Landmark Ballsbridge Pub Posts Big Profits

Dublin 4 pub Doheny and Nesbitt recorded profits of €279,000 in 2014, as the famous haunt for celebrities and politicians alike saw a big upturn in business.

The pub, based on Baggot Street in Ballsbridge, saw post-tax profits rise 57 per cent in 2014 compared to the previous year, the Irish Independent reports.

Swigmore Inn Ltd, which operates the pub with company directors Tom and Paul Mangan, said that Doheny and Nesbitt "enjoyed an excellent year last year. We are very happy with how the pub is performing".

The spot is popular with politicians and has made international news in recent years by being visited by celebrities such as Rihanna, Bruce Springsteen and Van Morrison. IMF director Christine Lagarde dropped in with Michael Noonan and Joan Burton in 2013 when she was in the country.

The pub is the flagship of the Mangan Group, which also operates The Glenside Pub in Churchtown, the Stoneboat in Kimmage as well as Smyth's and Birchalls in Ranelagh.
