The Forge Restaurant on Meath-Cavan border for sale

Property, which includes a large family house, has built up a loyal clientele

A well-known restaurant with a large family house just off the N3 on the Meath/Cavan border is on the market for €695,000 through joint agents Lisney and Smith Harrington.

The Forge Restaurant, which has built up a loyal clientele under the stewardship of owners Pauric and Irene White over the past 17 years, has space for 100 diners and comes with a professional kitchen, outdoor seating area and a nicely landscaped garden.

It is located in an 18th-century cut-stone building that has been refurbished and extended by the Whites. There is car parking for more than 30 vehicles on the 1.73-acre site which also includes a five-bedroom family house.

“There is excellent goodwill attached to the business with plenty of potential to grow the business further,” according to Lisney. “The bakery, kids cooking summer camps and adult cooking demonstrations are some of the recent business developments added to the business but these could be further developed to include corporate events and small weddings.”
