A residential holding on 40.9ac in the shade of Ben Bulben has come on the market with a guide price of over €400,000.

Castlegal House and lands are located 5km from Sligo town on the N16 Manorhamilton Road and 3.5km from the famous Glencar Lake.

The property is described by auctioneer John Murphy of Tubbercurry as a good livestock farm in a strong farming area and a popular residential area.

The house is a long, two-storey farmhouse in need of substantial refurbishment, with accommodation that includes three bedrooms and two reception rooms.

The land is good, elevated grazing ground with substantial road frontage onto the main Manorhamilton-Sligo road and also on to a country road that divides the land.

It has views over Sligo Bay and, with the required planning permission, there is potential for a number of sites on the farm.

The property was offered for sale by public auction some time ago and was withdrawn after reaching a total of €335,000.

The place is now for sale with a guide of more than €400,000.

It will be offered in lots or in its entirety, with the house of 1.145ac guided at €100,000 and 39.65ac of land guided at between €300,000 and €350,000.

John Murphy believes the quality of the land and the location of the holding in terms of its proximity to Sligo will make it attractive to a range of customers from farming and other sectors.
