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.
DIY and building projects
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.
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.
There is a static 2 berth caravan on the site. All hooked up with electricity and water. We will purchase the ingredients required for you to produce healthy meals. The area is tranquil and peaceful, a wonderful place to relax and contemplate life.
There are bicycles available for your use. Beaches within 7 km of the property. Activities include mountain climbing, fishing, surfing, kayaking, sea stack climbing, hiking. There are two pubs in walking distance, one of which is Leo's Tavern, home of Enya and Clannad. There is also a local link bus going to the major towns and back daily.
We run a busy B&B and hostel 12 km from the house in Dungloe and are not on the renovation site 24 hours per day
