An Portán is a Fáilte Ireland approved guest house in the centre of Dunquin, just a short distance from the Dingle Way. There is a private restaurant on site with a licence to serve wine and beer.
The guest house has a total of fourteen bedrooms, each with direct access onto a courtyard to the rear of the main building. Each bedroom has an ensuite and shower. There are flatscreen televisions in each room, showing all the national Saorview stations. There are also direct-dial phones and tea & coffee making facilities.
An Portán offers residential courses in the Irish language for people at all levels. This provides a good opportunity to practice speaking "as Gaeilge" or perhaps learn the first "cúpla focal".
Those wishing to experience the Blasket Islands are advised to stay a second night in Dunquin to increase their chances of getting a calm sea and catching the ferry over. Failing that, there are other worthwhile loop walks around Dunquin that will make up for any disappointment. Packed lunches can be made upon request and those continuing on the Dingle Way can arrange for their luggage to be transferred ahead of them.
