend if you are...

I have stayed in hostels and hotels all over the world and this is the only time I've ever been driven to write a negative review. Firstly, and worstly, was the noise. A large group was there during my stay and their noise kept me up for most of two nights despite wearing earplugs. No attempt was made by the...

Thank you for your review fozwal and we are very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay, however, as is the nature of Tripadvisor (there is no record of the day that you stayed) we cannot respond to the specific complaint about your fellow guests and the noise that they made or the damage that you say they caused....

Me and my friend, we spent 2 nights in Harbour House and we can only recommend it! Laura is a very nice and helpful host. She gave us many hints where to go, which buses to take, etc. And when we overslept at the day we were supposed to check out, we even got breakfast although it was very late....

Laura welcomed my friend and I on our arrival and was extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was just what we needed, as we were going to be out and about playing music most of the time! We had a double ensuite room and was in great condition. Bed was comfortable and we even had space to hang up our...
