PICS: This Tipperary Estate Is Going For A Staggering €8 Million – And You Can See Why

Complete with lake and mute swans


Kilcooley Estate in Thurles in County Tipperary is currently up for grabs for those with deep pockets.

With an asking price of €8 million, the mansion itself boasts a total floor area of 35,000 square feet. 

The estate, founded in 1182, is steeped in history. The property looks out over a 12th century abbey, a Gothic boat house, and a private lake.

The mansion was first built in the 17th century and was renovated to its current state in the 18th century.

Here are some of the perks you could enjoy at Kilcooley Estate:

  • 1,263 acres of land
  • A farmstead
  • Victorian architecture
  • 950 acres of private forest
  • An extensive range of stone outbuildings
  • A courtyard within the mansion
  • Natural high stone boundary walls
  • A stone bridge to traverse your private lake

It does appear to require quite intensive renovations, but there's definitely a tonne of potential there for all the Grand Designs-loving, eccentric billionaires out there.
