The Fanad Peninsula
Portsalon is located on the Fanad Peninsula.

It contains numerous bays, glorious beaches, rugged mountains, rolling hills and numerous small lakes.
Sea angling is available at both Portsalon and Rathmullan - on the Lough Swilly side of the Fanad Peninsula. The Mulroy Bay side of the peninsula is the location of the Meadows Fishery. This is a two acre stream fed lake with good road access and parking space. Fishing is by fly only using barbless or de-barbed hooks. A range of fishing options are available to cater for both the experienced angler and the beginner
The beautiful Ballyhiernan Bay is only 5 km from the holiday home. A beautiful unspoilt sandy beach skirts this bay.
