Hodnett Forde Property services, Clonakilty has a compact residential farm for sale in west Cork. For sale by private treaty, this attractive holding is located close to the R599, Clonakilty to Dunmanway road.

The lands are laid out in one natural division, it is south of the Argideen River and currently all in pasture.

The largest portion of the land is in one large field subdivided into paddocks while there are a number of smaller fields further away from the yard.

An old laneway gives access to these fields.


The house and yard are set just off a small public road that is 500m from the R599. A traditional two-storey farmhouse, the residence is in good structural condition and has PVC windows and oil-fired central heating.

The house is an old-style farmhouse in need of some modernisation.

It does however, require internal modernising. The ground floor has a hallway, sitting room, living room, kitchen and utility room while upstairs consists of three bedrooms and a bathroom.


A short distance across a concrete yard are the farm buildings. Containing a number of good-quality farm buildings, of extra interest here is an old slate-roof stable building with loft and windows overhead. This building is sandwiched between a storage shed and other out building and could lend itself to conversion to accommodation.

A hay barn with a double lean-to is the dominant building in the yard.

To the rear of this is the remainder of the buildings and the land. A dairy farm in the recent past, the sheds comprise of an old double-sided cubicles and a relatively modern milking parlour and dairy.


This farm sits in an area that contains suppliers of both, Drinagh and Lisavaird co-ops so it could suit an existing milk supplier of either or perhaps someone wishing to get started off in farming.

It is a mere 10-minute drive from the centre of Clonakilty, it is 14km from Dunmanway.

Offered for sale in its entirety or in two lots, this executor sale has a guide price in the region of €625,000 to €650,000 for the entire.

Lot 1 is the residence, yard and two acres while lot 2 consists of the remaining 41ac.
