Sherry Fitzgerald McDermott is selling top-quality land located between the villages of Nurney and Kildangan in south Kildare.

Located at Ballyvarney, the property encompasses a total area of approximately 94ac. It goes to public auction on 3 March at 4pm in the Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge. It will be offered in either one or two lots, depending on the price.

Lot 1 consists of 60ac while lot 2 is the entire, 93.85ac.

While generally surrounded by agricultural land there are a number of single one-off houses found in the locality and subject to planning permission, there could be site potential for a private residence.

The avenue is lined with mature trees.
The land is adjacent to the world-renowned Kildangan Stud and it can be accessed from the road via a mature tree-lined private avenue.


The farm is divided into six natural divisions, each of a reasonably large size. Natural boundaries in the form of hedgerows separate the different sections and the land has recently been used for grass and tillage. Equally, it is suitable for a number of future uses.

The overall soil quality of the farm is described as very good, and most of the farm is classified as Fontstown series in terms of Kildare soils.

The land is easily accessible from the M7 motorway and is less than a 15-minute drive from both the Curragh and Kildare town.

The towns of Newbridge (18km) and Athy (14km) are a short drive away. It’s location within a renowned agricultural area and the land’s previous existence as part of the equine domain are all factors that are likely to play a part in the future ownership of this stunning farmland.

The soil on the farm is classified as Fontstown series in terms of Kildare soils.

Price will vary depending on demand on the day, but the overall guide for this property is €950,000, or just over €10,100/ac.
