Sea views up for grabs at Gorey

A fine piece of Wexford farmland overlooking the town of Gorey and the coastline of the south east has hit the market.

For sale by auction, the 22.38ac residential holding at Creagh, Gorey, is being sold in lots and comes with a guide of €300,000 for the yard and three acres and €10,000/ac for the rest.

Auctioneer Michael Kinsella is full of praise for the farm, describing it as one of the nicest pieces of property he has sold for a while.

"It is less than one mile from the centre of Gorey and consists of top-class land," he said.

"It is in permanent pasture and has just been mowed for hay. In the good days this would have made €1m."

It is well-fenced with its own water supply and comes with generous road frontage.


The property has an old farmhouse in need of extensive repair and an unfinished 2,000ft2 dwelling.

The farm includes a two-span haybarn with lean-to, numerous stone buildings and a sand arena, and is approached by a sweeping driveway with mature hedging and trees.

According to Mr Kinsella, the property would suit a range of different customers, including farmers involved in tillage, horticulture or bloodstock.

"There has been a lot of interest particularly from local farmers," he said.

The farm will be sold in three to four lots; two lots of 9.657ac have a guide of €10,000/ac, the old farmhouse on 3.089ac comes with a guide of €300,0000, and the entire.

The auction will be held at the Amber Springs Hotel, Gorey, at 4pm on Friday.
