Why invest now?

Over the last five years Ireland has witnessed steadier and more consistent land trade. Increases in land prices in some counties have been observed but in general steady trade has come to the fore. 


In 2017, counties Dublin, Meath and Kildare had a combined average of €12,715 per acre. Tipperary, Limerick, Cork and Kilkenny had a combined average of €9,940 per acre. The aforementioned counties are the premier counties in Ireland for thoroughbred breeding. Overall, the average price in the Republic of Ireland for 2017 came in at €9,088 per acre.

At the height of the market in Ireland, ready-made stud farms were selling for up to €80,000 per acre, whereas today they are trading anywhere between €15,000 and €40,000 per acre. These figures are for fully completed stud farms, all located in suitable regions, and known for their association with, and suitability for a bloodstock enterprise.

The Irish bloodstock breeding and racing industry is of major economic significance to Ireland, contributing €1.84 billion to the Irish economy in 2016. The Irish Government is supportive of the sector and realises the importance of the industry to the Irish economy. There is a suitable tax structure, from acquisitions straight through to the running and management of a stud farm, with favourable employment laws.
