Burtonport/Arranmore Regeneration Project - Phase 2 Buildings

The Councils newly formed Regeneration & Development Team has published exciting plans for new buildings as part of the Ailt an Chorráin (Burtonport) / Oileán Árainn Mhór (Arranmore Island) – Harbour to Island Regeneration Project, which seeks to provide for the transformation of the Harbour area at Burtonport to a multi-user space with modern transport infrastructure, public amenities and services and parking and will develop a high quality shore front recreation, outdoor amenity and event space on Arranmore Island. Phase 2 of the project proposes the construction of a new harbour building which will house Donegal County Council office accommodation, meeting room, public facilities, ferry offices, waiting area and tourist desk facility and a separate enterprise building containing a number of small mixed-use units that will help create employment opportunities and stimulate entrepreneurship.    


The specific nature of the proposed works are:


  • Construction of Harbour Building (Building 1) to accommodate public waiting area and public toilet and shower facilities, Ferry Ticket Offices with associated storage, operators booths and shared kitchen facilities at ground floor level with new Harbour Masters Office, meeting room, wet room and dry room facilities, and viewing platform at first floor level;

  • Construction of Enterprise Units Building (Building 2) to accommodate 4 no. enterprise units with ancillary storage and toilet facilities and upper level mezzanine area ; and

  • All associated ancillary works to include site drainage, connection to public water supply and other services, landscaping, development related signage, connection & discharge to the public sewerage network.


It is envisaged that the Phase 2 buildings will present as an important physical element of the overall development and provide a valuable opportunity to introduce regenerative physical development, a diversification of uses and quality architecture to the marine and harbour environment.


Plans and full development particulars are on display and available for inspection at the following locations/times:
