Lovely Day in Portsalon

Lovely Day in Portsalon – photos taken on Thursday 9th August 2012 in the Portsalon area.

Portsalon is situated on the west bank of Lough Swilly and is home to the renowned Portsalon Golf Club – a must for any golf enthusiast. The village, with it’s picturesque little harbour, is located at one end of Ballymastocker Bay which is skirted by one of the most spectacular sandy beaches in Ireland.

Local activities include boating and fishing in the harbour, golf at Portsalon Golf Club, hill walking and cycling. The area makes an ideal base for visiting the Fanad Peninsula and the many hidden beauties of northwest Donegal.

The Harbour also has a quaint spirit-grocers (a legacy of rural Ireland left over from many years ago) where customers can still buy sweets and basic provisions at one end of the counter and quench their thirst at the other end! Enjoy a relaxing break in one of the most unspoilt and beautiful parts of Ireland.
