Four-bedroom detached bungalow
Four-bedroom detached bungalow

Doogort is a detached dormer bungalow on an elevated site on Achill Island overlooking the sea and the Co Mayo coastline.

It comes to the market with an asking price of €315,000.

Extending to 135sqm in size, the first level of Doogort consists of an entrance hall with a red-deal wooden floor, a built-in wood kitchen with velux window and a utility room with guest bathroom (shower included).

The dining and sitting rooms are connected by double doors. The sitting room has a cast iron and marble fireplace, while both rooms have clear views of the beach, Slievemore Mountain, and the Atlantic.

On this level there are also two timber-floored double bedrooms, and the main bathroom.

Upstairs, leading off a velux-windowed landing, are two more bedrooms: the master bedroom, which has a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite bathroom, and another bedroom, also with a walk-in closet and en suite.

Both of the bathrooms have velux windows for extra light.

Doogort also has a large detached garage.

The house is within walking distance of the seaside village of Doogort and for those on the lookout for a holiday home this makes for a convenient touring base for the rest of the west coast.

In addition, it would also make for a good family home seeing as a bridge connects Achill Island to mainland Mayo and all its resources, including schools.

Meanwhile, there is a local shop, bar and restaurant in Doogort, while two blue flag beaches are right on the doorstep.

Indeed, it's a good location for outdoor enthusiasts as the local attractions include angling, hill walking, surfing, boating, and even horseback riding.
