Property Description:

The subject property is located in the centre of Athy Town to the immediate south east of The Courthouse building on Emily Square and Duke Street Bridge. The site is ideally located within walking distance of the town centre and a host of shops and other amenities. The Abbey lands are located within 600 metres walking distance from Athy Train Station and are also located 10km from the M9 Dublin Motorway. The surrounding area benefits from a number of facilities and amenities including Athy Courthouse and the Ernst Shackleton Memorial, Supervalu, LIDL, Shaws Department Store, St. Vincents Hospital, Athy Rowing & Canoeing Club, Athy Rugby Football Club, Athy College and several schools, shops, restaurants, public houses and sports amenities. Athy is a busy rural town and has a population of 9,919. The rural Athy area has a population of 874 (Census 2016). It is a busy commuter town within 45 minutes commuting distance from Heuston Station, Dublin by train. The property is 65 minutes driving distance from Dublin city centre without traffic.

The subject site is approximately 1.08 hectares (2.67 acres) and is irregular in shape as the east section of the property adjoins the rear terrace of Offaly Street properties and the west of the site adjoins the River Barrow. This site could provide convenient pedestrian or vehicular access to Emily Square and Athy Town Centre with good access to Athy Train Station as well as local shops and amenities. The lands are relatively flat in topography and we understand the lands were previously occupied by Athy Abbey. A road reservation has been designated on a northern portion of the property and a public walkway runs along the western boundary of the lands.

We understand that all mains services are available to the property. Interested parties are advised to satisfy themselves as to the availability of these services.
