While West Cork is rightly renowned for its tourism it is also one of the more progressive farming areas in the country.
Clonakilty and nearby Inchydoney are at the heart of West Cork in an area where rental cars and tractors regularly vie for road space.
However, there will be mainly farmer interest in a lovely piece of ground for sale near Inchydoney beach. Described by Raymond O'Neill of Sherry FitzGerald O'Neill as a substantial block of land containing 21ac of fertile ground, the holding is on the private treaty market with a guide of €12,000/ac.
Inchydoney is about 2.9km south east of Clonakilty and about 44km west of Kinsale. Theisland connected to the mainland by two causeways, so the holding is an area of high amenity.
In this regard Mr O'Neill says the 21ac parcel is being sold as purely agricultural ground and is likely to remain so. "I cannot see anyone getting planning permission for building here any time soon," he said.
The lands are laid out in one block, are well fenced and serviced by mains water. According to the auctioneer while some of the ground is in great heart two smaller fields could do with being ploughed and reseeded.
Accessed from the north side of the island the property has no road frontage but has exceptional views on all sides. Mr O'Neill expects lively interest from local farmers.
