Located 20 minutes from Cork City ring road (30 minutes from Cork international airport), the Paddocks is a modern, well-built equestrian facility in the beautiful East Cork countryside, 5 minutes drive from the busy market/commuter town of Midleton.
The airy, comfortable American barn consists of 17 Loddon boxes, 12 of which are 10’x12’ and 5 of which are 12’x14’. They all have water drinkers and hay racks. The barn gives excellent shelter both from summer heat and during the Irish winter. It also has a hay/straw area and 2 feed rooms including rug racks.
Outside the barn is a 55x60m outdoor floodlit arena with a surface that holds up well through the varied weather, with a small set of wooden jumps. There is an office, tack room and toilet next to the barn. There are several pleasant, quiet hacks around the yard, and it is an excellent base for travelling to shows, events, fun rides, hunts and other activities, being only 5 minutes from the N25 Cork to Waterford road.
The yard has almost 10 acres of well-kept grazing, divided into 19 paddocks each with a water trough, plus 3 small ‘standing paddocks’. The grazing is cared for by the landlord, who lays fertilizer and tops weeds in accordance with the land’s needs, and in communication with the tenant. Hay and haylage is also made every year on the further 50 acres of farmland.
The yard has functioned superbly for the current tenant as a successful livery yard and base for freelance teaching, as well as the arena being hired out to individuals or groups. It could continue to work well in this capacity, or as/combined with a buying and selling/breaking/schooling/competition yard. The current tenant is leaving due to family commitments, but there is a possibility of a small number of current liveries remaining if this suited the new tenant.
