Outbuildings including old farmhouse in 21-acre West Cork sale

Situated in an almost deceptively central West Cork location between two of the main arteries that connect the farthest reaches of West Cork to Cork City, a strong-quality non-residential farm has just come on the market with Bantry-based selling agents Harrington Estates.

The 21-acre farm is located in the townland of Inchireagh, close to the town of Dunmanway. Its size means that it is likely to be as of much interest to a hobby farmer as it is to an expanding farmer.

The excellent road connections make it an ideal outside farm for someone seeking additional acres.

Its collection of outbuildings includes the original farmhouse.

“This property is behind the national school, and it has a good deal of road frontage,” says selling agent Denis Harrington.

The sale of the property has been anticipated, so a strong degree of interest has built up in the market.

The land in this part of the world is characterised by rich, level, low-lying fields, of which this farm is a strong example.

“This is fine ground,” says Denis. “It was a residential holding, and we’re selling the farm only, but that includes some outbuildings and a farmyard.”

The guide price is set at €200,000 (€9,300/acre). These days, when the trend is towards self-sufficient employees working from home, the only question with regard to this property is will the next owner be from a farming background or someone entering the world of small-scale farming?
