Avonbeg Mill: planning permission for a new three-bedroom home

 

Fancy an old mill with a history and considerable potential? Colliers has just the thing for you in Ballinaclash Co Wicklow.

Avonbeg Mill is a tumbledown house by a fast-running river, complete with mill race.

There’s planning permission for a new three-bedroom home, and all for €200,000.

Set on 1.45 acres of land, the property looks directly over the Avonmore river, west of Ballinaclash, the town and people on which poet and playwright John Millington Synge wrote his play A Tinker’s Wedding.

Another point of interest is that Eamon De Valera fell into the river at this spot and almost drowned, or so the agent says.

The property is within striking distance of Rathdrum which has a commuter train service to Dublin.
