A Dublin south city pub with residential rental income has come to the market with a €2m guide price.

McGowan’s pub at 174 Harold’s Cross Road, Dublin 6 extends to 4,700 sqft over ground floor. Its bar and lounge with fully fitted kitchen are supplemented with a beer garden to the rear.

It also benefits from €77,000 in rental income from residential units.

Estate agent Shane Markey of Lisney Morrisseys points out that its 0.24-acre site has “clear potential for re-development subject to planning”.

McGowan’s is located on a prominent corner trading position at the junction of Harold’s Cross Road, Kimmage Road Lower and Shamrock Villas and directly opposite both Mount Jerome Church and graveyard and Harold’s Cross Park – both of which can generate custom for the pub.
