Prime Golden Vale farm guided at €10,000 per acre
Golden Vale land is still commanding a premium as confidence in the dairy sector shows no sign of abating.
A 65ac residential farm with some modern farm buildings at Grange Upper, Newcastle West, Co Limerick is coming to auction with a guide price of €10,000/ac.
Located three miles from Newcastlewest, off the main Limerick road, the farm is accessed by an avenue with a right-of-way. The residence is an old thatched house in need of complete refurbishment and set in a yard that includes a four-column open haybarn, a four-column walled haybarn with lean-to housing 30 cubicles with an automated scraping system.
Auctioneer John Flynn says the land is top class Golden Vale grazing ground that has served as an out-farm to a thriving dairy enterprise.
The property will be sold at auction on Thursday, June 11 at 3pm at the Ballintemple Inn, Newcastle West, Co Limerick.
Moving south to Co Cork, a 21ac non-residential farm at Ballincollig near 'the real capital' is on the private treaty market with a guide price of between €225,000 and €250,000.
Located approximately five minutes' drive from Ballincollig town centre, the lands for the most part are under pasture with the exception of a 5ac parcel of scrubland that needs attention.
