Lunch at Portsalon Golf Club was the low point of an otherwise superb holiday. The catering is straight out of the 1970s, the service slow and indifferent and the decor looks like every expense has been spared - grubby, worn carpets and stained seats abound. The food was the sort of over-cooked, tasteless slop reminiscent of school dinners. The hake... More

The golf course is one of the best in the north west of Ireland. In excellent condition and very reasonable green fees. Buggies and trolleys are available. The clubhouse has a well stocked bar and very good restaurant facility - the menu was very satisfying and the staff were charming. Well worth a visit.

This is a golf course for people who want some peace and quiet while golfing. Go to Portsalon on a Monday Tuesday Thursday or Friday and you will feel you are alone on the golf course. This is a real test off Yellow or white if you choose green then fairways a within reach of the handicap golfer.

We always eat here great place for good food. Mainly bar type food. Good for kids menu. Sunday lunch great 3 course 15 euro. They also have another menu if you don't want full lunch. Usually very busy which is good sign. Friendly happy staff another plus.

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.
