The lands are described by Celia Lamb, of selling agents Ganly Walters, as the best of limestone ground.
All in one block, the farm is currently laid out in 21 grass paddocks with piped water to each and fenced with typical Galway stone walls meticulously built and maintained.
The working farmyard has its own separate entrance.
The facilities include a large concrete yard with a large slatted unit, a livestock shed, a machinery and fodder shed, a range of storage spaces along with modern cattle handling facilities.
