Extending to 21.2ac the south-facing ground is in grass and sheltered by fine stands of trees. The place is divided into a number of divisions by mature hedges with a farm roadway servicing all the divisions.

About 25 people attended the auction, and an opening bid of €400,000 saw the sale get under way. Matters came to a halt momentarily at €435,000, and after consultation with the vendors Pat Quirke continued with the auction until the price reached €500,000.
