The R741 divides the holding with circa 29.25-acres and the farmyard on the western side, and circa 10.5-acres on the eastern side of the public road.

Speaking ahead of the auction, David Quinn said: “The lands are of excellent quality with free-draining soil and currently all in tillage but suitable for most agricultural enterprises.”

“Both lots have the benefit of a natural water supply. There is a farmyard on the larger lot with a three-span round roof shed, with a three-span lean-to, a large open concrete yard and cattle crush.”

Furthermore, it is 18km from Enniscorthy and 90mins south of Dublin.

72-acre beach farm sells for €1.62m

The property firm sold a 72-acre beach farm for €1.62m at auction last week.

Quinn Property guided the entire holding in the region of €750,000 ahead of the “hotly anticipated” auction.

David Quinn reported that there was “significant interest” in the auction, with almost thirty parties registering to bid.

He highlighted that the property’s “allure and unique nature” promoted interest from various geographies such as the USA, Australia and the UK.

Speaking following the online auction held on LSL Auctions, Quinn said:

“Today’s auction highlights the huge demand for coastal properties in the south-east.”

“The extraordinary level achieved today is driven by a number of factors, such as strong cash reserves built up during the past 18 months and the resurgence in popularity of Irish coastal locations.”
