Remote Bidding Only On the Day - You Must Pre-Register On Our Website - With Bidder Security Fee Paid By - Wednesday 21ST JULY 2021

Doonfeeny House is large detached 5 bedroom residence, situated on an elevated site with spectacular views over the rugged coastline of the wild Atlantic Ocean in one of the most picturesque parts of County Mayo. Built on a large site, the house and its outbuildings lie just 3 kms from the charming village of Ballycastle and only 5 mins drive from Ballycastle Beach. Lying on the edge of Mayo Gaeltacht, Ballycastle is the home of the Ballinglen Museum of Art.   

Accommodation of the house comprises of approximately 240.74 sq.m. (2,591 sq.ft.) with a large living room, kitchen/dining, bedroom/storage room, games room, 4 bedrooms (one could be an office) and family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and shower overhead. The property is heated by oil fired central heating.

In need of some refurbishment and modernisation, but in the right hands it would make a beautiful family home. It could also become a charming guest house given the elevated, scenic location in this historical area. Planning permission has lapsed for a restaurant development, but there is potential there for something similar, as well as the potential for a totally new build or renovation. There are lots of possibilities, especially if the outbuildings were renovated to extra accommodation.

Knock International Airport is just an hour’s drive away and the towns of Killala and Ballina are 17kms and 30 kms respectively. This is a sizeable property in a beautifully unspoiled part of North Mayo, literally minutes from the Ceide Fields, Downpatrick Head and Dun Briste sea stack.
