A lovely, spacious well-equipped property with an amazing view.

We shared the property with some old friends and it was a great place for that. They had the downstairs bedroom and bathroom and we were upstairs. The house overlooks a stunning beach which is lovely for walking along. There is a shop nearby and the beach and Sarah's restaurant are a few minutes walk away. We ate there 2 evenings. The food was very good and the service very friendly and welcoming. It was a good base for exploring the Fanad peninsula and we also took the ferry over to the Inishowen peninsula. All in all a great place to spend a holiday.

A special experience....

  • 5 of 5

It was our first stay in Ireland and we did not know exactly what to expect. Even our arrival in Ireland was like landing in another world . unlike Hamburg city bustle , the clocks tick differently here and the people are incredibly endearing. We had luck with improbable our house , it was 500 meters from one of the most beautiful beaches on the north coast of Ireland . We had unspeakably much space and it was very tastefully decorated and cozy . There really was nothing wrong , even wetsuits and a brand new BBQ were present . The extremely friendly and courteous owner of the house has even specially still worried a huge TV and DVD player for our Junior . We liked would have remained , none of us wanted to go home voluntarily . It was a perfect holiday , thank you very much . We are looking forward next year to come back . All the best :-)

From the Owner

Portsalon has a lovely relaxed feel and is not overcrowded. The house is suitable for golfers as Portsalon golf club is a 2 minute drive from the house. It is great for families also as Ballymastocker, a beautiful long beach is a five to ten minute walk from the house.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : at 300 Metres Nearest Golf : at 500 Metres Nearest Restaurant : at 300 Metres Nearest Beach : at 300 Metres Car: recommended

Great location for families to get away from it all, with beach and shop within easy access. Local attractions in Fanad include: The Fanad Lighthouse; The Great Arch; Sarah's Restaurant & The Stores Bar; Portsalon Golf Club and other nearby courses and of course not to forget Ballymastocker Bay, which was voted as the second most beautiful beach in the whole world!!
