PHOTOS: Residential stud farm with cattle handling facilities for €1.9 million

An “impressive” residential stud farm on approximately 60-acres (24.3 ha) of prime Co. Meath land is for sale with a €1.9 million price tag.

Coonan Property is handling the sale of Butlerstown Stud, Dunboyne, Co. Kildare, conveniently located between Dunboyne and Maynooth with easy access to Dublin city centre and airport.

The property includes a residence, detached garage, outdoor arena, walker, and stables in an American barn style.

‘You will want what is on offer’

“As soon as you drive through the gates, you will want what is on offer here in Butlerstown Stud.” the property agent explained.

“This fine property is nestled on a phenomenal 60-acres of lush green grass. Set back from the road, the private residence can be found at the end of a winding driveway where it sits proudly on the land.”

The modern home has recently been renovated and extends to 4,295 sq.ft. (399 sq.m.) of “very well proportioned” accommodation.

“The stunning, double-height feature window greets you when you arrive and floods the impressive hallway with light.”


Off the hallway to the left is a formal dining area and to the right, a formal living room. The large hallway incorporates a w.c. and closet.

Follow through to the back of the property and you will find a utility room and w.c. with its own entrance door for practicality. There is also a good-sized family room off the hallway to the rear.
