VIDEO: €295k 1-bed cottage has potential to turn into dream ‘bungalow bliss’

A “charming” 1-bed coastal cottage on circa 1-acre in Melmore, Downings, has hit the market with a €295,000 price tag.

According to Franklins, the selling agents, the property sits just a few hundred metres from one of Donegal’s most famous coastal features – The Murder Hole.

The cottage itself is 10 minutes from Downings, while Derry is 75 minutes away, and a 170-minute journey will take you to Belfast.

The cottage itself dates back to the late 1950s but was renovated in the 1980s.

The selling agent said: “The cottage, in its current state, offers modest living.”

“However, with a large plot, the opportunity exists to turn this compact property into a dream ‘bungalow bliss.”

Accommodation includes an open plan kitchen/sitting room, a second room and an external outhouse, which doubles up as a utility room for the current owners.

With the vendors owning a further 42-acres around the property, the option exists to avail of “ample” room to extend and purchase additional land.


In the selling agent’s words, Downings is “consistently” one of Co Donegal’s most popular coastal towns.

According to the firm, its beaches are “amongst the finest in the county” and stretch for miles.

The town has limited shopping amenities and three “first-class” hotels.

The area is an essential part of the Wild Atlantic Way, circumnavigating some of the “most breathtaking natural” scenery in Ireland.

A few minutes drive away, Carrigart village has a “good” range of local shops, bars, and takeaway outlets.

Meanwhile, Letterkenny, the county’s main town, is about 35 mins by car – with a “comprehensive” range of amenities
