Holidays in Portloe

Situated on the Roseland Peninsula, Portloe is a small and sheltered fishing cove, much unchanged over the years. Once a thriving fishing village, fisherman today still land lobsters and crabs at the harbour.

Due to its steep cliffs and valley-like cove, this concealed village has a fascinating history of smuggling in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Enjoy lunch or dinner at the local pub, The Ship Inn, serving traditional pub meals and fresh seafood. Alternatively, head to the village hotel, The Lugger, for a locally sourced meal, or just for a cream tea on the terrace!
