After previously staying in many rented properties and having visited Portnoo as a child and now after visiting with my family, there is no doubt that Harbour Cottage is the best! The cottage has a fantastic location with the beach and rock pools for the kids literally right on the doorstep.
With the nearby golf course and at the end of Narin beach great waves for surfing / body boarding there is lots of fun for older children and adults.
There are great views of Narin Strand, Inniskeel Island and Aranmore all surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. If we were not on the beach the kids had great fun playing badminton or swing ball in the walled garden. The large patio area overlooking the Harbour played host to the odd BBQ and glass of wine or two whilst we watched the swimmers jump off the harbour wall...great fun!
The cottage comfortably housed our extended family of 11. We found the kitchen very well equipped and the kids and adults had great fun playing many a match of table-tennis in the games room. The local shop at the top of the hill was really well stocked and we also enjoyed eating out in the cafe and restaurant in Narin and we would recommend both. We will definitely be back!

Large and practical cottage with an unbeatable location by Portnoo harbour. Great open vistas and perfect for walking and cycling. Super shop close by, and the wood burner kept all warm as the storms blew in. Kids (and adults) enjoyed the table tennis - and we even managed a few autumn swims, so glad it wasn't far back to the warmth! Great escape.

Fantastic location for Donegal stay. Have stayed in nearby Glencolmcille which was good but this place makes you feel like you own a private beach and harbour. This house has to have some of the best... more
