Decided to treat ourselves to a meal out while camping and plumped for the golf club due to the views out to the beach mainly. After ordering what appeared to be a slightly ambitious menu in a fairly quiet restaurant we thought it was either going to be one of those surprisingly great meals or one you wished you'd just...

Make sure you include this on any golf trip to Donegal. The views are stunning and the golf course is strong. Offering superb value for money it was the highlight of our trip for many in our group (which included Ballyliffin and Rosapenna - which are also brilliant)

This was my second visit to Portsalon and memorable as I parred number 2. This is one of the best links courses in Ireland right behind Carne and Narin&Portnoo in my view. Corrina ran out to meet me after we finished to return my credit card. I appreciate that.There are wonderful views from the tee boxes. The rock outcroppings add... More

Playing Portsalon is a privilege. This course has all the variety you want from a links course it is a severe test of skills but standing on top of the Matterhorn (the 15th) you see a breathtaking picture of what Donegal has to offer. Three courses in the area sell a voucher for 90 euros so you can play all... More

Stayed in Portsalon for a week self catering. We are not folders but we ate in theclubhouse every second night. The food is good, reasonably priced and good quality. Staff were friendly. A much nicer and relaxed spot for a drink.

Course is in a lovely setting, but not up to the standards of Rosapenna or Ballyliffin. Some very nice holes, but fairways a bit patchy and some oddities with screens and fences.

Didn't manage a round of golf but enjoyed the food in the club house. Oh what value. Service was excellent and the price was unbelievable. Lovely views out onto the golf course and the beach in Port salon. Very relaxing place will visit again

Probably not a course to visit if you are not familiar with links golf. Accuracy over distance is essential. Shame round was truncated by thunder and potential lightening - would have got most done if not for two groups of slow players. One pair in a buggie. Seriously! Wouldn't allow play through for four holes. Will have to revist to... More

A good and testing links course well worth the drive North. Spectacular views across to the Innishowen Peninsula with a beautiful curving beach which the course follows for its first few holes. Quality golf and all for only 35 euros a round.

Excellent course. Front 9 along the coast is absolutely epic. Back 9 is inland and therefore a little more mundane in comparison but the coastal views remain on most of the holes. Only 17 and 18 are quite weak boring holes but that doesn't take away from the all round experience. The 2nd hole is a great, great, great tee... More
