Cottage on c. 0.75 acres. Newgrange, Slane Co Meath.

Rare opportunity to acquire a old residence in this area. In the townland of Newgrange, in the World Heritage Site. Lovely rural farmstead setting in the most historic area in Ireland. Planning is impossible for green field sites in this area. This existing residence with outhouses, allows potential for refurbishment and possible extension (subject to permission).

A former Land Commission cottage that was extended pre’63. It has great potential, both with the house and the old cow sheds.

We are extending the boundary out into the field behind to take in the existing septic tank and give room for a replacement tank or extending.

The house would benefit from refurbishment and modernizing. An apt setting for a eco-friendly refurbishment with kitchen garden, poultry etc?

9km from Drogheda town, 5km from Slane village and walking distance to Knowth and Newgrange Tumulus.



A single storied detached cottage built c.1945, and extended pre 1963. It is now a 3 bedroomed cottage. Solidly built with tiled roof.
