Rare chance to purchase a bit of history

Rarely do opportunities come up like this . . . Vincent Walsh Auctioneers have brought a little bit of history to the market.

Nestled in the fertile lands of Dalgan, Shrule – around 30km from Galway City – lies the Davin Estate, formerly part of the Dalgan Park Estate dating back to the 1700s.

Dalgan Park was home to the Columban Fathers in 1918 for 23 years, until the society moved from Shrule to Navan in 1941.

During this time, the Columban Fathers had undertaken missions to all corners of the world, including China, Australia, the USA, the Philippines, Korea, Burma and Japan.

The Davin Estate comprises a number of properties including a substantial residential property, a unique redevelopment opportunity, potential development lands, and prime agricultural lands, all located adjacent to each other in a quiet scenic country area.

Full of character and original features, the imposing two-storey residential property was originally built in the late 1800s and includes six bedrooms and three bathrooms extending to 1,732 square feet on a 0.36-acre site.

This ground floor is completed and the historic property provides the buyer with the opportunity to put their stamp on it with the first floor providing a blank canvas. The asking price is €175,000.

Nestled on a site close by is ‘The Granary’ (asking €65,000), a cut stone two-storey property sitting on approximately one acre, providing an excellent opportunity to develop an outstanding residential home (subject to planning).

Less than 200m to the south of The Granary is ‘The Orchard’ (asking €85,000), a walled landholding that has to be seen to be believed. Beyond the hand-built four-metre stone walls lies your own ‘secret garden’ of fertile pasture lands extending to 3.77 acres. Access to this piece of paradise in the south Mayo countryside is through a spectacular cut stone entrance in the west elevation of the walls, providing direct access to the adjoining local road.

A further 26.22 acres of high quality fertile lands (asking price €266,000) adjoins The Granary and The Orchard. Laid out over eight fields, these lands are divided by a public road, creating 350 metres of road frontage and can be accessed independently.
