Collistown 30ac suitable for equestrian operation

A top-quality 30ac non-residential holding at Collistown, Kilcloon, Maynooth, Co Meath, has just come on the market. The farm will be sold by public auction on Thursday week with a guide price of €9,000-10,000/ac.

Located on the Meath/Kildare border, the farm is around 1.5 miles from Kilcloon village and five miles from both Dunboyne and the university town of Maynooth.

The main portion of the land is laid out in one big field, while two paddocks provide smaller divisions.

Access is found via a private laneway off a secondary road. The farm is all in grass and, according to Eamon O'Flaherty, of selling agents Property Partners Brady, Maynooth, it is well maintained, in good heart and well secured with stock-proof fencing throughout. It has been used for grazing and meadowing for quite a number of years.

Customers with equestrian interests might be interested to note that the farm is adjacent to the highly acclaimed Collistown Equestrian Centre, with its state-of-the-art equestrian facilities.

Mr O'Flaherty believes that the holding will attract a lot of attention.

"This is a quality farm with the best of Co Meath land in a very convenient location and should appeal to both local farmers or, indeed, a person looking for a tidy farm only 18 miles from Dublin city centre," he said.

He believes the guide price is reflective of prices for similar parcels of land sold in this general area in recent times.

The farm is for auction in the Glenroyal Hotel, Maynooth, on May 19 at 3pm
