It's been a while since we listed similar win a house competitions to this one from Win With Armagh GAA. Usually they're limited to Ireland entrants only but this one is open to residents of Northern Ireland, Ireland, England, Wales and Scotland (thanks to Amayasgran for the link). On offer is a three bedroom holiday home that's located in Downings, County Donegal. It is part of the Republic of Ireland and located on the shores of Sheephaven Bay on the north coast and is a 2.5hr drive from Belfast. We're assuming that the value of the property is the same as the cash alternative as we've been unable to find anything similar via Google.

About The Property

The property is described as a 3 bedroom turn key holiday home. All bedrooms have their own ensuite wilst there's potential to convert the attic space if needed. Thee's a patio area to front with beautiful views over the Atlantic Ocean. The property comes fully furnished and therefore it's ready to rent out should you be the lucky winner. We guess you could potentially live there all year round if you really wanted to? However there are no details about possible rents or how long the holiday season on the north coast of Ireland runs for. Also noteworthy is that "all legal and tax costs, fees or expenses incurred for the transfer of title shall be the Entrantís sole responsibility". With that in mind, non-local entrants will be pleased to know there is a £250,000 cash alternative available to the winner.

How To Enter The Competition

Entry to the prize draw is very easy. All you have to do select the number of tickets that you wish to purchase and answer question about the last time the Armagh senior mens team won All Ireland Football Championship. Note that you're not told if the answer you've selected is correct so make sure you've chosen the right answer - our top top is that Google is your friend. If you're interested in entering the prize draw but not necessarily paying then a no purchase necessary route is offered in the site's terms and conditions. Note that whilst the prize is in Ireland, the promoters are in Northern Ireland so your postal entry will be heading to them.

How Many Tickets?

It's not clear to us how many tickets Win With Armagh GAA are aiming to sell, have to sell or have sold to date. The site does say "The opening and closing date of the competitions are stated on the website. If we have to change either of these dates for any reason, we will update the website accordingly" but we couldn't find these details either. Furthermore the terms state "Entries, including free entries, are limited to 5 per household per competition. Entries may be limited if the maximum number of entries for the competition is reached". However if you go to the competition page to purchase tickets it's possible to add 30 to your basket. The basket also asks for a country location which is fine but folks from Australia, Canada and United States can't enter so why are they options?

Our Verdict

The views over the Atlantic Ocean make this location quite attractive, but perhaps more for a holiday rather than as a holiday home owner. Thankfully a cash alternative is available in this prize draw. It is an expensive draw and there are a few issues with respect to closing dates, extensions and ticket sales that we'd like to see ironed out. We're also pretty confused by the terms stating a maximum of 5 entries but you're then able to get 30 in your basket (we didn't try buying them so maybe you can't, but we didn't want to spend £500+ to find out). Don't expect to see any discounts with this one. If nothing else this prize draw has made me want to visit the north coast of Ireland (as long as it's sunny as in the photos).
