Tullaghan House

Take a look inside Tullaghan House – a stunning Irish mansion with a fascinating history.

It is an 18th century property in Tullaghan village and boasts wonderful sea views to the rear of the home.

The seven-bedroom property is near the seaside and sits on two acres of land, located just off the main Sligo to Donegal road.

Tullaghan House

Tullaghan House was built around 1790 by Thomas Dickson and includes many wonderful features including original tiled floor & stained-glass windows.

There are fireplaces throughout the property including the entrance hallway, drawing room and dining room.

At the back of the house there is a fascinating feature – the ‘priest’s hole’ which during the penal period was used as a hiding place for priests.

The mansion also includes a kitchen and pantry, seven bedrooms (six of which have en-suite bathrooms), a reception room, utility room and downstairs toilet.

The outside features a courtyard and numerous old buildings which could be used for a variety of purposes.

It was put on the market for a bargain price of just €220,000 in 2020, with the sale being handled by Sherry FitzGerald.

The listing on the Sherry FitzGerald site read: “Approached by a sweeping avenue the property is situated on 2 acres approximately of mature gardens including old specimen beech and oak trees and extensive outbuildings with enormous potential to redevelop.

“The late Georgian design is complimented by original features including sash bay windows, feature Adams fireplaces, decorative cornicing, coving, horns, cast iron gates and railings.

“Located in the heart of an area of outstanding natural beauty with many activities nearby including surfing, equestrian centre, golf course, & for the fishing enthusiasts the Drowes River is on your doorstep.”

Of course, as the asking price would suggest, the property could do with some work to bring it back to its glorious best.

However, it would be a fantastic investment for any buyers who are looking for a project.
