  • "Sea view is on a beautiful site the grounds are well maintained However the inside of the property needs some maintenance done, the layout and size is great."

    The shower in the upstairs top floor needs attention it is quite grotty where areas have been filled with sealant obviously to stop leaks which can be seen on ceiling below, the toilet seat in this en-suite is unsafe as it moves when sat on. The ceiling on the bottom floor small bedroom with the bunk beds has paint peeling off and we had to make sure our child didn’t have its head at that end as had the paint had been touched it would have flaked off. The kitchen is a great size but needs a deep clean, a handle on a drawer fixed as it’s hanging off, some of the trays in the oven were covered in grease so had to be washed by us and even then the grease was still evident The worst thing about our stay was the mattress in the top floor bedroom, the springs are visible!!! I have a bad back and had to sleep with a rug on top of mattress plus then sleep on top of the quilt, it spoilt our stay The bedclothes were clean and plenty of towels , which was great. Also there was no vacuum cleaner or mop and bucket which is essential to have with dogs and children We use holiday rentals twice a year, and have done for nearly 10yrs, we acknowledge that prices at peak times are higher but we were disappointed with this property, and it did not live up to the pictures on line. Amenities for groceries are quite a drive away in Kerrykeel also eating out in Kerrykeel comprises of 2 take aways. The restaurant advertised as a walk away no longer serves food only drink so eating out is limited. Being near the beach is great in good weather but I would advise those with children stay nearer Letterkenny for wet days, as this house location is isolated.

  • "As stated, this cottage is in a fairly remote location but we'll worth the drive."

    Less than 5 mins walk you are on a beautiful large beach. Didn't see more than a handful of others on it during our stay. Cottage really well equipped and there's a welcome basket which is a nice touch. Loads of space inside. Conservatory an excellent eating spot to gaze out and watch the world go by. Night sky, if clear, is tremendous for star watchers.

The property

Portsalon 6.3 miles.

Nestled a few miles from Portsalon coastal townland in County Donegal, Ireland.

This tranquil spot is perfect for a family who wish to wake up each morning to the soundtrack of birdsong and explore the rolling countryside of Ireland's glorious landscape.

Look forward to relaxing in the sitting room which has been individually designed with a minimal decor and contemporary furnishings making it a warm and welcome base.

Or be welcomed into the conservatory, where you can sink into the plush sofa or armchair and get lost within a book, or choose to dine here with views overlooking the garden.

Walk through to the open-plan kitchen/diner, fitted with lovely wooden units and sleek black granite worktops housing a range of contemporary appliances for cooking up some delicious meals.

The dining area is an excellent space for gathering in the evening and toasting to a wonderful holiday with a glass of champagne.

Choose between four well-presented bedrooms, spaced across two floors, with a ground-floor double and family room housing two bunk beds, excellent for a group or families with younger children.

The first floor provides a further super-king-size and king-size, suitable for the couples of the group.

Enjoy a relaxing soak in the corner bath, or have a quick shower to prepare for your day in the family bathroom.

Benefitting from its rural position and placement near the coastline, this property is well-placed for those seeking to explore the lands and enjoy a long walk or cycle with panoramic views.

Further afield is Fanad Head Lighthouse, resting on a rocky clifftop with guided tours available.

This area is popular for those sport enthusiasts who want to get involved with some golfing, fishing, surfing or even kayaking.

Venture towards the historic town of Rathmullan and take a tour of the Kinnegar Brewery and enjoy some samples.

Seaview is the perfect property for remote family holidays.

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.
