Agents Kelly & Co are seeking offers in excess of €1.1m for the Bus Bar and an adjoining development site at the heart of Skerries town centre in north county Dublin.

A long-established licensed premises, the Bus Bar comprises a traditional bar, main lounge, two smaller lounges, a pool room as well as stores, restrooms etc.

The adjoining site extends to 520 sq m (5,597 sq ft) and occupies a prominent position on the corner of Strand Street and Thomas Hand Street facing The Monument in Skerries town.

While there is a lapsed planning permission for two shops and three apartments presently, preliminary discussions have taken place with Fingal County Council with a view to progressing its development.

The site's TC (Town and District Centre) zoning allows for a mix of uses. Previous, lapsed planning permissions included retail, office, restaurant and residential uses indicating council planners' acceptance of a mixed-used development.

The corner site arrangement allows for increased street frontage and maximum exposure for any potential ground-floor use.

As one of the last development parcels available in Skerries town centre area, Shea Kelly believes prospective purchasers have a "fantastic opportunity" to develop both it and the existing Bus Bar business.

While the bar and site are being sold together, their sale in separate lots will be considered also.
