Stayed here during the week just past, we were very impressed with the large room and bathroom. The room was tidy and cosy and in a separate area unlike a traditional hotel. The food was nice in the restaurant and unfortunately the bar was closed for renovations. It is well located for traveling around the Buncrana area.

On the main Derry to Buncrana road, the harbour Inn ticks all the right boxes. Friendly staff, a very high standard of cleanliness and very warm and comfortable rooms. Though the place is on the main road,there is no traffic noise and 5 minutes will take you to town center. Get a second storey room and have a splendid view...

Called in for lunch today, they had lunch menu and a la carte menu, great choice to suit everyone. Was very busy due to good weather and mother's day weekend. The two staff members covering floor and bar were so friendly and laid back looking after everyone. Great food and service today and everytime I visit. Best In buncrana.

This is my third time to visit the Harbour Inn, on my second visit I was disappointed with the service which was due to a number of staff being down with the flu, we decided to return again this year but this time we decided to stay as well, we are both so glad we did. Arrival was very pleasant...
