    We had a wonderful stay in your lovely home - our holiday was made even better whilst relaxing taking in the magnificent view. We enjoyed the quietness of the location. Thank you again.

    The Mercer Family ( Glasgow)

    Dear Jeanne,

    Just  a brief note to say how much we enjoyed our stay in Portsalon and how delighted we were with the house.  It suited our needs really well and was in a great location for the kids to go back and forth to their friends' houses.
    We may want to come up to Portsalon for a longer stay sometime next year and hopefully your house will be available.

    We had a great week and even the weather stayed good.  The house and scenery were fantastic but the warm welcome was the best.

    Thank you for looking after us and I look forward to seeing the gardens at their best.

    "What a great place - And fantastic views!"

    Set in the beautiful countryside just outside Buncrana and on the edge of Lough Swilly, the traditional cottage has been rebuilt and modernised but very much in keeping with the original. The most outstanding aspect is the addition of a good sized lounge with a panoramic view of the Lough and the hills beyond.

    Time passes swiftly when looking out, watching the weather change minute by minute as the showers and sun meander their way across the surface of the water. The Lough is also known as the Lake of Shadows; a very apt description, as the whole look of the area changes so much as the clouds pass overhead.

    As to the cottage itself, the accommodation includes a double bedroom at each end, with a good bathroom with long deep bath at one end, and at the other end of the building, a wet room with a very effective shower. In addition there is a large room upstairs in the attic which our three grandchildren made their own for the duration, and also a "settle" or cupboard in the large living/dining room, concealed behind sliding doors, which housed a double mattress, and which the kids took turns to sleep in.

    The kitchen is well fitted out with almost every type of crockery etc. you might need to use during your stay. Everyone loved the wood-burning stove in the living room which provided copious hot water and central heating for the cottage, and burnt coal, peat or wood, all of which was provided by the thoughtful owners.

    The owners were so friendly, welcoming us to the area, providing a great selection of groceries for us on arrival, and showing us the shoercut to the sandy beach which was only about 200 yards away

    All in all a GREAT place to holiday in, despite the rain and wind, but - what else do you expect in this part of Ireland, I'm loath to recommend it as I want to keep it a secret just for me! I'll be happy to go there again and again!

    Beautiful house with a superb view of Lough Foyle and surrounding area. Moville, Greencastle and Derry just a stone's throw away. (Stone throwing is a great Derry tradition!)

    The pictures of the house did not do it justice. It is a truly fantastic house, clean, spacious with everything you might need.

    The little touches like the welcoming basket of fresh bread, jam, tea, coffee and milk we just couldn't get over. All the literature on places to visit were carefully laid out. TV with all the stations. Great neighbours.

    Thank you for the use of your house.

    We will be back!

    M & S Clarke, Dublin

    There are cheaper services on the net but they tend to be general and not focused on Donegal.
    Your listing on this site has a much greater chance of being seen by potential customers looking for cottages in your area.
