Holiday Cottages, Portnoo

Portnoo, Donegal

Portnoo and its sister village of Narin are a small but attractive holiday resorts on the northern shore of the Dawros peninsula, a few miles along the coast form Glenties. Portnoo is as good a place as any to take the sea air, with the Atlantic rolling in towards the sandy beach which stretches to the east past Narin. Although the village faces north into the Atlantic the hills to the west on Dunmore Head offer very welcome protection.

Looking out to sea the first sight is the island of Inishkeel, which gives its name to the local parish, including the town of Glenties. Beyond Inishkeel one can see the estuary of the Gweebarra River and the southern edge of the Rosses. When the tide is low one can walk from Narin out to the island which is named after Conall Caol, the sixth century saint who is associated with many other places in the southwest of the county. The 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. Inishkeel used to attract many locals to do the ‘stations’, the traditional ritual of walking around sites connected to a saint and saying prayers in his honour.

The extensive Blue Flag sandy beach is backed by an extensive and majestic sand dune system with a well defined primary dune ridge.

Narin & Portnoo Golf Club is a beautiful yet challenging links test, especially in windy conditions. It is regarded as one of the best natural links in the region, with undulating fairways and several elevated greens. Founded in 1930, it is one of the most popular links courses in Donegal.
