    About this property

    • The subject lands are situated on a prime site located just outside the centre of Dunfanaghy, with views of Dunfanaghy estuary and Hornhead. The site has an existing agricultural land use.

      The lands are bordered by existing fences with access to the site from a laneway, which benefits from direct access onto the N56 National Road (West Donegal Coastal Route).

      The site extends to a total of 4.65 acres (1.87 ha) and is laid out over 2 fields, which are generally of good shape and size. The topography ranges in elevation from about 26.1 meters (86.5 feet) above sea level to the south of the lands, and 18.0 meters (59.1 feet) above sea level to the north of the lands.

      Within a short drive, there is the picturesque Portnablagh harbour, the blue flag beach at Marble Hill, Doe Castle and Glenveigh National Park.

      Development Opportunity
      The subject lands have historic planning under planning reference 04/2843 for 101 dwellings. Please note that the subject site included within this sale only forms part of the site which previously gained planning permission.

      This was extended under planning reference 10/30338, however has since expired.

      Due to the location of the lands, the site lends itself to a number of uses including residential, glamping and leisure. The site also benefits from having access to a sewage treatment plant.

      Pre-planning enquiries have received very positive feedback on residential usage, as the site is located within the settlement limit of the town. DCC has advised ‘Considering the site's location within the urban settlement framework of Dunfanaghy, the site lends itself favourably to this residential proposal in principle'. Within Dunfanaghy there are currently no sites which have been identified for residential development.

      Indicative sketches and planning briefing paper can be provided upon request.
