Two Cork bars, one a classic of the old-school, the other a modern bar and restaurant built in 2008 are new to market, being sold as well-trading entities.
Guided at €550,000 is the Crossbarry Inn, a residential licensed premises west of the city in Crossbarry village, near Innishannon and six miles from Bandon. It’s a well-kept 3,200 sq ft premises with three overhead bedrooms and living accommodation, on a half acre site with parking.
Considerable new housing was built in Crossbarry (which used to be on the West Cork Railway route) in the early to mid-2000s, and there’s scope to add to the business, suggests agent Cearbhall Behan, of Behan Irwin Gosling (BIG) & Downing Commercial.
“The Crossbarry Inn has been doing strong consistent turnover due to its strategic location within a large catchment area. There’s a great opportunity to generate a food business.”
Meanwhile, also new to market with BIG is The City Bounds Bar, above Wilton and Togher at Lehenaghmore, on the Cork City and County boundary on the side of the Airport hill.
It was developed in 2008 to a very high standard and as a labour of love for local man Pascal O’Sullivan whose ambition it had been to build a quality bar and restaurant. Following his passing way, it was run by his family, now seeking to retire.
The City Bounds is close to the large and on-going Ruden Homes Lehenaghmore house development Manor Farm, and comprises 5,000 sq ft, over three floors, with open plan bar/restaurant area. It’s guided at €750,000, on a half acre with parking for 50 cars.
