In striking distance of Ennis, Limerick and Shannon airport, an equestrian farm with a period house on 56ac located adjacent to the village of Quin will be attractive to a range of customers when it goes to auction next month.

Rhyne House comes with a guide of €680,000, according to Liam Browne of selling agents REA Paddy Browne, Ennis. The house is at the heart of the holding and the entrance avenue provides access to many of the fields. It comes with €900 of entitlements.

Located about six miles from Ennis, 12 miles from Shannon and 20 miles from Limerick City, Rhyne House was built in the late 1800s and extended in the 1970s. It is currently inhabited but needs modernisation and refurbishment.

It consists of five bedrooms, two large reception rooms, a large kitchen and living area, a utility and shower room, and an upstairs bathroom and shower room.


The holding is laid out in stud farm style in a series of railed paddocks, most of which have access to the avenue or a farm roadway.

Most of the land is comprised of good ground with some softer portions along a stream bordering the property.

The old courtyard to the rear of the house has equestrian accommodation including a lunging ring capable of taking six horses and two old-style stone sheds with up to eight loose boxes.

More general livestock facilities include a haybarn, a holding pen and a cattle crush.

While Mr Browne believes the land on its own would attract a wide customer base in the farming community, he also believes a residential property such as Rhyne House will bring buyers in search of a medium sized holding with a residence of character.

The property will be sold at the Old Ground Hotel, Ennis at noon on Friday, 7 June.
