Compact farm with a Kennedy connection

The Kennedy clan and its most famous son, JFK is probably more celebrated in Wexford than in Massachusetts, but this property could well draw some interest from across the Atlantic.

The 45ac residential farm is adjacent to John F Kennedy Park at Ballykerogue, Campile, New Ross in the heart of historic Wexford.

It comes to the private treaty market with a guide price of €450,000 or €10,000/ac.

Located 6.5 miles from New Ross, 22 miles from Wexford town and 23 miles from Waterford, the farm is described by Frank McGuinness of selling agents McGuinness Lambert as land renowned for its fattening qualities.

The property is laid out in one block and divided by a minor county road giving it plenty of road frontage and easy access.


There are about 15 divisions that are well fenced and all in pasture, aside from three fields in tillage.

The residence (pictured above) is a traditional two-storey farmhouse in relatively good repair with accommodation that includes an entrance porch, kitchen, living room, parlour, bathroom, four bedrooms and a boxroom. Water is supplied by a private well and the house is heated by oil fired central heating.

There is a range of traditional sheds and byres including a three-column haybarn, a lofted barn, stables, a garage, a fuel store and calf houses.

Mr McGuinness says the hiolding would make a compact residential farm and also has the makings of a small stud farm.
