“Incredible location and a beautiful house, the perfect holiday stay.”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

As we drove into Portnoo for the first time we couldn't believe our luck at the location we had chosen. Incredible scenery combined with a sense of true escapism had us hotly anticipating our cottage for the next week. We were not disappointed in fact things got even better! The cottage sits right on the edge of Portnoo harbour and whilst we were aware of this when we booked we were still unprepared for having a beach and pier as our back garden. The accommodation itself was fantastic with large kitchen and living area that provided an eye on the world around us. The sleeping quarters were all well sized and all modern amenities (including ping-pong table!) were provided.
There were two groups of us in the cottage me, my wife and young son and my wife's cousin, partner and 3 children. During the poor weather we spent time inside playing games, reading and relaxing and even though there was a television and dvd player we rarely used them. On the better days we embarked on walks/hikes, visited nearby villages and even swam with a pod of dolphins that had decided to pay a visit to the local area!!!
Portnoo supplied all the provisions we required. There is a good-sized shop about 2-3 minutes walk from the cottage, which provided fantastic meat, fish and general household products at very reasonable prices. In the village itself there was a bar and a number of cafe's/restaurants all of which did not disappoint. There was also the golf course which was a bit pricey but which provides a good challenge if you are a golfing fanatic like I am!
I could go on into the tiniest of detail but it is perhaps best to paint this picture with the broadest of brushstrokes - If you have a image of the perfect Irish beach cottage based family holiday then this is probably it - you won't be disappointed.

Fantastic location for Donegal stay. Have stayed in nearby Glencolmcille which was good but this place makes you feel like you own a private beach and harbour. This house has to have some of the best views in Donegal, you feel like you're part of the landscape while sitting in the lounge, must be lovely in Winter. The house has loads of space for about 10 and has all mod cons. Morgans shop just above on main road offers all the basics but also stocks Deli items and a good wine selection, very friendly. As a golfer a short drive (in the car) gets you to one of the best Links Golf courses on the Island of Ireland in my opinion, very Portrush/Castlerock. A short walk down the road takes you to a huge expanse of shallow beach, suited all our lot 10,13,16. Great wetsuited fun. All we wanted from a Donegal stay right on the doorstep of the Harbour Cottage.
