I wouldn’t advise looking up what’s available for the same price in Dublin. You’ll only upset yourself.

As house prices in Irish cities remains a cause for concern, anyone who could picture themselves living amongst the Hills of Donegal could potentially get a lot more bang for their buck.

A prime example is Moress Farm, an impressive period home set on 3 acres of land on scenic Inch Island.

For the price of a run down three-bed semi in Dublin 6, you could be lapping it up in a stately home with your own wine cellar, tennis courts and library.

A library Matilda would be proud of.

Currently on the market for €495k, Moress Farm is a four storey home comprising of 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and what seems like an infinite number of elegant reception rooms with original fireplaces. The property also features a tree-lined driveway which takes you past a tennis court and a small orchard of fruit trees.

As well as the main accommodation, Moress Farm also has a recently constructed, separate chalet to the rear of the property with an open-plan design. Also to the rear of the property are the stone remains of an early 17th century house.

Inch Island, where Moress Farm sits is an island in Lough Swilly connected to the mainland by a Causeway Road, famous for its wildfowl reserve.
