A 53ac grassland farm at Tyrellspass is drawing a lot of attention and the property is the subject of solid offers. The farm, which includes a derelict farmhouse and a traditional farmyard, is divided by the M6 motorway, with 46.5ac on the northern side and 6.5ac on the southern.
At present, David McDonnell, of Property Partners James B McDonnell, has an offer of €55,000 on the 6.5ac parcel and one of €445,000 on the 46.5ac portion.
The 46.5ac farm is located on the eastern edges of the village of Tyrellspass on the old N6 Galway to Dublin road. It comes with about 250m of frontage on to this road. Mr McDonnell describes the land as good quality grassland, suitable for any kind of farming, he points out that an adjoining farm is in tillage.
The property is well fenced with its own water supply and, although it was rented for a number of years, it was well looked after. The farmhouse is an old two-storey structure in a state of dereliction, but its presence should ease any planning difficulties. The farmyard consists of a three-bay haybarn and a range of old stone buildings.
"This is a great property on an excellent location," said Mr McDonnell. "The land is top-quality ground and is attracting a lot of interest. The current offers reflect a price somewhere below €10,000/ac which is in keeping with prices to be got at auction."
The private treaty sale continues. It can be bought in two lots or as an entire.
