About the neighbourhood
Portsalon is a typically peaceful Irish fishing village bounded to the east by hills of the Inishowen peninsula, and to the west by Knockallagh Mountain (1200ft). It is on the western shores of Lough Swilly in beautiful north Donegal. An area of immense natural beauty the village possesses a superb blue flag sandy beach, which stretches for 2 miles and a picturesque little harbour, and which looks across at the Dunree Hills, backed by the Uriss Hills.
It is an area of some historical importance situated as it is in the Fanad district, the ancient territory of the Mac Swiney's.
In 1917 the bullion-laden ship Laurentic, was sunk off the coast by a submarine, and amongst the salvage the ship's bell was recovered and can still be seen in Portsalon Church.
To the north of the harbour...
