751ac Tipperary tillage farm guiding at €13.5 million

Savills, in partnership with REA Stokes & Quirke of Clonmel, have placed a guide price of €13.5 million on the historic Barne Estate, one of the country’s largest tillage farms in Ireland.

This prime residential and award-winning agricultural property, which is located in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary, is expected to attract “considerable” attention from both national and international purchasers.

It extends to circa 751-acres or 304ha in total, including 631ac of fertile tillage land in a contiguous block, and is for sale in up to four lots.

The Barne Estate offers some of the most fertile and versatile farmland in Ireland, according to the joint selling agents.

Barne Estate

Its tillage operation has a diverse rotation of winter and spring cereals, in addition, to break crops such as winter oil seed rape, winter beans and winter rye.

Its consistent high yields and exceptional quality have earned the farm several prestigious accolades, including the Grain Supplier of the Year award.

With extensive road frontage and internal farm roads, the Barne Estate offers excellent access for agricultural purposes.

The estate includes one of the country’s most historic country houses – a magnificent, Château-style house which dates back to the 17th century and sits amidst beautiful formal gardens and parkland, including a serene trout lake and nature reserve.

Preserved with care, the house retains many of its period features and measures about 16,930 square feet, providing flexible and extensive accommodation over four floors. Complimenting the main house is a range of traditional and modern farm buildings.

In addition to the tillage farm, the estate comprises expanses of woodland offering sporting potential, featuring mature stands of mixed deciduous and conifer species, adding to the estate’s biodiversity and amenity appeal.


Situated near Clonmel, the county town of Tipperary – renowned for its premium farmland and equestrian tradition – the estate’s location enhances its appeal further.

James Butler, Head of Residential & Country Agency at Savills, commented on the sale:

“The Barne Estate has been held in the same family since the 17th-century, making it a rare gem on the Irish real estate market.”

“Opportunities of this scale and quality are few and far between, and we have already seen a high level of interest from a diverse range of potential buyers, including investors, active farmers, and farming companies”.

According to John Stokes of REA Stokes & Quirke, “The quality of land at Barne Estate will not be surpassed.”

“The lands are suitable for any farming purpose, and the size and layout of the farm are excellent with 3 fields being in excess of 75-acres and 13 fields being in excess of 30-acres.”

“The main house, courtyard and substantial outbuildings offer huge scope for further development if so desired,” he concluded.

The launch of the listing to the market follows the 564ac Brownstown Estate, in Co. Meath, with a €9 million price guide – read about it via this link.
