Hey Dave,

I know this post is very late and you probably already have a site but it may help someone else out there also looking.

What you’re looking for is out there as purely agricultural land (see but what you are prepared to pay and where you are prepared to buy are not compatible.

The remote pennisulas in the south-west are some of the most over priced areas of Ireland for their beauty and remoteness. Land there is expensive and sites more so, even in this resession time. And any visit to the area will show you that the beauty claim is in no way undeserved.

If you want cheap land you need to look at areas that have very little internationally recognised beauty or views (local beauty is still very much evident) these areas include counties Monaghan and Cavan.

But even there, for land you can put a caravan on you are talking about €5,000 to €10,000 per acre minimum, anything cheaper and it’ll be either bog or forest or steep hillside, etc. Not including solicitors fees and land registration fees.

Remember also you will need planning permission to drill a well and create access onto your land (assuming you already have road frontage but no gate). And you may also need planning permission to have a caravan on your land for more then a short period every year.

That said, it is possible to buy cheap land in Ireland and I wish you luck in your endevor.
