Three compact farm holdings have come on the market in north Co Dublin, two of them residential. They are being

sold by Sherry Fitzgerld Cumisky Kelly.

The Grallagh

The largest is c35ac at The Grallagh, Garristown with a farmhouse and farmyard. The guide price is €995,000.

The Grallagh is situated within a triangle of ground between the villages of Naul, Garristown and Oldtown.

The larger town of Ashbourne is nearby as is the M1 motorway at Junction 6. With frontage onto the R130, it is in an area of good land and as a result, good farming. The land has been under permanent pasture for many years.

The house is a five-bed bungalow, built in the 1970s while the farmyard has a three-bay hayshed and a stable block with five stables.

West Curragh

The second property is an old-style cottage and a large yard on 3.13ac at West Curragh, the Naul.

This holding has frontage along the Naul to Garristown road. The shed is leased out but the tenant is not affected by sale. The guide price is in the region of €375,000.

The c20.674ac for sale near Swords.

The Leas, Swords

The third property is c20.674ac at Brazil, The Leas, Swords. The ground is laid out in two fields and has frontage onto the R108 Ballyboughal Road which connects Drogheda and Dublin city centre. It is currently under permanent pasture. This holding is only two fields away from residential zoning at Mooretown and Swords Community College.

The guide price is €750,000, which is over €36,000/ac. Auctioneer John Cumisky says he sold two larger parcels of land in the vicinity last year for even higher prices.
