A large dairy farm in the east of the Rebel County has recently come on the market. Located in an area noted for its dairy and equestrian enterprises, Fermoy auctioneers Dick Barry and Son are bringing this 89ac non-residential farm to public auction in April.

An executor sale, the farm at Ardra, Castlelyons, Co Cork is all in one block and has excellent road frontage. Consisting of good quality sound and level ground, this grassland farm is well laid out and has its own private water supply.

The farmyard is by the roadside and was a modern yard in its heyday. The range of buildings include a six-bay hayshed with lean-tos on both sides. Within this there are cubicles and there is also another separate cubicle house. Furthermore, there is an old milking parlour, collecting yard and dairy facilities.

The 85 ac farm.

Auctioneer Michael Barry is guiding this farm in the region of €1m to €1.5m. With a slightly smaller farm in the locality selling at auction recently for €27,000/ac, and no shortage of dairy and equestrian interests in a short radius, strong competition is expected for this grassland farm with plenty of potential.

It is located just over 6km from Castlelyons, 13km from Fermoy and a little over a 20-minute drive from Midleton. The auction takes place at 3pm on Wednesday, 10 April in the Midleton Park Hotel.
