Why invest in Ireland?

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 recent years, counties Dublin, Meath and Kildare have 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 has stood at around €9,000 per acre.

Ready-made stud farms can trade at anywhere between €15,000 and €40,000 per acre. These figures are for fully completed stud farms, all located in suitable regions and ideally suited to bloodstock enterprise.

The Irish bloodstock breeding and racing industry is of major economic significance to Ireland, contributing close two billion Euro per year. 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.
