Sale of 161ac residential farm in Carlow will be a good guide
While the sale of smaller holdings is dominating the farm land market some substantial farms are coming on to the market.
A 161ac residential farm at Hacketstown in Co Carlow will most certainly draw a lot of interest.
Set in one block, the holding comes with a traditional farmhouse and a three-bedroom bungalow, both in reasonable condition, as well as a range of extensive farm buildings.
It comes with a guide price of €8,000 to €10,000/ac.
Located 12 miles from Carlow and seven miles from Hacketstown, the farm is mainly in tillage at the moment, with a small section in grass.
According to Matthew Conry of selling agents REA Dawsons, Tullow, the property is in great heart with no waste. Some of the holding is farmed by the owner and some is let.
"This is a lovely farm that is easy to work and well laid out. It is serviced by an internal roadway and has a constant water supply," said Mr Conry.
