An Turas is a modern 2 bedroom holiday home  located close to the shores of Clooney Lake  on the outskirts of the twin coastal villages of Narin & Portnoo in South West County Donegal. The holiday home is adjacent to the Lake House Hotel and   is just 1km from the wonderful Blue Flag Narin Strand and the superb Narin & Portnoo Golf Links. It is an ideal base to explore the beautiful scenery of South West Donegal.

The holiday home has 2 bedrooms to sleep 7 comfortably. There is also a double sofa bed in a Mezzanine area to sleep an extra 2. The ground floor has an open plan design with kitchen, dining and living areas. The kitchen is fully equipped for a self catering holiday while the living space has an open fireplace and Sky TV.   There are mature gardens to front and sides of the holiday home with lake and golf course views.

A Popular Beach and Golf Destination

Clooney Lake in front of the holiday home borders the fairways of the wonderful Narin & Portnoo Golf Links. The club house of this popular golf links is just 1 km from the front door. It is considered one of the finest natural and scenic 18-hole links courses in Ireland, with sweeping views of Gweebarra Bay.  The clubhouse has been completely refurbished in recent years and its bar and restaurant are popular with members and visitors alike.

Narin Strand

The golf links is bordered by the fabulous blue flag Narin Strand. This wonderful sandy beach is over 3 km long. Just 250 metres off the shore is Inishkeel Island. This historic island can be reached on foot at low tide by crossing a tidal sand bank. The low tide allows you around an hour to visit the sites, before walking back again. It is well worth a visit, with its early Christian churches, holy wells and beautifully decorated stone slabs.

The quaint Portnoo Harbour is just 3km from the holiday home - the harbour is a popular watersports base.

The Dawros Peninsula

Narin and its sister village of Portnoo  are  small but attractive holiday resorts on the northern shores of the Dawros peninsula.   The Dawros Peninsula separates Gweebarra Bay from the Bays of Loughrosmore and Loughrosbeg and its landscape is dotted with numerous tiny lakes and a quilt of low hills. The countryside of purple heather, small patchwork fields, streams and gentle glens makes interesting terrain for the enthusiastic walker.  In addition to Narin Strand the peninsula has a number of fine beaches including Tramore near Rosbeg. The coastal roads on the Peninsula are now part of the Wild Atlantic Way - Ireland long distance driving route.

Kilclooney Dolmen and Doon Fort

Just over 2 km from the holiday home is the Kilclooney dolmen, probably the best-preserved portal tomb in the country. The capstone is over 4m long and the structure is reckoned to date from around 3500 BC – making it much older than Stonehenge. Another historic site naerby is Doon Fort -  an ancient circular stone fortress positioned on an island in the middle of Lough Doon. Although its walls are crumbling, the fort has been untouched for over two thousand years. The walls stand 5m high and 4m thick.

Narin & Portnoo lie just 12 km east of Glenties and 10 km north of the heritage town of Ardara. Both these towns have a good selection of pubs and restaurants and hold festivals and other organised events throughout the year.  The Rosbeg/Portnoo Seafood Festival is held annually in late June.

Sheskinmore Nature Reserve

Just 16 km south of the holiday home is the Sheskinmore Nature Reserve. Sheskinmore refers to a large area of sand dunes, lake and marsh that lies between Kiltooris and Ballinreavy Strand. It is regarded as one of the most important Nature Reserves in Ireland and has been designated as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC), a Special Protection Area (SPA) and a Wildfowl Sanctuary. Sheskinmore is open to the public all year round, and offers families & nature enthusiasts many of the beautiful wonders of nature unique to Ireland.
