For you: Dollanstown was owned by the Hamilton Smythe family in the 19th century and was later taken over by horse trainer Peter Purcell Gilpin, who established a stud. The land extends to 354 acres with a modernised country house at its heart. The period home has seven bedrooms, four of which are en suite, and is attached to a two-bedroom courtyard wing which provides self-contained accommodation set over two levels. There are seven additional properties set around the estate. For the horses: there are 71 stables split between several yards. As well as an indoor and two all-weather outdoor arenas, there is a six-bay horse walker, a Dutch barn and gallops. The remains of an event course, last used in 2000, still exist around the estate.
Usp: an agricultural enterprise is run alongside the equestrian stud. There are two sets of farm buildings, as well as land with a network of internal roads and tracks. There is also a wood. €9.25m Savills Dublin,
