A 20ac holding of fine land has come on the market near Ballinspittle in west Cork.

The land is at Garrettstown and it’s on offer by private treaty from Hodnett Forde. The land is 2.5km from Ballinspittle, 9km from Kinsale and a 30-minute drive to Cork.

The land is in one block and is currently in spring barley. There is very good-quality land in the area with a lot of tillage farming.

The parcel for sale is likewise top notch. The asking price for this property is €350,000, or €17,500/ac.

The land is in a very scenic part of the country, with the Old Head of Kinsale visible from it.

The land is generating plenty of enquiries, auctioneer Ernest Forde said, from both purchasers looking for a hobby farm and from farmers seeking to enlarge their existing holdings. There are excellent sea views from the land, with the Old Head of Kinsale in the background, he said.
