Knockalla Lodge - Portsalon


Sea ViewsCot & Highchair

Knockalla Lodge is a modern holiday home with a truly stunning setting near the beach and golf resort of Portsalon in North Donegal.  Nestled in the foothills of Knockalla Mountain, the holiday home enjoys panoramic sea, beach and mountain views – views that encompass Portsalon Blue Flag Beach, Ballymastoker Bay, Lough Swilly and the Urris hills on the Inishowen Peninsula.

Stunning Coastal Views

The holiday home has been carefully designed to enable the visitor to enjoy the stunning vista outside. The main living area and 2 bedrooms overlook Portsalon Beach and Ballymastoker Bay while the kitchen /dining area enjoys views towards Lough Swilly and the Inishowen Hills

The holiday home is on an elevated site 500 metres off the spectacular Knockalla Coast Road. It is just a 5 minute walk from a stunning section of Portsalon (Warden) beach at the foot of Knockalla Mountain. This section of the beach is becoming increasingly popular for beginner surfers.

Just below the holiday home is the Knockalla Caravan Park which has a cafe/shop and kids play areas.

Portsalon

5km from the holiday home – at the other end of the beach -  is Portsalon village and the superb Portsalon Golf Links. Portsalon village is centred around a very quaint harbour that is overlooked by a pub, restaurant and a water sports centre where kayaks, pedal boats, wetsuits and boogie boards can be hired. A charter boat also operates from the harbour and is available for sea angling and sightseeing on Lough Swilly.

Portsalon Golf Club

Just a short distance from the harbour is the Club House of the wonderful Portslon Golf Club.  This classic 18 hole links course is a magnificent test of golf in a truly breathtaking setting. The golden sands along Ballymastocker Bay and the majesty of Lough Swilly and the Inishowen Hills beyond provide the backdrop for almost 7000 yards that will enthrall and challenge any golfer

With the opening of the Mulroy Bridge the 2 championship golf courses at Rosapenna are now just over 20km away from the holiday home. The scenic 9 hole Otway Golf Club near Rathmullan is a 10km drive along the coast road.

The Fanad Peninsula

Portsalon is located on the Fanad Peninsula. This beautiful peninsula stretches north from the village of Milford  via Kerrykeel to Fanad Head and back down to the heritage village of Ramelton via Rathmullan.

It contains numerous bays, glorious beaches, rugged mountains, rolling hills and numerous small lakes. The Wild Atlantic Way – Irelands long distance driving route – hugs the coastline of the peninsula. The iconic Fanad Head Lighthouse is a Signature Point on the route and is now open for tours during the holiday season

Local Amenities

 The holiday home is 5km from the coastal village of Kerykeel and the Rockhill Holiday & Activity Park which features climbing walls, water walkers, slides, rodeo bull, bungee trampolines, indoor cars, soft play areas and loads and loads of bouncy castles.  

Just outside Rosnakill (5km) is the Meadows Trout Fishery - a two acre stream-fed fishery which offers the opportunity for anglers to enjoy some first rate fishing for rainbows .  

Located on the northern coast of the Fanad Peninsula is the beautiful Ballyhiernan beach. 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. It runs regular surf camps during the holiday season.

Day Trips

There are a number of worthwhile day trips that can be enjoyed from the holiday home.  These include the Dunlewey Lakeside Centre, the magnificent Glenveagh National Park and Letterkenny - Donegals main shopping town that also has a multi-screen cinema, karting track, theatre, county library and museum and the modern Aura leisure centre.

What they say

Can I also take this opportunity to say how helpful and user friendly your website is - it is certainly a plus for Donegal. I became aware of it through a friend who has booked a house in Ballyliffin for a number of us attending a wedding in the area in the summer.
