Kerry farms are a rare commodity on the land market, especially in the north of the county, where much of the Kingdom dairy land is located.

So there will be lively local interest in a compact, productive 40ac residential holding at Ballygarron, The Spa between Tralee, Fenit and The Spa. The place can be bought in lots or as an entire with a guide price of €650,000.

The property includes a three-bedroom bungalow and a series of old-style farm buildings in good condition. The bungalow is well maintained and has excellent views of Slieve Mish and Tralee Bay.

The yard includes a three-column haybarn with double lean-tos and cubicles, along with a slurry storage pit and a range of stone sheds.

The land is “good south-facing ground in a high state of fertility”, with a portion to the north of the farm said to be suitable for ploughing.

Selling agent Eamonn McQuinn of McQuinn Property Services describes the farm as “made for a part-time farmer or a perfect addition to an existing holding”.

“It’s in an ideal location,” he says.

The traditional two-storey farmhouse is in need of repair and modernisation but is spacious and solid.
