Whether you like a fixer-upper or an already fixed-up, there’s something so charming about a beautiful stone cottage, especially in Donegal, where they fit perfectly into the wild landscape.

You can buy these cottages in all kinds of state or repair, some in need of a little TLC, others in need of a roof and windows. These three have thankfully seen a fair amount of love so they’re brimming with original features and only need minimal cosmetic changes.

Take a look for yourself…

 

Tullintain, Bruckless
€165,000

We’ve featured this house before, back in August and genuinely can’t believe it hasn’t sold yet. The interiors give us major The Holiday feels and it was completely renovated in 2007 so you get all the benefits of cottage life – low ceilings, exposed beams, wainscoting, thick walls – without the drafty windows, rising damp and other issues that so often come with old cottages.

Located in the scenic south-west Donegal, it’s a charming three-bedroom home with a snug living room, including a stove, country kitchen, large double room, a single and a twin room, as well as a family bathroom. You can buy additional land with it and it also comes with a number of outbuildings.

The Station House, Carrigans
€109,950

Situated along the River Foyle, right on the border with Co Derry, is this four-bedroom stone cottage. Formerly a railway station house, as implied by its name, it’s small but full of charm.

Inside it holds a surprising number of rooms including a living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and four bedrooms, one of which is currently used for storage. Outside are a walled courtyard and ample outdoor space, it’s a quiet little spot that’s still just 6 miles for Derry city.

Mart Road, Dunkineely
€135,000

This home is more cottage in interiors than in build, but it does have the advantage of coming with a little extra space. Located in Dunkineely, near the famous St John’s Point, it’s a beautiful spot along Donegal’s west coast and just a short drive from Killybegs.

Inside, the house has been lovingly decorated in a neutral, oaty palette. Vertical plank panelling makes the entire house feel cosy, with a cream country kitchen, plus a snuggly little window seat. Four bedrooms and a beautiful little courtyard garden round out this charming property.
