€4,800/acre guide price for 26 Bantry acres
A 26-acre parcel of land in West Cork near the village of Kealkil should provide some temptation for one of the many who dream of certain kinds of projects in this scenic part of the world.
The land in question isn’t going to make a top-class dairy farm just yet, but will be of interest to someone looking to build a home and have some acres to develop an equestrian centre or a hobby farm of some sort. According to selling agent Denis Harrington of Harrington Estates in Bantry, the land is of mixed quality.
It’s only a couple of kilometres from the small village of Kealkil (famous for its standing stones), about 9km north-east of Bantry.
The non-residential holding has good road frontage onto a minor public road that connects Kealkil with the Mealagh Valley. The road dissects the property into two distinct parts, as Denis explains: “The ground on the west side of the road would be ideal for some- one looking to build their own home, with an eye to using that better part of the ground. The rougher ground is on the eastern side of the road. “It’s very convenient to Bantry and to Kealkil and for people looking for small farm projects, it’s really ideal, for someone who would be thinking perhaps of having a home and building stables or some other small farming venture.” The land here has plenty of potential for a hobby farmer or part-time farmer who would be prepared to put the work in over a number of years to improve it. There are lovely views looking out towards Bantry Bay, according to Denis, who quotes a guide price of €120,000-130,000.
