One of County Tipperary's finest stud farms and a wonderful nursery for group winning racehorses worldwide.
Tullamaine Castle is set in one of the leading locations for thoroughbred breeding in Ireland. The estate, located just outside Rosegreen, Co. Tipperary is set on c.75.27 ha (c.186 acres) of limestone rich fertile land. The historic town of Cashel, is closeby with celebrated restaurants and bars.
This listed castle (built in the early 1800's) is approached through wrought iron gates, and a long sweeping mature tree lined avenue, in stunning parkland with exceptional views of the Comeragh mountains. The five ground floor reception rooms, including a spacious drawing room and library are all light and well proportioned. The main hall has a sweeping oak staircase leading to five very fine bedrooms overlooking the gardens, fields and the famous peak of Slievenamon. Two secondary bedrooms are located further down a corridor and an additional stairs leads to three attic rooms.
The backdoor leads out to a sunny enclosed walled garden with greenhouses, a kitchen garden and pathway guiding you towards the yard office and stables. There is a four bedroom residence attached to the yard ensuring sufficient housing for a stud manager or staff.
The stud facilities at Tullamaine are second to none when it comes to producing leading performers both on the track and in the sales ring. The paddocks are free draining with post and rail fencing and sheltered by magnificent beech and oak trees. In turn there is a terrific shelter belt bordering the lands and there has been extensive planting carried out by the present owners over the last 30 years. The main yard is situated at the back of the castle.
