O Rahilly St, Ballina



For Sale



A commercial hospitality premises in the heart of Ballina, Co Mayo is now available for lease. The premises, trading as the Broken Jug, is located in Ballina's main business streets at top of town beside the iconic Post Office building. The Broken Jug first opened its famous big oak doors in July 1995 where a very successful bar and food operation was established. It is one of the largest hospitality premises in the region with a size of circa 4,500 square feet.

There are three different entrances to the premises from 3 different streets, including a direct entry from Ballina's main town centre commercial car park that has the recently opened Aldi as its main anchor supermarket. While across the street is one of 2 Lidl supermarkets in the town so the Broken Jug is an ideal location for shoppers to take a break. Indeed, the break could include and overnight or weekend stay as the Premises (Pre the Broken Jug) also housed the formal Central Hotel in Ballina. There are two floors of extra bedrooms on site in the premises which means the premises has the excellent potential to be developed into a Boutique Hotel or perhaps short-term rental apartments that would complement the turnkey bar and restaurant.

Ballina is a stunning location in North Mayo along the Wild Atlantic way that attracts more and more visitors every year and in 2023 Ballina will celebrate its 300th birthday since the formal establishment of the town which will bring a year long programme of celebratory events that will "honour the past, celebrate the present and inspire hope for the future".
