69ac farm on the market ‘situated in the heart of dairy country’

New to the market is a circa 69ac farm at Kilronan West, Dunmanway, Co. Cork, and is for sale through Lehanes and Associates.

The farm is situated in the heart of dairy country, just 3 miles south of Dunmanway town.

There is good access to the farm up a cul-de-sac, and a tar-and-chip laneway which leads to the farmyard.

2 lots up for grabs

The entire farm is in grass apart from about 2ac at the southern end of the land that is in need of reclamation.

The farm is south facing and mostly level, stated the auctioneers.

There is a traditional-style farmhouse situated in the centre of the holding. However, while the farmhouse is structurally good, it is in need of refurbishment as it has been unoccupied for quite a while.

In addition, the farmyard consists of two slatted sheds, a hayshed and a selection of old stone outbuildings.

The land is being offered in two lots:

  • Lot 1 is 52ac with the farmhouse and farmyard;
  • Lot 2, which is across the road, is 17ac of excellent, newly reseeded grassland.

Great interest

According to the auctioneers, there has been great interest locally, particularly from the dairy sector but also from further afield from individuals looking at setting up an independent dairy unit or outside holding.

This farm is new to the market with a guide price of €650,000 to €700,000.
