DescriptionResidential, agricultural and sporting portfolio with exceptional scenery and lough frontage extending to about 517 acres
The Derrypark and Glenbeg Portfolio is offered for sale as a whole or in six lots.
The Derrypark & Glenbeg Portfolio is a wonderful residential, agricultural and sporting holding set in the scenic heartland of County Mayo. The Portfolio extends to about 517 acres in total and offers a variety of opportunities. It includes six residential properties which are all beautifully positioned around the shore of an inlet of Lough Mask, each with a magnificent outlook across the water and onto the dramatic mountain ranges. While Derrypark Lodge is presently occupied by the owners, a successful holiday letting business is run from the remaining residential properties.
The Portfolio is in two principal blocks; Derrypark, situated to the north of the lough's inlet and Glenbeg, situated to the south. A 17-acre block of farmland lies a short distance to the east of the principal landholding at Glenbeg. A notable attraction is that the properties situated at Glenbeg are all accessed off a minor road which terminates midway along the peninsula, resulting in a limited volume of passing traffic.
The surrounding area offers spectacular views and is renowned for its unspoilt, natural beauty which is a haven for wildlife. There are terrific sporting opportunities on the estate and in the surrounding area, with premier-quality fishing and boating on Lough Mask and shooting and stalking available locally. The present owners run a commercial fishing enterprise, with six boats available, as well as a ghillie service.
Further income is generated through an in-hand farming business. The farm carries a breeding flock of about 500 hill ewes which are lambed outdoors. General farm work is contracted in. There is a small range of farm buildings and livestock handling facilities situated next to Martin Tom's Cottage, while further outbuildings lie next to Derrypark Cottages and Glenbeg Cottage.
A key feature of the Portfolio is that each Lot has direct access to the lough, with the total frontage onto the lough extending to about 2,780 metres.

The Derrypark & Glenbeg Portfolio is located on the banks of Lough Mask on the fringe of the Mayo/Galway county boundary. The portfolio of properties is set amongst unspoilt rural countryside, commanding magnificent views over Lough Mask and onto the Partry Mountains. County Mayo is located on Ireland's west coast and is often described as one of the country's hidden treasures.
A key feature of the portfolio is that each residential property includes waterfrontage and direct access to Lough Mask. Lough Mask is a large limestone lough of more than 20,000 acres in area, the sixth largest on the island of Ireland and the second largest, in terms of volume of water. It lies within the counties of Mayo and Galway. Along with Lough Corrib, it is one of the best-known brown trout fishing loughs in Ireland. The lough is also famous for its large ferox trout. It has played host to the World Cup Trout Fly Fishing Competition since 1953.
In addition to fishing on Loughs Mask, Carra and Corrib, salmon fishing is available on the world-famous River Moy, Delphi Fishery and the River Errif. The rugged landscape, topography and loughs combine to make the local area renowned for its game shooting and wildfowling. The Partry Mountains are home to a population of deer.
