A 165 acre non-residential dairy farm with its own 'island' near the sea in Tacumshane was withdrawn from auction last Friday afternoon without reaching the guide price of €1.3m to €1.5m.

Gary Quinn of DNG Property People Wexford said the property beside Rostoonstown Strand is now going for sale by private treaty and he is currently in talks with interested parties.

The farm located close to Killinick was a dairy farm for a number of years and was then tilled for vegetables. Over the past three years, it has been turned back into a dairy farm with state-of-the-art facilities, paddocking and internal roadways.

The holding has been used as an out-farm for a larger enterprise and was put together by the owner of the larger concern over the past number of years.

The main part of the property is in a 132 acre block with a 33 acre parcel in an island on Tacumshane Lake.

Auctioneer Gary Quinn described the land as the best of free-draining Wexford ground with a water supply to every corner and modern electric fencing.

The yard is centred around an 8,000 square feet shed that, along with providing housing for calves and fodder, is also home to a 14 unit milking parlour with space to be extended to 22 units.
