  • Description


    The property was purchased last year. Currently, there is still much to do clearing the overgrown bushes and trees. We also require people with building experience to start the extension to the existing house.

    The accommodation is a two-person caravan on site. The village has a couple of pubs. The nearest town is 5 minutes by car. Bikes provided for use.

    Donegal is a gem in the North West corner of Ireland. The Wild Atlantic Way really struts its stuff along the Donegal coastline. The county’s incredible scenery and natural beauty is second to none. Our property is in the heart of the Gaelteacht (Irish speaking community) There is a wealth of cultural activities and we are synonymous with fantastic beaches, hiking and biking trails and a wealth of outdoor pursuits.

  • Help


    We have recently begun a renovation project on an old School House in Northwest Donegal in the Gaelteacht. The land was hugely overgrown and though we have begun clearing, it would be helpful to have someone with an interest in gardening and natural landscaping.
