Important Sale of Marsh Farm Yard on 2.45 acres
The Team at Sherry FitzGerald Carroll welcome to the market Marsh Farm Yard at Mooretown, Dundalk comprising a range of traditional stone and red brick farmyard buildings dating back to c. 1860, together with a modern workshop and converted warehouse store, extending to approx. 1168sq m / 12,570sq ft and open paddock, all set on an overall site area of 0.99ha / 2.46 acres.
The property is located approx. 6kms south of Dundalk Town, fronting the old Dublin Road (R132) at Mooretown, Dromiskin, Co Louth and approximately 3kms from both Blackrock and Dromiskin Village and 6.5kms from M1 Junction 15 Castlebellingham. The convenient semi-rural location offers attractive views over the adjoining Marsh Farm and towards Dundalk Bay and Cooley Mountains.
The Marsh Farm Yard comprises eight traditional stone and red brick buildings of various styles, ages and use. Originally developed as the farm yard attaching to the large Marsh Farm which lies to the east, the yard would have been originally designed as the centre of the farm with an impressive array of single storey and two storey stone coach houses, stables, grain stores, barns and lofts, all developed around two courtyards. A number of the buildings are now partly repurposed and in most recent times, the yard has been home to a mechanics workshop with the balance lying vacant.
The site extends to 2.47 acres approximately, with a shared hardcore entrance roadway leading to a private gated entrance and part concrete yard spaces. The eight buildings can be summarised as follows.

Although the Marsh Farm Yard is a listed property within the Louth County Development Plan 2021 2027, a recent planning application to redevelop the Grain Store at the northern end of the yard to a large private residence, was withdrawn, but the process has yielded significant discussion, prospects and support for the overall redevelopment of the entire yard into a modern commercial / residential complex subject to the necessary planning permission and architectural conservation reports.
The Marsh Farm Yard retains a wealth of original features and a real sense of historic character and charm. The property now offers huge potential for a wide range of uses, from re-purposing to additional commercial use or to full redevelopment of existing structures, the potential in endless.
We understand mains water and electrical services are connected to the property.
The property is held Freehold and will be sold with vacant possession but including the 2 mobile antennae lease agreements.
