The Dolmen House, Drumacloghan, Milford

Award winning, locally inspired unique home of great skill & architectural merit- (Built 2008 – 2011)  

The Dolmen House occupies an elevated site of 0.75 acre with an impressive view of Lough Swilly and the surrounding countryside. Designed by MacGabhann Architects of Letterkenny, a triumph of modern design has produced a highly individual home that is instantly captivating.
