'Strong interest' in popular Limerick pub as it sells in online auction

Popular Limerick bar up for auction

The Track Bar

A POPULAR Limerick bar that went up for auction last month has been sold.

The Track Bar in Garryowen was listed for sale in December and auctioneers said there was a strong interest in the property. 

The property was purchased for in and around the reserve price of €200,000.

The pub was a popular spot for Treaty United fans to head to after a match and it is also the place where Dolores McNamara discovered she had won the €115 million EuroMillions jackpot. 

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

Located just opposite the Markets Field Stadium, the pub would often be full with soccer fans or people looking for a drink after a night at the dogs. 

The property includes the licensed pub as well as a four bedroom apartment on the first floor which has its own kitchen, sitting room and balcony. 

The main bar will be a familiar sight for many and features an open plan layout, solid oak bar, solid fuel stove and all the fixtures and fittings you would expect. 

The second lounge area has a similar layout and features a darts area, solid mahogany bar and its own set of toilets. 

The bar had been open on and off throughout the Covid-19 restrictions and regulars were only told recently that it was going up for sale. 

A spokesperson said: "Despite further lockdown periods during 2021, National Auction platform has gone from strength to strength holding a total of twelve auctions during 2021, offering for sale over 500 properties, achieving a 96% success rate with average prices exceeding circa 21% above their reserves.  

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