Top-quality land in Meath

An ideal parcel of Meath land has come on the market just 1.5 miles north of Dunshaughlin.

For sale in lots, the 133.5ac holding can be bought in its entirety or in parcels of 90.5ac and 43ac.

The entire would be ideal for the customer seeking to buy a sizeable parcel of land, while the lots should suit the type of person looking to extend an existing holding.

The property is situated just off the M3 Dublin-Cavan Road, five miles from the town of Ratoath and five miles from Ashbourne. The farm is within easy commuting distance of the capital and the airport as Dublin city centre is just 19 miles away.

The farm is all in grass and laid out in five principle divisions fenced by natural hedgerows. Water is supplied by a natural spring. While there are no buildings on the property, it does have a cattle handling yard and cattle crush.

Auctioneer Paul Doyle describes the farm as top-quality sheltered land suitable to all types of farming including tillage, beef, dairy or stud farming.

"It's a decent block of land in good heart that was well farmed by its owner, and in recent years it was very well-minded by the farmer renting the property. It has about a mile of road frontage onto three roads. It is encircled by roads, including the M3 motorway," said Mr Doyle.

Auctioneers JP & M Doyle are guiding the farm at €8,000/ac prior to the auction at the Dunboyne Castle Hotel, Dunboyne, Co Meath, at 3pm on Thursday, April 28.
