Flurry of activity in north Dublin
Dublin farms are like Dublin buses, you wait for one for ages and then three or four come along together. John Cumisky of REA Cumisky has four Dublin farm sales this week.
Today sees a 44ac equestrian farm at Ballyboughal come under the gavel. The property includes stables, a tack room and staff quarters and will be sold this afternoon at the Bracken Court Hotel, Balbriggan at 4pm and guided at €12,500/ac.
John Cumisky describes the next piece as an "interesting parcel of ground". Located between the Dublin Belfast railway line and the Irish Sea the 36.9ac tillage farm at Knocknagin, Gormanstown has direct access to the beach and includes the remains of Lowther Lodge that comes complete with a walled garden. The farm is accessed by an avenue from the old Belfast road.
According to Cumisky, one can step from the tillage field to the beach, which makes it sound like an ideal spot on a hot harvesting day; just a trot from the tractor to the tide.
The farm will be sold at auction on tomorrow, Wednesday October 12 at the Bracken Court Hotel Balbriggan at 4pm.
Another interesting farm is coming to auction on the following day. The 17ac farm at Kingstown, Effelstown, Lusk comes with a 1.13ac site with full planning permission for a dwelling house and no 'local need' requirement. The site is guided at ¤150,000. Located walking distance from Lusk the remaining 15.8ac is made up of good north Dublin tillage ground that is much sought after.
With a guide price of €12,000 to €14,000/ac the farm will be sold at auction on Thursday October 13 at the Bracken Court Hotel Balbriggan at 4pm.
The final farm will be sold on this Friday. Located at Walshestown, Lusk, Co Dublin it is two minutes from Junction 5 on the M1 and beside the M1 business park. Extending to 55ac the farm is in five fields of good undulating North Dublin ground with 128m of road frontage. The holding has just yielded a fine crop of grain.
