The roof is pitched natural slate and walls are squared coursed sandstone. The interior decor consists of antique pine wooden pews with gallery with beautiful wooden ceiling. Initially Donagheady had their 1st church (built 1600s and known as 1st Donagheady) however this closed due to the poor state of the building.
