DescriptionGolf Lodge is a 4 bedroom detached beach property on a large private secluded site in the seaside village of Portsalon on the Fanad Peninsula. Perched on the water’s edge and beside Portsalon Golf Club, this modern house has breathtaking panoramic views over Ballymastocker Bay and Lough Swilly towards Knockalla Mountain and Dunree Fort. The house is a tranquil base to relax or to explore north Donegal and the Wild Atlantic Way.
Golf Links and Blue Flag Beach on your Doorstep
The house boasts its own private tennis court. If tennis is not your thing, a 1 minute walk from the house will have you on the first tee of Portsalon 18 hole golf links. Alternatively, enjoy a long walk on the award winning Ballymastocker blue flag beach. For a longer walk take to the surrounding hills and coastal paths. This part of the Wild Atlantic Way is a haven for walkers, photographers, nature lovers and bird watchers. For those who enjoy water sports this is an ideal location for surfing, stand-up paddling, kayaking, swimming and sea angling.
If you are too busy enjoying yourself or don’t want to cook (or drive), the house is extremely convenient to local eateries and pubs. Following your round of golf or beach walk, adjourn to the clubhouse and bar of Portsalon Golf Club for a pint and food. Alternatively a 3 minute walk will take you to The Stores pub serving good food in a relaxed atmosphere. Next door is The Pier (Sarah’s) Restaurant and the adjacent local takeaway will satisfy your longing for seaside fish and chips! A 10 minute walk will also take you down to the local shop at Portsalon Crossroads which has a deli, coffee and baked goods. You can also go further afield (10 minute drive) to the Fanad Lodge.
