Brian Gaffney of agents Murphy Mulhall is seeking offers in excess of €1.35 million for the L-shaped site, which extends to 0.02 of a hectare (0.04 of an acre) and is located between the Ferryman bar and the Clayton Hotel.

The site is currently occupied by a single storey showroom premises and stores let to Crown Paints at €40,000 per annum, with the lease due to expire in August 2018.
