Supermarket, land and residence on offer in east Limerick farm sale
This residential 59-acre Co Limerick sale includes 26 acres, above, and a supermarket, at Main Street, Murroe.

An interesting property in two parts, separated by a distance of 4.5km, located near the Limerick-Tipperary border, is attracting a lot of attention.

“There are two sections to this property,” says James Lee of Newport-based auctioneers REA John Lee.

“There are 26 acres in the Main Street in the village of Murroe beside a closed-down supermarket, and then there are the 33 acres that served as an outside farm that the previous owner had.”

The land on Main Street in Murroe is of purely agricultural value and comes with an extensive range of sheds as well as the four-bedroom house and supermarket of over 2,000 square feet. 

“Of the 26 acres, there are about 19 acres that are very good, with the rest of it heavier.”

The 33-acre Co Limerick farm is a residential holding 4.5km from Murroe and 7.5km from Newport, and about 20km east of Limerick city.

The farm is accessed via a laneway that is part of the property, leading directly from the public road. There is an old cottage dwelling on the land, a traditional-style single-storey property which would be ideal for anyone to develop if seeking a hobby farm set-up. 

The structure is still there and, with the accompanying outbuildings, it makes for a useful hook to make this holding a worthwhile investment whether for living in or for letting.

The land is well laid out and is all in one block. There is a forestry plantation next door in an area of average quality land, with more than half of it in a SAC (Special Area of Conservation).

The building is a valuable addition, with potential, and the land quality is good, according to the selling agent.

The price guide is €10,000 per acre for the land in Murroe village, and €5,000 per acre for the land at Garranbane.
