    Very secluded. Location is superb. Beautiful surroundings. Very peaceful. House was as per description. it was clean, comfortable, spacious, and warm. Beds were very comfortable. Firm but not too hard. Slept very well during our stay. ...

    Very secluded. Location is superb. Beautiful surroundings. Very peaceful. House was as per description. it was clean, comfortable, spacious, and warm. Beds were very comfortable. Firm but not too hard. Slept very well during our stay. More than enough to see on the Fanad peninsula over a few days. We did Fanad lighthouse, Portsalon Beach twice, on the final day we climbed Lough Salt Mountain. Reasonably easy climb and incredible views from the top. We tried to get to Great Pollet sea arch but the farmer has closed access and the other route is a bit dependent on low tide. The only minor issue I had was that the cooking facilities are tricky to use unless you're used to induction hob and range cooking. However I did bake a cake in the oven and it turned out really good. And cooked much faster than usual. Other than that, we loved everything about the house.

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.
