You Could Own Part Of Your Own Island Off The Coast Of Donegal

Do you ever feel like calling it quits and moving to an abandoned island?

If you answered yes to this, then you’re in luck because Irish property company DNG Dorian have a listing to allow for just that.

The property comes with two cottages, with six-bedrooms between them. Unfortunately, the lighthouse is not part of the sale but how cool would that be?

Located on the rugged island of Rathlin O’Birne approximately three nautical miles off the coast of Donegal at Malinbeg Head.

Here’s the catch though; the island has no services…including water supply, electricity, heating, telephone or sewage treatment. It isn’t served by a ferry either, so you’ll have to have your own boat. Bit grim.

BUT if you’re willing to rough it for a while and have €75k to spare then check out the listing here.
