Myself and three friends visited the upstairs gin bar on Saint Patricks day. Fantastic selection of gins and mixers; with fresh food cooked in the upstairs bar. Great atmosphere in a good location, close to the railway station for those traveling from a little further afield.

The Gin Bar is situated upstairs in the Harbour Bar. Fantastic atmosphere with live music. Went for the first time on Saturday night after having a meal at the Ramore Wine Bar. This is a relatively new bar which has a great selection of Gins, great atmosphere with fantastic entertainment. The food looked amazing but we had eaten next door... More

Wow, this place never disappoints. Any time we travel to the north coast we love to go to the harbour for a fillet steak on the bone, just fantastic. Always cooked to perfection. Menu has been revamped but the old favourites are still on there. Some new choices are also available now and I can't wait for my next visit... More

We were told this was the place to drink Guinness and we weren't disappointed. A long leisurely session at the front bar with a fantastic batman and locals that kept us entertained. Ask for a "dark and stormy" and be delighted

Ok, I'm embarrassed to say I've frequented plenty of bars, in plenty of towns, for plenty of reasons. However the one that has my heart eternally is the Harbour bar. I'm a Belfast man so there is no location bias involved. The bar itself is a stunning untouched Irish wonder. Full of little things to look at and you'll find... More

Harbour Bar is a good old-fashioned boozer with a good selection of beers. Harbour Bistro is an over-crowded noisy eatery where you have to queue to get a table, queue to order your food and wait and wait for it to arrive. Couldn't wait to leave. Don't remember the food - too noisy!

we went into the bar and sat in the snug and had a cup of lovely coffee followed by a drink, we went and sat in the sung with the dog where a roaring fire was the dog curled up in front of it and went to sleep, we had a chat with another couple in there, the dog was... More
