West Cork grazing farm is well positioned for sale

THIS 80-acre farm on the outskirts of Bantry, Co Cork could possibly have made crazy money in the height of the boom.

Now, the well-positioned grazing farm is on offer for the price of a standard detached house in the capital.

The farm, at Dromleigh Bantry, is on the market with Denis Harrington of Harrington Estates, who’s seeking offers in excess of €320,000 for the property.

All in one block, with a reasonable amount of road frontage, the land comprises 40 acres of what Harrington says is good quality grazing ground, with the remainder fair to plantable land, running to mountain.

Just off the location for a proposed Bantry relief road, (and close to an area earmarked for a large retail and commercial development), the land is now suitable as a hobby farm, organic enterprise or a very large building site.

The land is all in one block, and would suit a business person looking for accessibility with privacy, perhaps, or an existing farmer looking to expand.

The sale includes a number of old stone buildings, with a derelict farmhouse, and there could be residential conversion potential here, says Denis Harrington.

He has an existing bid on the property, and is inviting further offers on this parcel of land, that could have very long term development potential.

Harrington Estates are the agents to contact.
