A 26-acre farm near the birthplace of Michael Collins is already on offer


With perfect historic timing, a 26-acre farm just next to Michael Collins’ birthplace has just been put on the market with Clonakilty-based auctioneers, Hodnett-Forde Property Services.

The farm is located in the commune of Coolnagay, halfway between Clonakilty and Rosscarbery and 1 km north of the Lissavaird cooperative. It is presented in three batches. Lot A comprises 17 acres of land. Lot B is 7.8 acres and lot C is a dwelling and outbuildings on ca. 1.4 hectares. According to sales agent John Hodnett, the property is already attracting a lot of interest, especially its traditional two-storey farmhouse.

“The land is divided into two divisions,” explains John. “There are about 17 acres in the main block and nearly 8 acres across the road, about an acre and a half of which includes the house.

“The land would be good for the most part. Lot A is low, sheltered and securely fenced and a stream forms its southern boundary. Lot B would have a slope over a section of it so it would only be suitable for grazing.

The land has not been cultivated for several years, says John. “This is evident by the current cultivation of the pastures. However, the land is of very good quality and would make an ideal unit for a hobby farmer or to expand an existing holding.

The house is an extended and renovated traditional house in very good condition, offering over 100m2 of living space, with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room, utility room and kitchen.

The indicative price for the entire property is around €450,000 to €500,000. With the house valued between €175,000 and €200,000, the expected price for the land is around €10,000 to €12,000/acre. Lot C is already being offered.
