The right spot for horse lovers


Ballina, Curracloe Co Wexford


Four-bedroom residence on seven acres with American barn, outdoor arena and beach hacking

Situated overlooking the Wexford coastline, this compact equestrian property at Ballina, Curracloe has all the modern facilities needed for any horse owner.

Standing on seven acres of post-and-rail paddocks, the property overlooks Wexford Harbour and is only a short distance from the famous beaches of Curracloe, Ballinesker and Cullentons Gap.

Curracloe is a Blue Flag beach, while Ballinesker was famously featured in Steven Spielberg's award winning World War Two drama Saving Private Ryan.

The residence is a 320 sqm two-storey property with bay windows and conservatory.

The ground floor accommodation opens with a large entrance hallway. Off this is the sitting room, which has double doors leading to the sun lounge, which in turn has patio doors to the garden.

The large kitchen has solid oak units with granite worktops, with an archway leading to the breakfast dining area.

Double doors lead from the kitchen to the dining room, which has patio doors to the garden outside.

To take advantage of the property's sea views, the double-aspect living room is located upstairs, making room for one en suite bedroom on the ground floor.

The master bedroom (en suite), two further bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the first floor.

Outside, the property has extensive decking and is surrounded by lawned gardens.

The double garage has first floor accommodation, consisting of two bedrooms and a shower room.

To the rear of the house, the 60m x 40m American barn style stable block incorporates four loose boxes, a tack room and office.

A lofted area has space for fodder storage in the loft and there is plenty of indoor parking for horseboxes and vehicles.

Beside the barn are two outdoor arenas. The larger of the two measures approximately 60m x 20m and is ideal for jump and flatwork schooling on its Wexford sand surface.

The second arena is 30m x 10m and has been used for lunging and winter turnout for horses.

In terms of local equestrian facilities, the new owner will be spoiled for choice.

Local hunts include the Island Hunt and Killinick Harriers, while the Curracloe House Equestrian Centre is only a mile away.

Barnadown Showjumping in Gorey caters for all levels from Pony Club through to Grand Prix, while both eventing competitions and hunter trials take place regularly at Glandoran, also in Gorey.

The property is located two miles from the main Wexford-Dublin road, eight miles from Wexford town and 22 miles from Gorey.

It has an AMV of €1.5m.
