Coastal views: The farm at Lispatrick Lower on the Old Head of Kinsale is being offered in two lots

The Old Head, near Kinsale, Co Cork is a magical place renowned for its beauty and known worldwide for its golf links.

On a note of history, the area is the nearest point of land (18km) to where the RMS Lusitania was sunk in 1915.

Clonakilty-based auctioneer Ernest Forde of Hodnett Forde is selling a farm of 50ac on the Old Head.

The lands are situated at Lispatrick Lower, 6km from the tourist town of Kinsale, less than 1km from Garrrylucas and a 35-minute drive to Cork city.

The non-residential property has spectacular coastal views, and there is a private beach.

It is set out in two divisions which are divided by a public road and which will be sold in one or two lots, one of 11.2ac the other of 38.8ac.

Both lots are road-side and are suited to any type of farming enterprise. The farm is currently in spring barley. There are no services, no stock fencing and no buildings.

The land, which has been rented out for many years, is being sold by a retired couple.

Mr Forde says: “This private treaty sale offers an excellent opportunity for purchasers who are seeking a hobby farm, extending an existing holding or looking for an investment property.

“An offer of €15,000/ac has already been received. Good-quality land on the coast is making €16,000/ac to €18,000/ac.”

Cruary, Co Cork

Further west in Cruary, the same auctioneers are selling by private treaty a residence on 11ac in one or more lots.

Lot 1 comprises a well-maintained bungalow and outbuildings on 1ac, and Lot 2 comprises 10ac of top-quality, low-lying and sheltered land.
