Happy Harbour inn
Probably one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. The decor, comfort and friendliness of the staff is something to behold! We dined in the restaurant for both dinner snd breakfast and the standard of the food was a very high quality. Hotel is beautifully situated right across the road from the beach at the very start of Innishowen peninsula. I would encourage anyone to go there!
