Castletown Inn guiding at €1.4m
The Castletown Inn in Celbridge, Co. Kildare, which sits on a half acre site is to be auctioned on July 5 with a guide price of between €1.4m and €1.5m. Noel Devine, who has owned and operated the pub and overhead restaurant for about 30 years, is selling the property as he plans to retire.
Joint agents REA Coonan and John P. Younge point to the development potential of the property as it has a car park to the rear consisting of 43 spaces as well as an adjoining two-storey house.
Castletown Inn itself is a two-storey property extending to 557 sq m (6,000 sq ft) and contains a spacious lounge, a cosy Speakers Bar as well as the upstairs Green's restaurant with a separate entrance and seating for approximately 65 people.
"This family-run Inn has been well run and maintained. It has an excellent trade for both alcohol and food sales, which has been built up over the years by the present owner," says auctioneer John Younge.
"The adjoining house has not been lived in for some years and is in need of modernisation. As it is located on the Main Street, it has potential for use as a shop or offices," explains Philip Byrne of REA Coonan.
Consisting of about 0.5 acres, the square site has frontage and profile to the main street and offers both residential and commercial development potential.
With a population of about 20,000 people, Celbridge is only 5km from Lucan, Leixlip and Celbridge and is just off the M4 Motorway.
