Of particular appeal, the property sits on a large site featuring a south-facing rear garden leading to a slow-flowing stream at the bottom. In addition, the sale of this property also includes a derelict mid-terraced cottage connected to a two-storey barn both offering highly valuable redevelopment potential into separate living accommodation. If you are looking for a change of lifestyle and a change of pace, this beautifully presented property could fulfil your dreams.

Glencolmcille Village:
Whilst the location enjoys all the attributes of country living, the property is situated on the outskirts of Glencolmcille which is a community-orientated village steeped in history and famed for being the parish of Father James McDyer. This area of Donegal is renowned for its stunning scenery with sandy beaches and rugged coastal features. The majestic Slieve League is approximately 15 kms away and is a highly popular tourist destination attracting a large volume of visitors from all over the world.

Folk Village:
The Glencolmcille Folk Village is on the Atlantic coast west of Donegal Town in the northwest of Ireland. It consists of several small cottages in the Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking area). It was built and maintained by the local people and it is one of Ireland’s best living-history museums. The cottages are exact replicas of those used by local people in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries and fitted with the furniture of this period.
