Portsalon Luxury Camping
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 May 2014

This was the one of the most fun overnights we had on our cycling trip along Donegal's Wild Atlantic Way. Felt like a proper nomad, except that I didn't have to pack up the sleeping accommodation.

We were Helen and Sean's first guests and arrived before they were officially open. We really appreciated the hospitality shown. As hosts they were attentive, informative and friendly but distant enough to award privacy.

There is a real sense of being in harmony with nature and the environment here. They have a herb and vegetable garden and a few laying hens. They hope to be able to offer guests any surplus and recycle as much as they can.

The communal kitchen area is spacious with comfortable sofas and dining chairs. There are two 5 ring cookers and full size ovens. A wood burner keeps the temperature comfortable in the evenings.

Helen's photographs of the local flora and fauna provides colour and interest on the walls.

A yurt is a tent. The inside is carpeted with a comfortable kingsize bed and wood burning stove. A basket of wood is provided for your convenience. Battery operated lights and candles create a romantic ambience. A sofa, coffee table and bedside cabinets mean that you can stay organised. A small vase of fresh flowers brings the outside in. There were many extra touches.

Large towels are provided. Bring a torch if you need to visit the toilet during the night.

We slept in Knockalla Yurt with a view across to Knockalla hill. It's the stuff of dreams and fantasies. Pure magic.

Thank you very much Meraid for this fabulous first Tripadvisor review. We were so glad to welcome you here right at the start of our season and are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are lucky to be situated along the route of the Wild Atlantic Way and we hope that there will be many more travellers following in your footsteps (or should I say tyre prints...) on adventures along this amazing coastal route. Thanks for choosing to stay with us and hopefully we will see you again in the future. Happy Cycling!
Helen and Sean
