Loughfad Cottage - Portnoo


Pets AllowedOpen FireLake Views

Loughfad Cottage is a modern 5 bedroom holiday home located close to the shores of Lough Fad on the Dawros Peninsula. The holiday home is a few minutes drive from the neighbouring seaside resorts of Narin and Portnoo which together feature a superb Blue Flag Beach, a top class links golf course and a quaint sheltered harbour with sandy cove. The holiday home also lies just off the route of the Wild Atlantic Way

Spacious Accommodation

The holiday home has 5 bedrooms to sleep 10 people comfortably. One bedroom is ensuite and there is also a ground floor bathroom and first floor shower room.  There is large stylish and fully equipped modern kitchen with an adjacent dining area.  The holiday home has two living spaces – a living room and sun room/ conservatory. To the front and side of the house there is an enclosed lawn.

Narin and Portnoo

The magnificent Blue Flag Narin beach is just 4km away.  At the same location is the Narin & Portnoo Golf Links. 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 new bar and restaurant is proving a big hit with members and visitors alike.

Blue Flag Beach

The golf links is bordered by 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.

Portnoo Harbour is 6km away. It has a quaint sheltered harbour with a sandy beach. The Rosbeg and Pornoo Sailing and Watersports Club is based here.

The Dawros Peninsula

Portnoo  and its sister village of Narin 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.

Ancient Monuments

Just over 2 km from Narin Village is the Kilclooney Dolmen, probably the best-preserved portal tomb in the country.  Another historic site close to the holiday home 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.

Glenties and Ardara

The holiday home is just 12 km east of Glenties and 8 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.

Sheskinmore Nature Reserve

Just south of the cottage 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.

Sheskinmore featured prominently in the 2017 TV series Wild Ireland: The Edge of the World

What they say

Congratulations on an absolutely wonderful site! I was going crazy researching availability on other sites - that did not state price, no. of rooms, bathroom facilities often (even after clicking three or four links) and also did not follow a pattern for each entry. Your site is delightful. I could go through all pages of entries and with the price details given immediately did not need to waste time over entries not within my budget.
