An “outstanding and top-quality” non-residential farm consisting of, circa 80-acres in Co. Waterford has been introduced to the market.

The sale of the property, with a guide price of €1.5 million, is being handled by DNG Morrissey Properties.

The farm consists of “high-quality” limestone land and a range of dairy farm buildings, situated six kilometres on the west side of Dungarvan town.

Currently set out in equally balanced paddocks of lush grassland with well-established pathways serving the land, all with access to the farm buildings at the centre of the holding.

The entire farmland is currently in grass with the “very best” of limestone land and natural drainage.

There is road frontage on two sides of the holding on the east and north side, with road frontage on the N72 Dungarvan/Lismore roadway.

“This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a high calibre dairy farm in a well-known dairy farm area, which could also be developed to other uses, ideally set out for a possible equestrian business.”

“Potential is immediately apparent with open plan fields that can be easily worked, and the easy access to the farm buildings situated in the centre of the holding.”

Farm buildings

There is a range of modern farm buildings, milking parlour, dairy, calf sheds and a newly constructed machinery and storage shed, all centred around a good-sized farmyard with gated yards over slatted units.

The cubicles all lead to the modern slatted yard with automatic scrapers accessing the slatted areas from each cubicle shed.

There is a newly constructed farm machinery shed to the west side of the farmyard with adequate space for machinery and storage.

All the buildings are closely situated close to each other around a concrete based farmyard with easy access to all the land from the south, north and west side.
Milking parlour and dairy

Situated at the centre of the farm buildings with cow waiting yard, gated access to the slatted units and gated to the farmyard and grassland.

The milking parlour has the capacity to milk five cows at either side and has close access to the dairy.

Cubicle sheds

There are five cubicle sheds side-by-side, four with automated scrapers and one without.

At the front of each shed, there are slatted units with the option of opening out across the front of each shed or individualising each shed.

There is a total internal space of approximately 5,000sq.ft. (465m²), of cubicle space.

Calf sheds

There are two calf sheds situated at the front of the dairy, again with close access to the cattle crush and the main farmyard.

Machinery/storage/hay shed

There is a “substantial” modern open hay shed/machinery shed/storage shed, situated on the west side of the farmyard with direct access to all the other sheds, across from the slatted units, milking parlour and calf sheds.

Silage pit/slab
The main silage slab is situated at the east side, at the rear of the cubicle building, with a concrete yard to the front and concrete access to all the farm buildings and the main farmyard.
