Donegal farmhouse

Four Irish sisters are looking to sell their blissful home in Donegal and have chosen the increasingly popular raffle system to make the sale.

The idea is simple enough – people pay £10 per raffle ticket with a target of 150,000 ticket sales.

If the total number of tickets sold reaches the target price a draw will take place and the winner will become the proud owner of the beautiful farmhouse.

The raffle is structured so the winner will also receive a £50,000 cash prize.

The sisters – Johanne, Susan, Marcia and Dorothy Gallagher – have also pledged to give 5% of the proceeds of the sale to charity.

The money will go to Beaumont Hospital’s neurosurgery department in honour of their parents Ben and Lyndall who died eight weeks apart in 2018.

Ben and Lyndall ran the hostel next to the farmhouse for years before they passed away.

The stone hostel, as well as a campsite and outbuildings, are also included in the sale along with the farmhouse.
.
The property sits on 1.59 acres between the towns of Donegal and Killybegs.

It is also part of the famous Wild Atlantic Way – the stunning drive along the west cast of Ireland that goes all the way from Donegal in the north to Cork in the south and takes in places such as Galway, Kerry and the Cliffs of Moher.

The raffle is being held by raffall.com.

The listing states: “Picture creating a new lifestyle for yourself from this enchanting homestead on approximately 1.59 acres with sea & mountain views in Co. Donegal Ireland – named the coolest place in the world by National Geographic in 2017. You could work from home, restart the former hostel & camping business or just use it as an escape on your holidays.”

Susan told the Irish times: “It’s lovely to think a person could win this house for just £10, and the £50,000 could be start up money for a new business and a new life here in Donegal. It’s a joyful, soulful place to live, everyone who comes to the house has felt it, there’s something about it.”
