So how about being a landlord for a weekend? Well, if you’ve always wanted to be a bar owner- but aren’t quite ready for that much of a dramatic career change- we’ve found the perfect Airbnb listing for you.
How about a lock-in at a cosy club in the south of Ireland, just four hours’ drive from Belfast? A couple are offering their entire traditional Irish pub for rent in rural Ireland. The property will be equipped with a bar, pumps, a till, a log fire and comfortable sofas, board games, a dart board and even skittles.
Based in Aglisg, Conroy’s Old Bar is a traditional village pub which has been converted into self-catering accommodation.
In addition to the quirky bar area, the property includes a fully functioning kitchen and two bedrooms. According to the owners, the pub sleeps up to four guests, and so is perfect for family breaks or friends looking to explore Ireland.
However, the best part about this news is that you are getting the entire property to yourself, and the rental price is VERY budget-friendly. At just £93 per night you would be crazy not to book this for your family shindig.
There’s no need to stay up late and serve customers though because the bar itself doesn’t have an alcohol licence anymore. It is now a residential property only.
However, the owners have given you the permission to supply your own booze.
The couple bought the property over a decade ago, but have since admitted they can’t bring themselves to sell it.
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 its uniqueness to it’s advantage, and so Ireland’s 1st Self Catering Pub Conroy’s Old Bar was born.”
It is set in the most beautiful location of Co Tipperary, and so is the perfect place to get away from it all.
The nearest shop is approximately four miles away, and the nearest restaurant six miles away. This means that the property is perfectly situated for those long walks and relaxing evenings.
Make the most of your downtime with something a little different, what a quirky little get away for the family!
