Former Gorgeous salon for sale on George’s Quay in Cork

Described as a commercial development opportunity on a modest scale is the proposed sale of No 23 George’s Quay, in Cork city centre.

The river-fronting mid-terraced 19th century property is a refurbishment job, says selling agent Aisling Doyle of Frank V Murphy & Cork, describing it as effectively shell and core, and she guides at €75,000.

No 23 has ground floor retail/office, with two further floor plus attic overhead, giving a total floor area of 1,135 sq ft, with 178 sq ft at ground.

The freehold property is next to Callanan’s pub by the corner of Mary Street, and is close to Parliament Bridge, 100m from the South Mall, and is part of a quayside of 18th and 19th building, several of them bow-fronted.

Most recently used as a hair salon, No 23’s neighbouring occupiers include the new Intreo offices on Georges Quay, as well as a mix of shops, offices, take-aways, bars, and Filter and Velo cafes.

It looks out on the south channel of the River Lee to Fr Mathew Quay, and is close to Sullivan’s Quay where the former Revenue offices building is expected to be redeveloped by BAM for hotel and office uses.

“It’s is a fantastic refurbishment opportunity in the city centre, with retail ground floor with storage on the first and second floors,” says Ms Doyle.
