Portsalon may not be easy to reach in Northern Donegal but I can confirm it's a journey well worth making. Nice friendly welcome and good bar facilities are always a good start. However Portsalon links is the real star. Front 9 along the side of the ocean with a nice mix of short long and memorable golf holes. Some of... More

We played in 45F with 25 - 35 mph wins and it rained most of the day. The course has a great layout and a lot of interesting holes. We would have loved to played in decent weather to give it a better review. The staff was excellent and very accommodating to us before and after the round. Hard to... More

Played here yesterday. Super links course with some of the best holes I have ever played (notably the 2nd!). We got a nice day which definitely helped as I would not want to be playing it on a cold, wet and windy day!!! Some of the views are absolutely stunning! Friendly staff in bar also

We use the restaurant regular which is great, good food at reasonable prices. Lovely friendly pleasant staff. Roisin has done a great job managing bar and restaurant.

A very challenging test. Excellent fairways (when you hit them) and superb greens. A must visit course. Beautiful scenery. Clubhouse bar is decent but the food can be hit and miss.

I am a low teen golf handicap and recently played this lovely little links course. It is gaining a very good reputation in Ireland but is little known of outside of Ireland next to Ballyliffin and Rosapenna. For anyone going to play in Donegal it is a must visit. It is much better value, is a challenging test of golf... More

Recently travelled with a group from Hong Kong. Testing links course but outstanding value for money. Looked after by Eamonn who caddied for us on the first day and became an honorary member of the tour. Also became our Cultural Advisor (pubs, restaurants etc. ) would love to revisit. Frank I
