The well known An Seanachai Bar in west Waterford has been put for sale, along with 12 nearby holiday cottages, for a combined valuation of just under €1.6m.
The popular bar and restaurant has been trading for over 170 years and has connections to famine times when a room was built onto the property to accommodate mourners burying their dead in the nearby famine graveyard, Reilig an tSléibhe.
The property, which was trading until recently, has been put for sale by private treaty jointly by John Ryan of CBRE in Dublin along with Eamonn Spratt of REA Spratt in Dungarvan.
The sale is being handled in three lots – lot one is the bar and 12 holiday homes as well as a c.229 sq. m development site, lot two is just the bar while lot three is the holiday homes, either as a portfolio or individually.
The bar itself is in excellent condition throughout and has been the recipient of many awards in the recent past, including Heritage Pub of the Year and Black & White Pub of the year (Regional winner). The property retains many of its original features to include flagstone floors, open turf fires, thatched roof and traditional bar counter and fittings.
The original bar has been extended to provide restaurant and catering facilities (80 covers) with additional seating around a partially covered outdoor courtyard. The courtyard is also serviced by an outdoor bar.
On the doorstep of this property is the Ring Gaeltacht, the seaside village of Ardmore and the town of Youghal, while nearby is the recently officially opened Waterford Greenway which links Dungarvan to Waterford.
