The Fitzgerald family is selling a group of four main-street properties set on 1.98 acres in the seaside village of Glasthule, Co Dublin.

Located at 1-3 Glasthule Road, the properties include the former Juggy’s Well restaurant, which Mrs Fitzgerald operated herself, as well as a former butcher’s shop where the operator recently retired. Two of her children also operated businesses in the other units of the portfolio.

Selling agent Quinn Agnew is seeking offers in excess of €2.75m.

Located on the west side of the village close to Glasthule Dart Station and opposite St Joseph’s parish church, it is situated between Eden Park and the Cowshed car park.

The strip of properties is comprised of eight units over 521sqm and include  three retail units, a café/restaurant, two apartments, a large workshop and ancillary storerooms. There is rear access to the site which is bounded on another side by a laneway.

Juggy’s Well has literary associations – not just through Glasthule’s annual Bloomsday festival, but also with former Dalkey resident and writer Hugh Leonard who used frequent the restaurant in the 1970s. And No 2 Glasthule Road was previously a laundrette – and a renowned meeting place for Bob Geldof and Johnnie Fingers of The Boomtown Rats.

Mrs Fitzgerald’s late husband, Eamonn, spent five years building a two-seater aeroplane in the workshop – and he flew it to destinations as far away as Denmark.

The majority of the buildings are vacant, though No 2A Glasthule Road is let under a lease expiring in November 2024.

Manus Agnew of Quinn Agnew says the property offers asset management or development opportunity, as it has potential for both residential and commercial uses. The large area to the front of the shops and footpath is in direct ownership and could be used to facilitate outdoor seating and dining area or for displaying goods.

Located close to the seafront at Sandycove, as well as the People’s Park in Dún Laoghaire, the village is popular with visitors and boasts a mix of established retailers and restaurants, including Caviston’s Food Emporium and restaurant, 64 Wine, Rococo, Hatch, and the Greedy Eagle pub.
