written by Rachel McLaughlin October 23, 2022

The asking price has been dropped on a quirky glamping site in West Donegal.

The Traighenna Bay Glamping Units in Lettermacaward went on the market in earlier this year at an asking price of €349,950.


The guide price has now been cut to €299,950.

The property includes three one-bedroom glamping units, including ‘Frank The Shipping Container’. Frank is a converted container cantilevered over a lake that has featured on magazine covers and travel websites around the world. The other two glamping pods also have special features to offer. The waterside complex has been one of Donegal’s busiest self-catering sites in recent years.

The entire site (including the three units) is for sale with Campbells Auctioneers Dungloe.
