On the market – four properties in seaside locations in Donegal, Mayo, Wexford and Meath

Glenoory, Downings, County Donegal €450k Savills (01) 618 1300

The guts of half a million euros might seem like a lot of money for a tiny one-bedroom cottage in remote Donegal, and one that needs work.

But with this you also get ownership of a decent slice (44.5 acres) of some of the most beautiful scenery to be found anywhere in the world.

The land gives you 350 meters of ocean frontage and also gives the house a 15 meter driveway. The cabin is said to have been built in the 1960s (although its footprint shows on much older maps) and measures 820 square feet, all on one story.

The front door opens into a dual aspect living room, with a bedroom to one side and an eat-in kitchen to the other, with a bathroom outside.


Rosgalliv, Mulranny, County Mayo

Rosgalliv, Mulranny, County Mayo
€385k Tuohy O’Toole (098) 28000

Clew Bay’s north shore is organized into almost innumerable islands and inlets.

One of these coves, formed by the River Owengarve estuary, lies below this three-bedroom bungalow which has been oriented to the south-west for the best views.

The best views are from the kitchen, where there is an oil-fired Aga and corner windows, and from the bay window in the living room, which also has sliding patio doors and a fireplace. Elsewhere there are three bedrooms (one also with patio doors).

Internal space comes to 1,302 square feet and sits on 0.69 of an acre with grass and a garage. Mulranny is about three miles away.


Glasscarrig Point, Ballygarrett, County Wexford

Glasscarrig Point, Ballygarrett, County Wexford
€430k Quinn Property (053) 948 0000

If you drive the old road south from Courtown to Curracloe, you will be following the coastline without being able to see it.

But here you can turn left and reach a piece of Wexford’s spectacular coastline in a matter of minutes. This two-story townhouse is located on one of those left turns, the one that ends at Glascarrig Point, which is about a kilometer from the property.

Built in 1999, it is C2 rated and has integrated separate guest accommodation, with a ground floor bedroom and living room.

Elsewhere, the ground floor has a living room, conservatory, and kitchen, and there are four more bedrooms upstairs (one with a dressing room and bathroom). The total area is 2293 m2.


Rowlagh, Eastham Road, Bettystown, County Meath

Rowlagh, Bettystown, County Meath
€650k Shane Black Property (041) 981 0848

The people of Meath don’t have much more than 10km of coastline, but they certainly make the most of it, as do their Dublin neighbors. Bettystown, long a seaside resort for Dubliners, is now also a city for working people from the capital.

Rowlagh, on Eastham Road, has plenty of interior space (2,583 square feet) and four reception rooms, so one can be reserved as a home office.

There is also a living room, a lounge and a games room, in addition to the kitchen and four bedrooms on the ground floor (one en-suite). The converted penthouse has two further en-suite bedrooms.
