Property: Kilronan West pastures near Dunmanway are turning heads

“It’s about 3.5km south of Dunmanway, just off the main road to Clonakilty,” says selling agent Daniel Lehane. The property is also accessed via the road that goes past the GAA pitch in Dunmanway and it is already inciting some interest locally, according to Daniel:

“The phone has been ringing since the signs went up,” he says, “which is always a good sign.”

The agent describes the property as “very good quality grassland. It’s just shy of 19 acres and it was all reseeded about 2-3 years ago.

“It’s in one block. They are good large divisions too. There are two smaller fields and two quite large fields. The two small ones could easily be made into one — it’s only a matter of taking away a ditch.”

Such good quality grazing land is a rare enough commodity to make an appearance on the market, according to Daniel.

The property is well located with the proximity of the up-and-coming town of Dunmanway and the larger town of Clonakilty.

The land also benefits from good road frontage: “There’s great road access along the southern side, which might mean some site potential in the future.”

There is also a river along the northern flanks of the holding, a tributary of the River Bandon. This provides a good natural water supply to the land. There aren’t any entitlements going with it.

“There aren’t any outbuildings on it but the size of the tract of land it is makes it ideal for some guy that would grazing heifers over the summer and maybe taking a cut of silage off it.

“That’s the type of situation it’s ideal for.

“It’s a level tract of land, it’s the Bandon Valley, a piece of good-quality grassland.”

The asking price is €180,000 – almost €10,000/acre.
