Check out these amazing pictures of the Irish countryside this week.

One of the super pictures is of the birthplace of the famous Arkle and one of the most prestigious stud farms in the country is up for sale. It is expected to command a price in the region of €12m to €13m.

Ballymacoll has had many owners and tenants over the years including the Irish Army who occupied the farm during World War II. In 1946 it was bought by Dorothy Paget who never visited Ballymacoll but actively built its equestrian reputation until her death in 1960.
