Violet Cottage in Donegal

A beautiful countryside cottage has gone on the market in Co Donegal and can be yours for €245,000.

The charming building and stunning surroundings would make it a perfect getaway for anyone looking to move away from the big city.

Violet Cottage is a thatched bungalow that was built in the late 1700s – although the inside has been modernised thanks to a refurbishment in 2004.

The property includes a large private garden with view of Behy River from patio.

There are some wonderful forest walking trails with a few minutes of the cottage, as well as Rossnowlagh Beach and Murvagh Golf Links -which are within a 10 minute drive.

It is listed on daft.ie, where the listing reads: “The cottage was tastefully refurbished in 2004 to modern day requirements yet it retains many of it’s original features and character.”

Donegal is one of Ireland’s many beauty spots and Donegal Airport was actually named the most scenic in the world thanks to the rugged mountains and beautiful coastline.

That view was actually captured on video by a US businessman as his plane was landing in Donegal.

A daredevil cameraman created a stunning video of the Donegal coastline by rowing his kayak from the mainland to the Owey Islands before heading further out to the Stag Rocks.

Donegal is also a great starting pint for anyone who wants to take on the stunning Wild Atlantic Way – which is the world’s longest signposted coastal drive.
