‘Strong interest’ in popular Limerick pub as it is auctioned off online

A POPULAR Limerick bar that was auctioned last month has been sold.

The Track Bar in Garryowen went on sale in December and youbid.ie auctioneers said there was strong interest in the property.

The property was purchased at a reserve price of around € 200,000.

The pub was a popular spot for Treaty United fans after a game and is also where Dolores McNamara found out she had won the EuroMillions jackpot of 115 million euros.

It was at the Track Bar that Dolores verified her winning ticket and where her family and friends gathered to celebrate her life-changing victory.

Located directly across from Markets Field, the pub was often packed with football fans or people looking for a drink after a night out with the dogs.

The property comprises the Licensed Pub as well as a four bedroom apartment on the first floor which has its own kitchen, living room and balcony.

The main bar will be a familiar sight to many and has an open plan, solid oak bar, solid fuel stove, and all the appliances and accessories you would expect.

The second living room has a similar layout and includes a dart area, a solid mahogany bar, and its own set of toilets.

The bar had been open intermittently during the Covid-19 restrictions and regulars were only recently informed that it was going to go on sale.

A spokesperson for youbid.ie said: “Despite further foreclosure periods in 2021, the national auction platform Youbid.ie has continued to grow stronger with a total of twelve auctions in 2021, offering for sale over 500 properties, achieving a 96% success rate with average prices exceeding approximately 21% above their reserves.

“We look forward to a busy 2022 and will continue to hold monthly online auctions, 11 in total, with the first auction taking place on Thursday, February 17.”
