3 farms on the market from €400,000 to €900,000

In this news article, That’s Farming takes a look at three farms on the market in Ireland from €400,000 to €900,000.  

First up is the C2 BER-rated Ballinisland House (main image) on 79ac of land in Ballinisland, Foxford, Co. Mayo, with a guide price of €900,000 through Nuala Feeney, managing director of Sherry FitzGerald Feeney West.

The property is set for sale by online auction unless previously sold before 10 am on Friday, July 7th, 2023.

Ballinisland House is what Feeney has described as “a significant residence” in the heart of county Mayo, all on circa 32 hectares of “good” agricultural land.

There is “good” agricultural land spread across two blocks with river frontage and a road between the two blocks of land.

There is a farmyard with a double-bay slatted shed, a large agricultural shed, and a cattle crush.

Moreover, there is a five-bedroomed detached family home on the land, set back from the road with a drive to both sides of the property.

This property boasts “exceptionally” spacious and well-laid out accommodation throughout.

Accommodation includes a kitchen, a utility room, a storage room, a bathroom, a sunroom, a hallway, a living room, a dining room, and five bedrooms, with walk-in wardrobes and en-suites.

According to Feeney, “style, detail, and impeccable workmanship have combined to create the perfect family home”.

“The entire would make an ideal dairy/cattle farm,” the agent suggested.

The property is located beside the famed River Moy, renowned internationally for its salmon fishing.

This property lies in a “perfect” location, less than a kilometre off the N58, with Foxford a mere 5-minute drive and just under 20km from both the towns of Ballina and Castlebar.

Lakeside cottage on 49ac in Galway

Moving to neighbouring Co.Galway is an F BER-rated lakeside cottage, with a waterfront setting, on circa 49ac with a share in commonage.

Guiding at €400,000 and for sale through Cianan Duff of Savills, Glasthule is a set within “impressive” garden grounds with direct access onto Ballynakill Lough, all in a “glorious” setting in Connemara.

Dating from the 1940s, the four-bedroom Glasthule has been a peaceful retreat for many, including the current family, who have utilised the property as a holiday home.

While requiring some upgrades internally, the house, according to the selling agents, offers renovation potential with ample space and grounds to extend if required but ready for immediate occupation.

To the side of the house is a range of traditional stone-cut storage sheds, and there is also a Dutch barn with a boat shed attached to this.

Extending to about 49-acres, the land lies primarily to the north of the holding and is in one ring-fenced block.

The land, of “mixed” quality in nature, boasts a wide range of flora and is currently let for grazing as part of a conacre agreement.

The property also benefits from two shareholdings – circa 16.3ac – in two separate but nearby commonages.

Land & cottage in Westmeath

Meanwhile, a cottage and lands, extending to circa 84.45acres, have hit the market in Hightown, Coralstown, Co. Westmeath.

The property, which is guiding at €500,000, is for sale by live virtual online and public auction on Wednesday, July 12th, 2023, via Wilsons’ Auctions, Kingswood Interchange, Naas Road, Dublin.

The lands are laid out in a number of “manageable” divisions and include an internal farm road.

They are “good” quality grounds, currently all in grass, suited to most types of farming, according to the selling agents.

There is a small farmyard containing a number of agricultural buildings.

Moreover, there is a single-story two-bed cottage near the yard, which is currently occupied with a passing rent of €500 pm.

The lands are located on a minor road just off the M4, being 1km from the village of Coralstown.

It is located in the south of the county on the N4 road, to the north of Kinnegad. The village contains a national school, a post office, and a church.

The property is near the junction of the M6 and the M4 – two of the country’s main east–west roads – and roughly 60 km from the capital, Dublin.
