The Property

A truly unique and perfectly developed stud farm extending to approx. 206 acres (83.4 ha) in a perfect location just off the Curragh Plains with stunning views over Co. Kildare and beyond. The farm is in an excellent location only a 10 minute drive from the M7 and the Classic Curragh Racecourse.

The lands are accessed via a quiet road just off the R415 Kildare/Milltown Road near the Rathbride Junction giving excellent privacy and tranquillity. The lands rise gently from the entrance gates continuously to the rear of the farm resulting in the majority of the farm having an attractive south easterly aspect and the most spectacular views over the Curragh Plains and out to the Dublin Mountains, that any part of County Kildare can boast.

The lands at Rathbride are of the highest quality and have been developed into a modern stud farm with recently reseeded pasture laid out in 19 stud railed paddocks all served by 6 metre wide gravel roads running from the very front of the farm to the rear. The road network is further enhanced by a generous set back of almost 2 metres from the beech hedging and stud railing. There is approx. 9.5 acres (3.8 ha) of forestry on the north eastern boundary of the farm.

The first yard located nearest the entrance, is home to two separate American Barns, a 6 bay L-shaped hay shed, two lunging rings, a horse walker, loading bay and a staff carpark. Both barns are of similar steel framed construction finished with non-drip sheeting and concrete block walls and both have c.15% Perspex sheeting in the roof and 70% on the large entrance doors meaning there is exceptional natural light in the building. The first barn is built as a H block and provides 38 loose boxes with a mare inspection room with storage room, staff canteen and w.c accommodated in the central block. The second barn provides a further 8 loose boxes, again with good natural light and both barns have excellent ventilation.

Immediately behind the first yard lies three turn out paddocks that are all keep safe railed and are of fibre and woodchip laid over a tarmac base. A further 5 small convenient paddocks adjoin and surround the yard. A multi-purpose yard and 4 bay shed stands towards the centre of the farm and is ideal as an isolation block and is convenient to the main body of the farm.

All divisions and yards and the house are served by water from the farm’s own well.

The Dwelling

A fully refurbished and modern 3-bedroom single storey cottage located near the entrance to the stud farm.
