About The Owner

We have had this property in Portsalon since 2004 and have enjoyed many wonderful holidays in Portsalon when our two girls were children.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose County Donegal

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.

What makes this house unique

Great views of Lough Swilly

Very Welcoming with a Wonderful View

  • 5 of 5

We found every need met in this comfortable home. We happened to be there on a very rainy day, but it was the perfect place to relax and just enjoy the view. The only thing missing is the Internet, but you can walk down the hill a short way to the cozy pub to connect. So much more to explore! We would definitely go back.

Owner's Response: Hi Annemarie, I am very sorry to hear that the house was not cleaned to our usual high standard. We were let down by our usual cleaner and had a replacement cleaner who evidently did not do a good job. I am sorry you didn't let me know as soon as you arrived as I would have arranged for a thorough clean. Thank you for your feedback so I can ensure this does not happen again.

magnificent views-fantastic scenery

  • 4 of 5

Port Salon is in an area of great natural beauty and 4 HARBOUR HEIGHTS is a really lovely home to stay in and enjoy. Plenty of walks and drives to pass the time appreciating the marvellous coast line.

Nice quite get-a-way in quaint Portsalon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in early June. Was early in the season so the place was relatively uninhabited. The view from the sun porch overlooking the beach was spectacular. The house is equipped with everything needed and is spacious and comfortable. The drives along the Wild Atlantic Way are beautiful. Would recommend.

Location

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!!
