Daniel O’Donnell’s former luxury home is back on the market at a knockdown price.

The millionaire singer sold the mansion in Co Donegal in 2007 to former Irish Psychics Live boss Tom Higgins for almost €3M at the height of the property boom.


But now the pad at Cruit Lower, Kincasslagh, which boasts stunning sea views, is back on the market for considerably less at €1M.

The home, named ‘Donegal Shore House’, boasts eight bedrooms, eight bathrooms, numerous reception rooms as well as rolling gardens and its own jetty nestling on the Atlantic Ocean.

Sitting on almost a two acre site, it also has a summer house and detached three-car garage as well as twin paved cliff-top seating areas.

It stretches to almost 9,700 square feet.

Daniel and Majella O’Donnell on Room to Improve

O’Donnell painstakingly planned the design of the house which is located close to Cruit Island Golf Club of which Daniel is a member and keen player.


The singer and his wife Majella later decided the house was much too big for them and decided to put it on the market before businessman Higgins snapped it up.

Daniel and Majella, who spend a lot of time overseas in their apartment in Tenerife, bought a more modest property in nearby Meenbanad.

This was the house which celebrity architect Dermot Bannon redesigned for RTE’s ‘Room To Improve’ which proved to be a huge ratings-winner.

Daniel’s reaction at being told the budget for the renovation had jumped from €200,000 to almost €400,000 provided the real entertainment value of the show which pulled almost in 900,000 viewers.

The timing of businessman Higgins purchase of Daniel’s old property in February 2007 proved a little unfortunate as the property crash arrived just a year later.

Higgins later sold the property.
