It is never easy to blow your own trumpet – so here is what others have said about us during 2019.
The International Traveller correctly identifies Donegal as one of Ireland’s most picturesque regions.
They featured Portsalon Luxury Camping as one of just seven of the best unique places to stay in the whole of Ireland and suggest that this is ‘camping for people who don’t do camping’! If that sounds like you, why not try us out in 2020.
Unique and Quirky
We rather like our description here as ‘unique and quirky’!
This article by the Irish Road Trip includes 27 places around Ireland where you can try out ‘Glamping’ this year.

The 15 Best Campsites in Europe
We were pretty impressed when we saw this selection of the 15 Best Campsites in Europe from ‘PureWow.com’. There really must be thousands of camp sites around Europe to choose from so Portsalon Luxury Camping must have stood out in their search! Why not try us out during 2020 to see what you think?
Listen to these words from the Irish Times – “Sitting in the summer gloaming, with spectacular panoramic views of Lough Swilly, Mulroy Bay and the Inishowen Peninsula, the sublime feels very much within reach”. They are right – some evenings guests really are treated to a truly sublime experience. Mystical, magical and other-worldly. And once again there it is – the stunning image of our largest yurt (Mulroy yurt) which is selected as the feature image for the article from the 50 listed – way to go Paul McGuckin!

The Best Glamping in Ireland
We are really pleased about our inclusion in this list of eco-friendly glamping spots around Ireland. During the past year we have increased our emphasis on environment and encouraging biodiversity on our site. The option is now available for anyone who books accommodation to purchase a tree at check-out (we will plant it on the site – you can see it on arrival). We are active members of a range of organisations including Birdwatch Ireland, Butterfly Conservation Ireland, Fanad Coastal group, Leave No Trace, the Shark Trust – to name just a few. Recently we have signed up to the National Pollinator plan and have taken many steps to encourage wildlife. Most guests will testify to the humming hedges and the early morning birdsong that are heard here through spring and summer!
The perfect way to end day four of your five-day road trip in Donegal.
