The hangars, which were recently constructed, are to a high

Within Kildare County Development Plan 2011 –

2017, Chapter 6 outlines the council’s approach

to Aerodromes and has a number of specific

policies. GA 3 states that any increase or change

in use will require a full assessment carried out

by the Kildare County Council on the impact that

may arise from the action. GA 1 does encourage

the ‘extension’ or ‘improvement’ of any airport

related buildings, offices or ancillary areas. GA 1

also states that the Council will consult and coordinate

with South Dublin Council in all matters

relating to the airport.


We understand that the property is mainly held

freehold. Approximately 1.11ha (2.73 acres) is

held under possessory title only.


The office facility and available hangarage,

whether on the grass, apron and hangars are

occupied, mainly by local and national flying

clubs or training companies. They are generating

a sizable rental income. Further tenancy and

rental income details provided on request.


We understand that all mains services are available to the property including

electricity, gas, water and mains drainage, and that these are sufficient for the uses

of the property.

Interested parties are requested to satisfy themselves on the availability and adequacy

of all services.


Weston Airport is an attractive, well maintained airfield which has enjoyed a good

deal of investment over the past few years, bringing with it the potential for future

expansion and intensification of use.

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire not only an airport, but also offers alternative

opportunities to develop a private dwelling with associated agricultural sheds.
