Beautiful Lakeshore Holiday Home (6 Portinode Cottages)

Cottage with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in Portinode, Northern Ireland

From £980 per week

Luxurious, well equipped, 3-bedroom cottage located on the beautiful shores of lower Lough Erne. Fantastic views over the lake. Free WI-FI.


Note: Highly discounted rates available for multiple nights' bookings. This modern, fully equipped property is part of a small development of traditionally designed, detached bungalows (10 in total). They are set in a quiet location at the bottom of a private lane on the tranquil northern shores of the Lower Lough. The properties share a private marina on the lakeshore. Cottage number 6 is surrounded by its own open gardens and enjoys wonderful views across the lake.

The attractive little village of Kesh is located some 3 miles to the south east. It offers several food shops, pubs, cafes, Take-Aways and restaurants, a petrol station, bank and Post Office. Excellent dining is also available close by at the restaurant on Lusty Beg island, which may be reached by a short car ferry ride.

The Property
6 Portinode Cottages is suitable for a wide range of guests, from families to couples. It has 3 separate bedrooms. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with wc and electric shower. It also has patio doors offering views of the lake. The second bedroom has a double bed, while the third has a set of bunk beds. The main bathroom has a bath.

The kitchen is attractively designed and has all modern conveniences, while the utility room includes a washer / drier. The dining room has a large table with six chairs, and leads into the living room. Although the property is centrally heated, an open fire provides an extra sense of coziness during cooler evenings.

The Wider Locality
Portinode provides an excellent base from which to visit the many attractions of the beautiful Fermanagh Lakeland, and the nearby, spectacular coastline of Donegal, with its wide expanses of unspoilt beaches, sheer cliff faces and crashing Atlantic rollers. Fermanagh is also well endowed with numerous sites of historic interest, such as Plantation castles and National Trust owned stately properties, and ancient monasteries and round towers. The county is also first class for a wide range of water sports.

We were a group of three mature fishing buddies who snore so we needed a 3-bedroom cottage. This was ideal - excellent condition, facilities and located just where we wanted it. We'll be back!

This was our second stay in 6 Portinode Cottage. A super cottage in a beautiful location. Has everything you could need. Perfect for exploring the sights of Fermanagh. All contact with the owner was easy. Would highly recommend and certainly hope to return.

Me my husband and our two girls stayed here for 3 nights at Easter. What a lovely homely bungalow which is actually deceptively large. Everything you could need is supplied, obviously a much loved family holiday property.

Idealic location on the lake with fantastic views, unfortunatley no one there to meet us on check-in and the key was just left hidden for us, creating an uncomfortable feeling should there have been any damage from the previous inhabitants on which we could have been blamed. This was played out as the patio doors would not close properly after being opened unless someone went outside and pushed them. The oven works well enough but through use all its markings have worn off the dials, so setting the temperature is a bit of a guessing game. The dishwasher was simiar, it works well enough but leaks when on. We had been asked by the owner not to arrive until 4pm as the cottage was being cleaned but unfortunatley not to a very high standard, again nothing serious but cobwebs and dirty windows which obviously hadnt been leaned in some time. These are all minor issues which can be easily fixed though, it is a fantatic cottage in a beautiful location, there are plenty of little touches wich make it very homely e.g. crockery, DVD, books etc and I would recommend it to my friends.

Really lovely property far exceeded our expextations and also very well equipped. The location was far enough away from the bright lights for a relaxing and peaceful break, but yet close enough to many attractions such as national trust properties, beautiful walks, restaurants and the also never too far away from Enniskillen, Donegal and Sligo.
