“Gorey is one of north Wexford’s most noted towns and offers an excellent choice of schools from primary; secondary; post Leaving Cert and adult education; Educate Together; and a Gaelscoil, along with a wealth of restaurants; shops; pubs and award-winning hotels with a vast array of local leisure amenities.

3 divisions

“The holding is in one block with good frontage onto the public road with the farmhouse and farmyard located centrally on the holding. The house and yard are approached via a concrete driveway and are set back 300m from the public road.

“The house is a traditional two-storey, stone-built residence, over 200 years old, to which a small two-storey extension was added in more recent times. It has many attractive original features and will make a great family home.”

There is oil-fired central heating with a private well and septic tank.
