DescriptionPortsalon Beach House has a truly idyllic setting in the wonderful beach and golf resort of Portsalon on the Fanad Peninsula. This fine self-catering accommodation overlooks Portsalon Harbour which has a small sheltered golden beach with adjacent rock pools. A few steps from the patio door and you are on the sand. Just beyond the rocks is the vast expanse of golden sands of Portsalon Beach – A Blue Flag Beach on the shores of Ballymastoker Bay. The superb Portsalon Golf Club is a few minutes walk from the front door
Step Directly from the Patio onto the Beach
The accommodation has large windows to maximise the wonderful views and setting. Two of the 3 bedrooms and the main living area enjoy breathtaking panoramic views over the harbour and its sandy cove towards the Blue Flag Beach and Knockalla Mountain. To the front of the property, there is paved patio area enclosed with an iron rail. This is the perfect spot to sit and relax and watch children play on the beach or rocks in a safe environment.
Amenities on your Doorstep
The main amenities of Portsalon village are literally next door to the holiday accommodation. The Pier Restaurant offers good food with great views. Underneath the restaurant is a Watersports Shop where kayaks, pedalos and wetsuits can be hired – it also sells ice cream and soft drinks. Next door is the renowned Stores Bar which serves bar food and has entertainment during the holiday season.
Portsalon Golf Club
You won’t need your car to play a round of golf at Portsalon Golf Club – the clubhouse is a few minutes walk away. Not only is Portsalon a magnificent test of golf, its setting is truly breathtaking. The golden sands along Ballymastocker Bay and the majesty of Lough Swilly and the Inishowen Hills beyond provide the backdrop for almost 7000 yards that will enthral and challenge any golfer. Redesigned in 2001 by Pat Ruddy, dune lined fairways, cannily placed bunkers and well protected greens are the hallmark of Portsalon. You will wonder then, why there are no crowded fairways or difficulty arranging tee times and why green fees are so very, very reasonable.
The Fanad Peninsula
Portsalon is located on the Fanad Peninsula. This ruggedly beautiful peninsula contains numerous bays, glorious beaches, rugged mountains, rolling hills and numerous small lakes.
