An impressive period residence on 49.5ac is for sale at Bannow, Co Wexford. The property is the Old Rectory and it goes for auction on Friday 2 July 2021 at 2.30pm.

The joint agents are PN O’Gorman and Sherry Fitzgerald Haythornthwaite.


The land essentially lies in one block but it is divided by a number of public roads. As a result the property is being offered in lots – as well as the entire – and there is likely to be good interest from local farmers in the different blocks of land.

The period house is spacious at 3,300sq ft and has seven bedrooms.

The area is close to Wellingtonbridge and the quality of the land is good. The land is all in permanent pasture.


The lots are as follows:

  • Lot 1 is the residence and outbuildings on 13.5ac.
  • Lot 2 is 22.2ac with dual road frontage.
  • Lot 3 is 11.5ac laid out in two main divisions.
  • Lot 4 is 1.75ac with a derelict building.
  • Lot 5 is the entire.
  • The residence

    The guide price guide for the house on 13.5ac is €450,000 and the remaining lands with a guide of €10,000/ac.

    This is the entrance hall to the Old Rectory house.

    The house has great appeal and retains many original features. It is spacious at 300sq m in size and has seven bedrooms. The rooms downstairs include kitchen, sitting room, living room and office. The house is in good condition but needs some modernisation.

    Behind the house is a courtyard with fine, stone-built outbuildings which are in relatively good condition. The house and courtyard sit back from the public road, surrounded by mature trees and so has great privacy.
