€13,000 per acre sought for land in Killarney

A 57.5-acre holding in the townland of Dromdoohig, near Ballyhar in Co Kerry is, according to selling agents Sherry Fitzgerald Coghlan, to be sold in its entirety or in lots by private treaty.

But the Killarney-based auctioneers are not ruling out the possibility of it going to public auction at a later date.

“There are no buildings on the land,” says selling agent Michael Coghlan, who notes there is already an offer on the whole property, for which they seek €750,000 (€13,000/acre).

The farm is all in grass at the moment and is described as elevated land of primarily free draining pasture. It is presented as Lot 1 consisting of 32.5 acres and Lot 2 of 25 acres.

“Forty acres of this holding is very good land,” says Michael, who adds that the remaining acreage has been well reclaimed. 

“It has good road frontage. It’s split by the public road and there’s only one other farm beyond it before that road ends so it’s nice access, via a quiet road. It also has road frontage onto the Ardagh road.”

The farm is just 5.6kms from Killarney.

Prices for good land surrounding the town have been strong in recent years.
