The Shebeen Bar, Cahersiveen, Co. Kerry

We are delighted to bring to market the well-loved Shebeen Bar in the town of Cahirciveen. An exceptional opportunity to acquire this busy traditional Irish bar and restaurant with accommodation on the Ring of Kerry.

The Shebeen Bar is a residential seven-day licensed premises with striking street frontage and an overhead five-bedroom residential unit. Benefitting from a prominent trading position in the heart of Cahirciveen, a popular tourist destination on the Skellig Coast, this thriving traditional bar and restaurant with additional dance licence has deep roots within the community. Offering the town’s only private function room.

The Shebeen enjoys year-round support and goodwill from the South Kerry community, hosting local birthdays, anniversaries and family celebrations throughout the year. Attentively run by the same family for 50 years, The Shebeen is synonymous with live music and being a traditional Irish Pub. Newly granted planning permission for an additional 5 bedrooms with balconies presents an exciting opportunity for its new owner to further develop this air bnb side to the business. With limited accommodation choices in the area, The Shebeen is well placed to attract new customers to the landmark location on the Wild Atlantic Way, and with plans by the Local Council to develop the O’Connell quarter, (A pedestrian Plaza), beside the property more opportunities for expansion of trade are imminent.

A favourite on the Ring of Kerry, with ample parking and a large rear garden and side entrance, there’s scope to stamp your individuality on this classic Irish pub while enhancing its offering.

Spread over three storeys, the ground floor comprises a substantial traditional style front bar opening into a lounge/function room with dance floor, professional kitchen, ladies and gents toilets and storeroom and owners occupiers accommodation of 5 bedrooms, 2 offices, kitchen, living room, bathroom and separate WC. Gateway to the Skellig region.

Caherciveen makes an ideal base for exploring Kerry’s top tourist attractions including spectacular beaches, world class golf, water sports and hiking trails. At the foot of Beentee Mountain and overlooking Valentia Harbour, Irish and overseas visitors flock to this natural beauty spot which hosts three festival weekends annually. With the South Kerry Greenway due to open in 2025, the 27 km long cycling and walking trail will be the most scenic in Europe. Stretching from Glenbeigh to Caherciveen, the greenway will benefit from extensive international marketing and is expected to attract 250,000 visitors a year. Family owned for 50 years, The Shebeen is sold with the good will of established trade and excellent redevelopment potential, with viewing of this landmark pub and restaurant highly recommended.
