Additional Information

We are delighted to offer for sale this prime development site in the centre of Dromara. The site extend to approximately 0.4 acres and in the past had planning for 12 duplex apartments although this has now lapsed.

At present the site has a bar and restaurant business which can be let out to a number of interested clients on a long term lease at £600 a week.

OReillys Bar and restaurant in Dromara has attracted people from far and wide over the years and became an Iconic building in the village. It is believed that OReillys had been used a coach house when the coaches ran between Carrickfergus and Dublin and had some famous visitors over the years including film star Errol Flynn. The substantial commercial unit has been recently refurbished and is ready for the potential client to walk in and open the doors for business. The property further benefits from living accommodation above in the form of a two bedroom apartment and a three bedroom apartment with the potential for extra income.

Units and associated car parking and landscaping. Potential purchasers should make their own enquiries as to the current planning status.
Whilst the property would suit a number of uses we would be of the opinion that the subject would lend itself to a residential
development with a mix of townhouses and semi-detached dwellings (subject to planning).
