The Baravan: Irish businessman hopes his 'bespoke caravan bar' will shake up Irish social scene

Sarah-Jane Murphy

An enterprising Irishman is hoping to take the country's social scene on the move with a bespoke 'caravan bar'.

Mark Mooney (25), an engineer, explained how he and some friends came up with idea for his 'baravan' while spending time at his family’s caravan in Mullaghmore, Co. Sligo.

Since buying a second hand van from an elderly man in Tyrone, he has been hard at work designing and fitting out the unique restoration project.

Mooney currently works in Dublin, and has been diligently travelling to Tyrone on weekends to work on his pet-project since July.

The finished product will be a movable party venue with its very own sound system a full working bar and a fully operable heating system.

“You just hook it onto the back of a vehicle and take it to where the party is,” he explained.

When asked how the idea came about, he said: “Me and my friends came down to my mobile home in Mullaghmore, Co. Sligo, and one of the guys is a bar man and we had a keg.

“We set the keg up with a few optics and converted the mobile home into a bar and I just thought it was a great idea - that’s how it came around."

We can't wait to visit.
