Sligo Hill Farm for Sale
REA McCarrick and Sons are seeking €3,989/acre for a 94-acre residential hill farm in Carrownadargny, Geevagh, Co Sligo.
According to the estate agents, the property has “huge” potential for a wide variety of activities and farming/commercial enterprises.
They suggested that the hill farm is suitable for livestock grazing, including cattle, sheep, and horses.
Commenting on the listing, they said: “Indeed, because of its elevated and sloping nature, it is a sheltered farm and could facilitate year-round grazing.”
“The property has an average height of 600 – 700 ft above sea level and has a south-westerly aspect, which gives the potential for wind and solar farm operations subject to all the usual planning conditions. There are already a number of wind farms in the locality.”
According to the agents, the residence, a G BER-rated roadside home, has not been occupied for over ten years.
However, extending to approximately 100 m2, it has the potential to be restored to a modern family home.
Its accommodation includes a kitchen/living room, a sitting room, a bedroom/office, three bedrooms and a bathroom. Services include electricity, a mains water connection and a septic tank.
In addition, there are old outbuildings which the owner could incorporate into the house or restore as workshops or a studio etc.

The agent commented: “The farm is all in one lot but split by a local road with about 14-acres on one side of the road opposite the residence and the remaining 80-acres located to the rear of the house.”
“Various options on the amount of land to go with the house can be offered. This part of Co. Sligo drips with ancient folklore and history. It has one of the most striking and scenic landscapes that you could find in Ireland.”
“There is potential to sell the house and lands separately, subject to conditions,” the agent concluded.
