Portmór Cottage - Malin Head


Sea ViewsFree Wi-FiTraditional PropertyCot & Highchair

A unique, well maintained, historical building, possibly built originally for the harbour master, and is said to be well over 100 years old. It occupies a prime position overlooking the pier at Malin Head, with excellent views over the harbour and beach, and out to sea, as far as Inishtrahull Island. Being so close to the waters edge, the property has a solid wall along its north and eastern boundaries, protecting it from the sea in bad weather.

The cottage itself, occupies the upper floor of the building, with access from the outside by ascending a staircase to the main door, or another staircase via the elevated deck area.

There are two bedrooms to sleep four, a kitchen, a shower room and a spacious living area, furnished with a sofa, and a dining table with four chairs, on solid wood flooring. There is also a TV & DVD. The cottage is well insulated, double glazed and has oil fired central heating for the colder months.

A pleasant surprise; is discovering the elevated deck, which has patio furniture consisting of a table with 6 chairs; and fantastic views over the beach, the pier, the boats, and out to sea. Depending on the weather; it's a really great place to relax, soak up the sun, have a friendly chat over a drink, while enjoying the view and watching the activity below.
You will also know that you are sleeping in one of the most northerly homes in Ireland!

Surrounding Area

Malin Head; though not actually a town, has become a fairly large community, steadily growing  as more new houses are being built. It has always been a strategically important part of the country, where observation posts and signal towers were erected to keep an eye on shipping movements passing the northern coast.

From the Spanish Armada, to the French fleet during the Napoleonic Wars, and more recently, during the two world wars. Before satellite communication, there used to be a radio station here, and there is still an active weather station, which provides important data to local and international weather bureaux.

The most northerly point in Ireland is marked by an old signal tower on top of a hill known as Banba's Crown. - A popular tourist destination;
(-if only to say they've been there!)  From here, probably the best views are looking south at the magnificent vista provided by the Inishowen Hills; though on a clear day, one can see as far as the Scottish Hebrides to the east and Tory Island to the west.

Local Activities

Local activities may include: Hill Walking - (Take the westerly cliff walk from Banba's Crown to Hells Hole and Devils Bridge.), Sub-Aqua Diving, Surfing, Swimming, Fishing - (Fresh water or deep sea angling), Bird watching; - (Look out for the elusive Corncrake), and then there is Golf: - Inishowen has at least 5 courses to choose from; at Greencastle, Redcastle, Buncrana (Lisfannon), and the very popular 2 links course at Ballyliffin. All within half an hours drive.

If you would prefer to see Inishowen from your car, then there is no better way of discovering the scenic delights on offer, than by following the route known as the "Inishowen 100"; which takes one on a tour all around the peninsula, following mainly coastal roads over a distance of roughly 100 miles.

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.
