The property

Ballyshannon 3 miles.

Situated three miles from the town of Ballyshannon, this wonderful, stone-built cottage has been converted from an old coach house, on a 200-acre working estate dating back to the Plantation of Ulster in the 17th century.

Finished to a good standard, with exposed beams throughout, this property makes an excellent base for friends and family exploring County Donegal.

The property is set over two floors, with a spacious, wheelchair accessible en-suite family bedroom downstairs, plus three more bedrooms on the first floor.

You enter the property straight into the large, welcoming sitting room, which offers comfy seating and an oil-fired stove.

Off to the left, the dining room has a solid wood dining table and enough chairs to ensure that everyone can sit together and enjoy each other’s company over delicious meals prepared in the well-equipped kitchen.

Outside, to the front of the property, you will find picnic benches, perfect for enjoying meals outside on bright, sunny afternoons and as the property sits on a 200-acre estate, there is plenty of exploring to be done!

Just a short drive down the road, you will find yourself in Ballyshannon, with an array of shops, restaurants and pubs playing good local Irish music.

You can enjoy the superb scenery and if you’re feeling adventurous, why not try your hand at some watersports on Assaroe Lake?

A little further afield than Ballyshannon, you will come across the seaside town of Bundoran, where you can enjoy a game of golf.

Why not head in the opposite direction and visit the Blue Flag beach at Rossnowlagh, take a stroll along the sand and dip your toes in the Atlantic Ocean?
