Cashelnagor Railway Station is a beautifully restored Station House and Waiting Room.. Built in 1902 it was home to a long line of station-masters and their families until the railway closed in 1947. Derelict for over 60 years, the building has now been completely transformed. We lovingly searched the country for old furniture and fixtures and installed modern conveniences to complete what is now a truly 'old Ireland' experience.
It's an ideal base for exploring the Wild Atlantic Way

The space
The building now houses two independent accommodations. The main house (this listing) is where the station-master and his family once lived.

The Station House can now accommodate 8 guests in two bedrooms; the downstairs double bedroom is en-suite and the upstairs bedroom has a double bed and bunk bed. The views from the upstairs bedroom are amazing with one window looking towards Errigal and the other towards the Atlantic Ocean and Tory Island. The large living room, with sofa-bed can comfortably accommodate two. The traditional kitchen and dining room can cater for groups of up to 8 and the kitchen has all the utensils you need to cook a family meal.

We sourced furniture and finishing from all over the country to create a comfortable and traditional style home. Both dining room has a traditional Stanley No 7 stove and the living room also has a stove. The building has central heating throughout. We we have chosen not to install a TV so that visitors can enjoy the experience a true peace and quiet.

Prior to restoration the building had only half a roof, no windows, doors, floors or stairs and much of the plaster-work had disappeared. The building never had running water or electricity so one of our first jobs was to work with the utility companies to install these 'modern' amenities!

My husband Gavin and I have travelled all over the world but still put Donegal top of the list of our travel experiences. We are constantly finding new places and hidden gems.

We now have a couple of airb&b properties in Donegal and we hope our travel experiences help us to deliver what guests would expect from their holiday accommodation.
