’43-acre Wexford farm a rare opportunity in March auction.’ Irish Examiner. 13/02/24.

Lot 2 of the 43-acre farm consists of 27.2 acres of land

Coming up for public auction online on March 8 is a 43-acre farm, presented in lots.

Coming on the back of a series of successful online auctions for the Gorey-based selling agents QUINN PROPERTY, this is a holding which is sure to attract a range of interested parties from farming and non-farming sectors.

Located in the heart of some of Wexford’s most productive agricultural lands, the property represents a rare opportunity, according to selling agent David Quinn.

“It’s a valuable parcel of land, 2km from Ballingdaggin village,” Mr Quinn said. 

“This is a holding that represents a rare opportunity to acquire a piece of the region’s finest fertile soil… it’s suitable for a variety of agricultural and farming practices.”

There is a derelict farmhouse and series of outbuildings coming with the property, which is presented in four possible lots:

  • Lot 1 is the derelict farmhouse on circa 0.75 acres; 
  • Lot 2 consists of 27.2 acres of land; 
  • Lot 3 is a 15-acre parcel; 
  • Lot 4 is the entire 43-acre farm.
The farmhouse is fully intact but in a derelict condition.

The farmhouse is fully intact but in a derelict condition. The layout comprises an inner hall, sitting room, kitchen and two bedrooms on the ground floor. On the first floor, a landing (2.8m x 1.1m) leads to a bathroom and two more bedrooms.

The outbuildings are in a similar condition and include a round roof shed (8.2m x 5m), milking parlour (4m x 3.5m), a hay barn (9m x 7.3m), a lofted shed (3.6m x 3.6m) and a lofted stone-built shed (4.8m x 3.6m + loft).

There is good road access directly onto all three lots, with the public road acting as a natural divider. The N80 is 5km away, while the more substantial towns of Enniscorthy and Bunclody both 10km from the farm.

“The land is of excellent quality. It’s currently in grass with a small amount of forestry in Lot 3,” Mr Quinn said

The guide price for the derelict farmhouse on its curtilage is €50,000, while the land itself has an attractive guide of €12,000-€15,000 per acre.
