  • "The Ferry's is an excellent cottage in an ideal location."

    Everything that was expected with the accommodation was present and correct! It has a lovely area for sitting outside and being able to view the sea and beyond gave the accommodation that extra excellence! The Ferry's is an ideal place for exploration of the area and a restful location if that is required. We will be back! Barry

  • "The owners were very friendly & welcoming."

    We only used one bedroom but our bed was very comfortable and we slept well. The central heating system was fabulous and within half an hour the cottage was lovely and warm. Similarly, there was plenty of hot water. The new walk-in shower was excellent but clients need to put a bath mat down as the bathroom floor tiles are very slippy when wet. The kitchen was very well-equipped. Had we been using all 3 bedrooms I think we would have found the lounge too small and we also thought that it was quite dark. The cottage is situated in a perfect location for visiting the local area. Portsalon beach is truly stunning. This was our first trip to Ireland and we loved it.

The property

Portsalon 0.6 miles.

This cosy detached cottage sits just outside the popular seaside resort of Portsalon on Donegal’s Lough Swilly, and is the perfect location for enjoying a traditional Irish holiday, surrounded by some of the country’s most breathtaking coastal scenery.

The cottage has been lovingly furnished and decorated to offer guests a comfortable and homely holiday.

Step through the front door to find the open plan living area, the heart of the home with a fitted kitchen, dining area and sitting area, all complemented by a multi-fuel stove, echoing the property’s original layout.

Three bedrooms provide a good night’s rest after a day spent on the beach, and on warm afternoons, why not enjoy a refreshing drink and a spot of lunch on the picnic bench to the front?

Nestled under the Knockalla Mountains and parallel to the stunning Ballymastocker Bay, the coastal village of Portsalon is famed worldwide for its state-of-the-art golf course.

Portsalon’s Blue Flag beach provides safe swimming and has been awarded status as the second most beautiful beach in the world, with its golden stretch of sand and crystal clear waters attracting visitors from far and wide.

Hop in the car and take a roller coaster drive towards Rathmullan, which encompasses rugged sea cliffs on the way, while just a few miles north is the lighthouse at Fanad Head.

For one of the most memorable holidays you will ever have, Portsalon is the perfect choice.

About the location


Milford 9 miles; Carrigart 11 miles.

Resting on the western bank of Lough Swilly is the tiny seaside resort of Portsalon, home to one of Ireland’s top golf courses. Portsalon makes for a wonderful base for exploring the Fanad Peninsula, and boasts a picturesque harbour at Ballymastocker Bay, where you will find one of the most spectacular beaches in Ireland. Visitors can try many outdoor pursuits in this region, including golf, surfing, fishing, diving and kayaking, or if you prefer to explore in comfort and style, then the Knockalla Coastal Road encompasses excellent seascapes and lake scenery. The historic town of Rathmullan, south of Portsalon, provides a lovely afternoon out, where you can take a tour of the Kinnegar Brewery and hopefully sample some of the local produce! With something for everyone, Portsalon is a wonderful location for discovering County Donegal and the North West.
