There are mature trees along the boundaries and there may be potential for a residential dwelling, subject to relevant planning permission.

“Arklow town has a full range of shops; supermarkets; schools; services; and amenities – along with the Bridgewater Shopping Centre,” David said.

“Gorey is one of north Wexford’s most noted towns, and offers an excellent choice of schools; restaurants; shops; pubs; award-winning hotels; a cinema; a theatre; and a vast array of local leisure amenities, including Courtown and Ballymoney golf clubs.

“North Wexford is a popular destination, not only from a residential perspective but also from a holiday point of view, with family friendly blue flag beaches, fabulous coastal and forest walks, and amenities. The holding is located on the Wexford side of the Wicklow/Wexford border, and is less than an hour’s drive from south county Dublin.

“The roadside holding would appeal to local farmers looking to expand existing holdings, or someone looking for a small rural holding,” David added.

The guide price is: €7,000-€8,000/ac, with David concluding by saying that “land sales in this area are strong”.
