“Just a little harbour”
Reviewed 26 November 2012

A pleasant harbour, but little to entertain. I visited the harbour during the Summer - a fine day - but little happening in the harbour itself. Nice restaurant - bar at the waterside, but nothing to keep me there for long

“One of Northern Ireland's landmarks”
Reviewed 12 November 2012

Donaghadee harbour does not get the recognition it deserves, in my opinion. If you were to find a similar harbour/town setting in France, you would probably rave about it.
Great for a walk in winter and summer

“Beautiful harbour”
Reviewed 22 October 2012

This is a very special place. The harbour looks out to the Isle of Man and Scotland in the far distance. The harbour is a typical protected one with an 1800's style lighthouse.

“Great wee town”
Reviewed 5 October 2012

This harbour has hardly changed except in the colour. A great wee town for visitors to come and walk along the small front. There is also the oldest inn in Ireland, (Grace Neils), which still serves drink in it's small but pleasant surroundings.

“Small Harbour”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

Nothing special about this, if the weather is good then Scotland is visible but that can be seen from most shorelines along the coast.
