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

Superb seaside home

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week staying here between Christmas and New Year with some friends. The house is superb, very well equipped and furnished and warm and cosy too. Great sea views and easy to walk to the beach, golf club, local restaurant etc. Booking, checking in and out etc all made vert easy too. Would definitely recommend this home for anyone wanting a quiet escape and would definitely consider booking this property again if visiting Portsalon and the Fanad peninsula

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

  • 5 of 5

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.
