With stunning views, as well as a separate coach house, equestrian centre, and hot tub, this beautiful home would be a truly idyllic place to live.


Positioned with an elevated view over Donegal Bay, Coolmore Manor House is a late Georgian home set in spectacular surroundings. Set on 11 acres of land, the property has plenty of additional features that set it apart, including an equestrian centre and additional accommodation in a separate coach house.

The main house retains plenty of period features, while refurbishments around 10 years ago mean that it is fully equipped for modern life, and is in good condition.

You enter the house into a bright hallway, complete with fan light above the door, and a fireplace reminding you of the building’s history. The curved staircase leads both upstairs to the first floor and down to the garden level. The drawing room is the main feature of the ground floor, which features sash windows and a fireplace, while there is also a bedroom on this level.

On the garden level, there is a traditional country kitchen with adjoining pantry. Although the current interiors may not be to everyone’s taste, they could easily be updated with a lick of paint. A laundry room on this level provides further functional space, while the dining room, leading to the conservatory makes a great space for entertaining.

The first floor has two additional bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom, as well as a study. Outside there is a hot tub, sauna, and courtyard perfect for outdoor seating. There is also a gravelled walk to the highest point of the property, Bellevista, where you can see panoramic views over Donegal Bay, the Blue Stack and Slieve League mountains.

The coach house has been converted to give plenty of extra accommodation, and feels bright and modern. It has three bedrooms, an open plan kitchen, dining and living area.

The equestrian centre comprises twelve fenced grazing paddocks, a stable yard, an American style barn equipped with feed room, hay loft, tack room, wash bay and eight large stables, six opening out to fenced yards. There is also an outdoor arena with beautiful views. Click through our gallery above for the full tour of this home.
