Donegal Boardwalk Resort to develop spa, glamping and camping facilities

There are plans for a major redevelopment of the magnificent Donegal Boardwalk Resort.

Sheephaven Bay View Limited has applied for planning permission for a huge upgrade to the popular facility.

A proposed new development at the facility would see the addition of a glamping development.

The proposed facility would include ten glamping pods, five tent sites and ten RV sites.

The works would also see the construction of a reception building with a small shop and a café. The building would also include showers, toilets, laundry and other ancillary works.

The proposal also includes connection to the existing sewage system which will be upgraded as part of the works.

New planning permission has been sought to convert the existing ground floor sports hall to create staff facilities, three apartments, a reception area and a gym.

It is planned to build an extension to create a covered outdoor sports hall.

The existing offices and staff facilities on the first floor are to be converted into apartments with a first floor extension including the provision of skylights in a proposed mezzanine in the existing sports hall to create six apartments.

The current basement storage would be expanded and converted to become a spa facility.

The Donegal Boardwalk Resort currently consists of 27 coastal lodges on 150 acres close to Trá Mór beach.

In 2021, Donegal Boardwalk Resort sold for over €3.8 million after being bought in 2017 for €3.25 million.

Property group Melcorpo bought the complex, which overlooks Sheephaven Bay, last September.
