3 Donegal homes with stunning sea views on the market for €250,000 and under

If you’d love to have calming water views out your window, check out these three properties in Co Donegal.

Living close to the sea is a dream for many people for a multitude of reasons. Whether you’d love the convenience of a daily swim on your doorstep, you love walking with sand underfoot, or you just love the almost hypnotic view of waves rolling in, it’s hard to deny the appeal. 

In many parts of the country, seaside properties are at a premium, and out of reach for many. However, in Donegal, there are properties that are not just close to the sea, but with amazing views of it, for more affordable prices. 

Here are three properties on the market for €250,000 and under. 

Granary, Leharden, Rathmullan, €249,000

Donegal homes with sea views
This three-bed home sits on a 0.5 acre elevated site, which means its views over the water can be enjoyed from multiple rooms. The ground floor has a large hallway, two reception rooms and a kitchen and dining area. There is also a utility room on this level, and one ensuite bedroom, with the remaining two bedrooms on the first floor.

As well as the sea views from the house, the area has great beaches, including the beautiful Ballymastocker beach. Letterkenny is also around half an hour away by car.

Dún Uisce, Ballyboyle, Donegal Town, €250,000

This newly-built home is not fully completed, but has been left to a builder’s finish, allowing a new owner to make their own decisions about the final look of the property. With three bedrooms and views over Donegal Bay, it has the potential to be a beautiful home.

It has an unusual design, with a curved section and carefully placed windows to maximise the available views. Just five minutes’ drive from Donegal town, it also has plenty of amenities nearby.

Bridge Cottage, Bruckless, €250,000

Donegal homes with sea views

Tucked away in a beautiful, secluded spot looking out across Bruckless Bay, this former railway workers stone cottage is packed full of charm, with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. 

It has been extended, and features two reception rooms and four bedrooms, making it a decent size for a family. It sits on a 0.66 acre site with mature trees, that is crossed by the old Killybegs to Donegal Town railway line, including a triple-arched, Victorian-era bridge. 

Donegal town is just 20 minutes’ drive away, and there are plenty of smaller towns and villages in the immediate area, as well as multiple beaches.
