The Deirks at Derrockstown, Dunshaughlin, Co Meath is a 38ac quality grassland residential holding coming to auction with a guide price of €500,000.

Located on a quiet country road just off the N3, the farm is 3km on the Dublin side of Dunshaughlin, 3km from Batterstown and a five-minute commute to the M3 and Pace rail station.

Padraig Sherry, of Sherry FitzGerald, describes the ground as top quality Co Meath farmland. With 445m of road frontage and three independent access points, the holding is laid out in two large divisions of pasture, with two separate farm entrances.

The property includes a yard with a three-span haybarn, two modern large sheds and a range of useful outhouses.


The bungalow is set in a mature and well-planted garden with extensive road frontage and comprises a hall, drawing room, a lounge, family room, two bedrooms, a kitchen and bathroom.

The building needs total refurbishment or replacement, subject to planning permission being granted by Meath County Council. Considerable interest is expected when the property comes to auction as land in this area, close to commuter towns like Dunshaughlin commands a premium price.

The auction takes place on Thursday, May 21 at 3pm at Tattersalls, Fairyhouse, Ratoath, Co Meath.
