Beside the cottage are several sheds and a good-sized farmyard with handling facilities, a 3 bay hayshed, 3 bay slatted shed and 1 bay lean-to storage shed. Although some repairs are needed, you have more than the basics here to get you started–and then to transform as you see fit.


The cottage and yard are situated on circa 9 acres of excellent, well farmed land, suitable for any type of farming. The land is comprised of 2 main parcels, with one field (the smaller) located immediately north of the cottage (with the public road running between). This field is comprised of good land with almost 100 metres road frontage, in great condition which stretches up and away from the front of the cottage. The second larger parcel of land runs down and away from the back of the cottage to Capragh Lough–well known for bream, rudd and trench fishing–to form the most picturesque of backdrops. The cottage, land and lake give you somewhere special to live, to farm, or to transform into something even better.


The cottage, land and farmyard are Lot 1 of three lots which are currently offered for sale by the owners:
