No.2 Knockalla Cottage makes the ideal spot for a relaxing holiday and is ideally located as a touring base.

Portsalon

The village of Portsalon with its little harbour lies midway along the eastern fringe of the Fanad Peninsula in north Donegal. Across the broad expanse of Lough Swilly the hills of the Inishowen Peninsula are visible - during the summer months a car ferry service connects nearby Rathmullan with Buncrana, a route which opens up some interesting day trips possibilities. Fanad Head, with its imposing lighthouse and broad vistas over the north Atlantic Ocean, can be reached in 15 mins by car.

If you look through tourism brochures for Donegal you are almost certain to see a photo of Ballymastocker Bay, arguably the finest beach in Ireland and listed in The Guardian's list of top "ten beaches in the world". With approx 3km of golden sand and surrounded by mountains on one side and one of Ireland's deepest natural harbours on the other, Ballymastocker is an awe inspiring sight. No.2 Knockalla Cottage is located within 10 min walk of this great natural asset - enjoyed in equal measure by walkers, surfers and surf fishermen.

Portsalon Golf Club

Portsalon Golf Club is a a classic links course and combines breathtaking scenery with a challenging and interesting course layout. A modern Clubhouse, enjoying panoramic views over Lough Swilly, is located just above the village's small harbour. A visit to Sarah's Bar is highly recommended as this unique establishment resonates with the particular charms of the Irish pub of yesteryear. Both the golf links and Sarah's Bar are within 5 min drive time of No.2 Knockalla Cottage.

Less than 2 km from the cottages are the superb Ballydaheen Gardens. These Japanese and English style gardens slope all the way down to the shores of Lough Swilly. The gardens meet the shore at the famous 7 Arches - these are a series of seven interconnecting sea caves have been excavated by the action of waves on ancient limestone rock.

What they say

I travel a lot so I'm always looking for interesting places to stay - anything to avoid another carbon copy hotel - and this has got to be one of the best local travel sites I've seen. Plenty of detail, tons of photos, excellent location info and clear pricing - everything I need to make an informed call. Great job and I'll be recommending the site to anyone else I know who's travelling in Donegal.
