124ac residential holding with ‘huge potential’ for auction

New to the market and for sale through Quinn Property is a circa 124-acre residential holding with a traditional two-storey stone-built farmhouse.

The property, in Knocknaboley, Tinahley, Co Wicklow, has an adjoining coach house, an array of stone buildings (Courtyard effect) and a farmyard.

The property firm is offering the “superb residential holding with huge potential” in the following lots:

  • 1: C. Residence & yard on circa 12-acres;
  • 2: C. 30.5-acres;
  • 3: C. 37-acres;
  • 4: C. 36.7-acres, including forestry;
  • 5: C. 8.4-acres;
  • 6: The entire.

According to David Quinn, the farmhouse was occupied up to approximately eight years ago and has since “fallen into disrepair and needs extensive renovation”. Nevertheless, he claims that it has “huge potential”.

Accommodation consists of an entrance hall, a kitchen, a parlour, four bedrooms and a bathroom.

Quinn added that the farm has “extensive” frontage onto a local road. It is divided by the road with circa 42-acres, the farmhouse, and outbuildings on the southern side of the road, with the remaining circa 82-acres on the northern side.

Outbuildings and land

Commenting on the listing, he said: “The residence is a traditional 2-storey stone-built farmhouse, which had been unoccupied for some time and in need of complete renovation.”

“There are a range of traditional stone outbuildings as well as a 4-span round roof shed with a 3-span lean-to incorporating slatted unit.”

“The lands are of mixed quality with circa 74-acres of good quality grassland, 35-acres of forestry planted with native species such as Rowan, Birch, Scots Pine and circa 15-acres of rough grazing,” he added.

Outbuildings include an adjoining lofted coach house, stone outbuildings, a 4-bed round roof shed, a 3-bay slatted unit and an open silage pit.

Services and features include ESB (disconnected), a septic tank and a private well.


According to Quinn, the farm is in a “picturesque” part of south county Wicklow close to the Carlow border, 6km from Tinahely and Hacketstown and 4km from Knockananna.

Tinahely is a small town in south Co. Wicklow with “a good range” of shops, services and primary school and GAA club. According to the selling agent, it is 70km south of Dublin and 20km south of Arklow.

Quinn Property will offer the listing for sale by means of a public and online (hybrid) auction on Tuesday, April 12th, 2022, at 3 pm at Carnew Mart.
