Portarthur Cottage is a holiday cottages located in Derrybeg  in West Donegal.  On the beautiful coastline around Derrybeg you can unwind, walk the beautiful sandy beaches and mountains, go cycling, fishing, golfing or just take a leisurely boat trip to the nearby Gola and Tory Islands. The cottage is named after Portarthur beach – one of the finest beaches in Donegal.

Derrybeg and the neighbouring Bunbeg village are in the heart of the Gweedore Gaeltacht. The Irish Language has survived in this area -  along with much of the traditional Irish Culture that has now been lost to many other areas of the County

The Gweedore 9-hole Golf Club is only five minutes from door of the holiday cottage and fishing in the local lakes and rivers is a popular local activity.

What they say

This site is a dream to use; it has everything in place in a way that is easy to find. All the information I want is easily accessible and having numerous photos really gives you a good idea of the property. Looked at other sites and after a couple of minutes gave up. Your site has been very well thought through.
