On the books of joint selling agents Sherry FitzGerald Brady O’Flaherty and Sherry FitzGerald Reilly, this farm is conveniently set in one block

It is currently under high-quality permanent pasture, but could be suitable for any agricultural or equine use.

The farm is laid out in six large fields which are free draining and there is also roughly 300m of road frontage onto a local road.

Farmed to a high standard, it is well fenced. In an era where biodiversity on farms is gaining prominence the mature boundary hedging with a selection of mature trees can be viewed as a more positive asset as perhaps they may have been in the past.

The 59.5ac farm at Garvogue is 4km from Prosperous.

It is located in the townland of Garvogue which is close to Staplestown village and only 4km from Prosperous in northwest Kildare.

An area with a strong agricultural heritage, this farm is in an equine stronghold and within easy reach of a number of Ireland’s leading race courses

High praise

Auctioneer Eamon O’Flaherty of Sherry FitzGerald Brady O’Flaherty says: “This farm really speaks for itself, as good a ground as you are likely to see on the market this year. With excellent frontage and free-draining [land], you could literally drive a bus around it at the moment. It is laid out in large easily worked fields.”

With a central location and versatility in terms of potential future land use, this offering is bound to attract substantial interest both locally and beyond. It is guided at €590,000, or approximately €10,000/ac.

Current COVID-19 restrictions mean the farm will be sold by an online auction. This will take place via the www.offr.io platform on 12pm on 26 February 2021.
