Pub with own cinema has a good image

A Cork City bar near UCC, complete with first-floor, 35-seat cinema, is for sale for €225,000, about the price of a three-bed semi-d, with or without a large flat-screen TV.

New to market this week, with agent Declan Hickey, of Downing Commercial, is the Beggarman pub, on Gilabbey street, between the UCC campus and the Crawford College of Art, one kilometre from the city centre.

It previously traded as Ellis’s, and is at the corner with 98 Street, which links to Barrack Street and which is undergoing its own, quiet, hippy/hipster revolution.

The Beggarman has 90’frontage and dual street access. Also close by is St Fin Barre’s Cathedral.

A one-time first-floor snooker/pool room was converted to a 35-seat cinema 18 months ago, complete with salvaged, original velvet cinema seating and curtained walls, showing movies and TV shows and series, with Game of Thrones and Sopranos shows popular.

Mr Hickey describes the building as well-proportioned, with 1,600 sq ft at ground floor, and 900 sq ft upstairs.

The property has a full seven-day publican’s licence and it may be bought as is, or redeveloped as apartments, cafe/coffee house or other uses, subject to planning approval.
