Price tag: 73ac farm in west Cork guiding at €3,424/ac

If you’re on the lookout for a property in west Cork, then, Lehanes and Associates has a 73ac farm on the market, located at Gortroe, Dunmanway, Co. Cork.

Situated 5 miles north of Dunmanway town and just just 40 minutes from Cork City, it’s an executors sale and comes available in two lots.

These comprise:

  • Lot 1: Old farmhouse on circa 17.85ac; and
  • Lot 2: Circa 55.15ac.


Lot 1 includes an old farmhouse situated with approximately 17.85ac of grazing land.

The farmhouse is derelict; however, with the 17.85ac of potentially good land, if reclaimed, this would make an ideal hobby farm holding, according to the auctioneers.

If the same farmer wants to expand, they can also go for Lot 2 which provides an extra 55ac of mixed grazing land right across the public road.

Public auction

The farm at Gortroe will be offered for sale by public auction on September 10 at 3:00pm in the Parkway Hotel, Dunmanway, Co. Cork. The entire is guiding at €250,000 or €3,424/ac.

Daniel Lehane, commenting on the current condition of the property, said: “Much of the farm would have been quite good at one time but, over the years, it has not been farmed as intensively as it was in the past and is therefore in need of reclamation and some drainage in parts.”

However, Daniel further went on to say that it’s an “attractive forestry proposition and there is already quite an amount of forestry in the area”.
