Land type and layout

Situated in an area renown for the excellent land type, the farm itself consists of 36ac of what is described as good-quality land. It is laid out in three large fields that are currently in permanent pasture and the property has excellent road frontage.

The south-Tipperary farm is located three miles from Cloneen village.

When the land is sold, the current water supply will be removed but fortunately the land the presence of the River Anner to the rear of the property means a system could be put in place to provide water if required for any grazing animals.

The yard is close to the road and contains an assortment of outbuildings and a large three-bay hay barn.

While basic enough and in need of renovation, the yard and buildings are functional if required. There are no EU payment entitlements included in this sale.

The farm is situated about 3.5km from the R692 road Cloneen village is 5km from the property and it is within a 15 minute-drive of Fethard and Mullinahone.

Auctioneer Robbie Grace of REA Grace said: “We’ve had a few enquiries since the new year. Interest is proving strong in this property. That follows on from a good 2021 in terms of land prices and land sales.”

The asking price here is €300,000, or €8,300/ac. Given how land prices performed in 2021, it is sure to attract the attention of prospective buyers.
