We came to Portfinn to stay our 2nd night in Leenane after a dreadful stay somewhere else. Boy do I wish we would've picked Portfinn to begin with! My husband walked in early that morning hoping to get a room and they not only managed to find us one on short notice, but they also had it ready very quickly.
It's a lovely little place with an amazing view of the Killary Fjord from their common area, which is very beautifully decorated with local (mostly woolen) goods. Our room had a nice view as well and was quite comfortable.
The breakfast was great, very ample with way more food than we needed! I also appreciated their freshly pressed coffee. We also chose to dine at their restaurant for dinner (early bird menu) and were equally pleased. Reasonable prices and the food was amazing. Fresh local killary mussels, cut just minutes away! The lamb and salmon we chose as entrees were also local and both delicious as well as perfectly cooked. The hollandaise on top of the salmon was the best I've ever tasted. We were quite full after the first 2 courses, but couldn't help but to finish our dessert as the ice cream was just as wonderful as the rest of the meal.
I can't wait to stay here again. With the beautiful views, close proximity to the town, and great/helpful service; Portfinn is the perfect place for a little weekend stay.
