DOLLANSTOWN STUD

Horse & Hound - - Properties of the Week -

kil­cock, Co. Meath

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,
