€300,000 farm on 2ac has ‘endless potential’

Marsh Farm Yard, spanning 2.45-acres, with “endless potential” at Mooretown, Dundalk, has just hit the market with a guide price of €300,000.

According to Sherry FitzGerald Carroll, Marsh Farm Yard retains a “wealth of original features and a real sense of historic character and charm”.

The property now offers “huge” potential for a wide range of uses, including re-purposing for additional commercial use or full redevelopment of existing structures.

The property consists of a range of traditional stone and red brick farmyard buildings dating back to c. 1860, with a modern workshop and converted warehouse store extending to approx. 1168sq m / 12,560sq ft and open paddock, all set on an overall site area of 0.99ha / 2.46 acres.

The Marsh Farm Yard comprises eight traditional stone and red brick buildings of various ages, styles and uses.

Originally developed as the farm yard attaching to the large Marsh Farm, which lies to the east, the yard would have been originally designed as the farm’s centre with an array of single-storey and two-storey stone coach houses, stables, grain stores, barns and lofts, all developed around two courtyards.

A number of the buildings are now partly re-purposed, and in most recent times, the yard has been home to a mechanics workshop with the balance lying vacant.
Eight outbuildings:

  • Grain Store 201sq.m 2163.sq.ft;
  • Workshop (GEA) 111sq.m 1201.sq.ft;
  • Haybarn 98sq.m 1054.sq.ft;
  • Warehouse 204sq.m 2198.sq.ft;
  • Forge 35sq.m 382.sq.ft;
  • Courtyard Loft 217sq.m 2344.sq.ft;
  • Courtyard Stables 125sq.m 1349.sq.ft;
  • Coach Houses 175sq.m 1883.sq.ft.


The property is approx. 6kms south of Dundalk Town, fronting the old Dublin Road (R132) at Mooretown, Dromiskin, Co Louth.

It is approximately 3kms from Blackrock and Dromiskin Village and 6.5kms from M1 Junction 15 Castlebellingham.

The “convenient” semi-rural location offers “attractive” views over the adjoining Marsh Farm and towards Dundalk Bay and Cooley Mountains.
