Claregalway-based David Moggan Property Consultants are bringing a north Galway residential farm of 72ac to the market. The land at Pollnahallia, Belclare, Tuam is for sale by online auction.

The lands are of excellent quality and are all in one block. Presently in grass, they are laid out in neat divisions and are renowned for their fattening abilities.

To the centre of the land is an area containing sand and gravel deposits. This may have further potential but in recent years, it has been used for out-wintering of cattle.

The traditional style storey-and-a-half farmhouse is located on the roadside of the farm. Extending to approximately 585sq ft, the property is expected to qualify for the Vacant Property Refurbishment Grant.

Renovation job

As vacant properties go, this one requires less work than others. And with a renovation job, it could easily be transformed into a wonderful countryside home.

The roadside residence has four bedrooms.

The accommodation includes the entrance porch, living room, sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor. There is another pair of bedrooms on the first floor.

The farmyard is to the rear of the dwelling and includes a three-bay traditional style hay shed, a range of traditional storage sheds, a cattle crush and penning.

This property is 6km from the villages of Belclare and Caherlistrane. It’s almost equidistant from Headford (10km) and Tuam (11km), with livestock marts in both towns.

Auctioneer David Moggan describes this property as, “one of the finest farms ever to come on the market in this region”.

There are cattle handling facilities included in the yard.

He has an advised minimum value (AMV) of €680,000 for this excellent holding.

An executor sale, it will be auctioned online on the LSL platform at 3pm on Friday, 22 March.

This sale will surely tell the tale as to how much good quality agricultural land is achieving in the west of Ireland.
