If you’ve always dreamed of owning your own bar, but either don’t have the money or you can’t take the risk then this is the Airbnb listing of your dreams.
An Irish couple has made a unique offering, an entire traditional Irish pub for rent in the heart of rural Ireland complete with bar, pumps, a till, a log fire and comfortable sofas, board games, a dart board and even skittles!
Located in Aglish (nr.Borrisokane) Co. Tipperary, Conroy’s Old Bar is an authentic village pub that’s been converted into self-catering accommodation.
As well as the quirky bar area, the property boasts a fully functioning kitchen and two bedrooms – it can sleep up to four guests, so it’s perfect for both family breaks and friends looking to go exploring.
Prices for the holiday home start at €50 per person per night, with an additional €10 per child.
The listing reads:
“If you like your accommodation/vacation home rental to be an experience in itself, then The World’s 1st Self Catering Pub – Conroy’s Old Bar is for you!
A traditionally characterful, authentic Irish, village bar, discreetly converted into self-catering accommodation. Conroy’s Old Bar is especially suited to those who have a love of the great outdoors. Who would like to experience the true beauty and tranquillity of rural Ireland, whilst staying in a converted authentic Irish village bar.”
No need to stay late serving the locals though as the bar itself no longer has a liquor licence, so it’s now a residential property.
However, you’re more than welcome to supply your own booze.
Couple Dave and Erron bought the property over a decade ago, but revealed that they couldn’t bring themselves to get rid of the bar features.
Erron explained: “We originally thought that the property would make good self catering accommodation because of its size.
“But it wasn’t until we were refitting the kitchen in the main house and we were using the pub as our ‘make do kitchen’, that we actually came up with the idea of keeping the bar intact and using it’s uniqueness to it’s advantage, and so Ireland’s 1st Self Catering Pub Conroy’s Old Bar was born.”
It’s the perfect place to get away from it all as the pub is in a beautifully secluded area of Co Tipperary.
