A “top-quality” circa 111-acre residential farm in Co Westmeath sold for €1,510,000 at auction yesterday (Thursday, August 26th).

Post-auction report: Westmeath farm

  • 1: Residence & yard on 12.5-acres;
  • 2: 72.5 acres;
  • 3: 25.5-acres;
  • 4: The entire.

Ahead of the auction, the selling agent, said this is “a rare opportunity to purchase a well-developed farm on some of the very best of land in County Westmeath”.

He said the farm is “suitable for any agricultural purpose”. The owners previously used it for dairying and the cultivation of crops in more recent times.

All lands were recently reseeded in a ryegrass and clover mix. The lands are in eight main divisions and are well fenced.

The farm benefits from deep drainage channels, which offered a drinking supply for livestock and excellent drainage.


The farmyard is on the main block of land and is l behind the residence. The main building consists of a modern 33m x 12m slatted cubicle shed, which provides 45 cubicles and also incorporates a 6-unit disused herringbone parlour double-sided and a dairy with a bulk tank.

The selling agent commented: “This slatted house has been constructed to a very high standard (grant spec) and is a bright airy shed with ample feeding space and external agitation points.”

“There is a further four-bay double slatted shed of concrete construction with a mono-pitch roof and a large silage pit of concrete wall construction finished with a safety rail adjacent to the main shed. “

“This farmyard is in excellent condition and the main slatted unit is suitable for any purpose including the re-establishment of a dairy farm. It would be particularly suitable for the installation of robotic milking.”

Besides, the residence, “in need of modernisation and full decoration”, consists of a three-bed bungalow of concrete block construction.

It has the benefit of double-glazed PVC windows and central heating. Furthermore, the home stands on an elevated site set some 30 metres back in off the road.
