Property: A place to call your very own in beautiful Gweedore, Co Donegal

Beulah-Anne Sinton

When it comes to family holidays, you could say that most people here are creatures of habit. 

We don’t always want to travel too far, especially when children are involved and time is a bit on the short side. And we sometimes shudder at the prospect of late night treks to the airport. That’s precisely why Donegal has stayed so close to our hearts since the dawn of the great family holiday.

Now imagine having a permanent base in Co Donegal. One that you could retreat to the very moment you longed for some fresh air along the Wild Atlantic Way, a hike in Glenveagh National Park or the serenity and space to brush up on your Irish in the Gaeltacht.

This charming chalet style property at Stranacorkra in Derrybeg represents such an opportunity. It is a three bedroom property priced at €75,000/£60,000 in the heart of the Donegal Gaeltacht on the Wild Atlantic Way route.

It’s situated on the main coast road and is a short walk from Port Arthur beach. 

It meanwhile has everything you need including a fully fitted kitchen, oil fire central heating and even a traditional cottage style open fireplace.

There’s also a back yard, garden and two parking spaces for your friends and family. 

There is currently a small extension to the property that needs retention, hence the low asking price.

Derrybeg, or Doirí Beaga is a small Gaeltacht village and townland. It’s home to RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta regional studios, a GAA club and a golf club. 

As well as the stunning landscapes right on your doorstep, there’s a wealth of famous sites to explore in the surrounding Donegal area including Mount Errigal, Poison Glen and of course, beautiful Glenveagh Castle. 

Given its location and asking price, interest in expected to be high. For more information contact McBride Auctioneers today on 00353 749531666
