Patrick Quinn purchased this house in 1993

Why Patrick Quinn chose Donegal

The house was built in the 1950s .

we got the house in 1993 after the owner Sarah's uncle passed away.

and was left it to her. It was a small cottage, we rebuilt it into a 4/5 bedroom house.

we love to spend as much time as we can, our family to go a lot.

we hope that the visitors enjoy the peace and quiet,

we hope our visitors treat it as a home from home

What makes this house unique

Peace and quiet, to look at the stars in at the unpolluted sky,

lovely drives to the local beaches and the local villages and towns.

fish at the trout lake which is beside the house

All the bedrooms and the lounge have a view of the lake.
