Coonan Property Maynooth, Celbridge and Naas have recently bought a sizeable non-residential farm in Co Offaly to the market. For sale by private treaty, it consists of 60.17ac of prime quality lands in the townland of Meelaghans.

The land itself is all in grass and has been well-maintained. It is laid out in two divisions and there is a stream that runs through the property.

While there is no yard or buildings present, there is electricity and mains water available and there is also a hardcore area with slabs for a silage pit. Accessed via a laneway from the public road, this area could provide a focal point for anyone wishing to establish a yard or livestock handling facilities. The Dublin to Galway rail line runs along the northern boundary of the farm.

The Dublin to Galway rail line runs just outside the northern boundary of the farm.

Along with the land quality, the farm’s location is one of its strengths. Just 5km southeast of the town centre of Tullamore, it’s just 3km away from the Cloncollog roundabout and the N52. Junction 5 of the M6 motorway is also only 15km away. Within a 30-minute drive radius of this holding, there is an abundance of agricultural and equestrian activity.

The land is currently all in grass, it has no buildings but there is a hardcore area that could become a yard.


Its proximity to such an extensive road network makes this farm an option for any farmer considering picking up a good block of land that is easily accessible. At over 60ac, this land could function as a sizeable fodder and drystock rearing operation for an existing farm or it could have an equestrian future.

This land is surrounded by one-off housing and Coonan Property says that it is also ideally suited to a one-off dwelling, subject to planning permission.

The guide price for this property is €13,000/ac.
