Breathtaking Views

An Teach Illanmore is a luxury modern holiday home with private access to Doaghbeg beach, situated in a stunning area of the Fanad Peninsula – 5km from the seaside village of Portsalon.  The holiday home is blessed with a wonderfully scenic  and peaceful location. From its elevated site above the secluded Doaghbeg beach the holiday home enjoys superb panoramic views over Lough Swilly towards  Dunaff Head and the Inishowen Hills

The holiday home has been carefully designed to make maximum use of natural sunlight -  and to enable the visitor to enjoy the stunning vista outside. All 4 bedrooms together with the dining area and the living room enjoy breathtaking sea views.

Local Attractions

The holiday home is situated in very peaceful location and has direct access down to the Doaghbeg beach.  The spectacular Great Arch at Doaghbeg is a short walk north. Indeed there are numerous caves and natural arches along the coastline in the vicinity of the holiday home – including the dramatic “ Seven Arches”. There is even your own 'private' cave on the beach in front of the house.

Drumnacraig Beach on Lough Swilly, a length of golden sand, is a short walk south. The beautiful Ballyhiernan Bay, on the Atlantic shore, is only 6 km from Illanmore. A beautiful unspoilt sandy beach skirts this bay. This beach is the location of the Adventure One Surf School  - the leading ISA (Irish Surfing Association) approved school on the north coast of Donegal.

More beaches await you across the peninsula on to Mulroy Bay at Ballywhoriskey.

A 7 minute drive from the cottage will bring you to the holiday village of Portsalon where you will find a wonderful blue flag beach and a top class golf course. At the village harbour there is a water sports centre where kayaks, pedal boats, wetsuits and boogie boards can be hired.

The new Mulroy Bridge is 15 minutes drive from the holiday home. This bridge links the Fanad and Rosguill Peninsulas and makes it much easier for visitors to the holiday home to access attractions such as Rosapenna Golf Club, Ards Forest Park and Horn Head.
