This is the latest landmark property to hit the market in Cork in recent months.
In March a property at 4, 5 and the upper levels of 6 Winthrop Street, which is a stone's throw from Patrick's Street and is among the most popular shopping streets in the second city, went ont eh market guiding €4m.
That property, which was being handled by Cohalan Downing, was eventually sold by private treaty.
While retail rents in the prime areas of the city are still flat on recent years, there have been signs of an increase in business in the immediate areas. The fact that the lease on the WInthrop Street property had a relatively short time left to run also helped attract buyers.
Interest in the Cork market and other cities outside Dublin is growing, particularly because the market in the capital has grown so sharply in recent months.
