Scruffy Duffy's

Scruffy Duffy's of Mill Street, Callan, Co. Kilkenny, is being sold via Fran Grincell Properties for €300,000.

The property's listing on states, "Recognising the quality of the structure, the quality of the specification and the size of the site is all part of acknowledging the opportunity as well as the potential that Duffy's Bar and Lounge has to offer. Duffy's Hostelry is a well recognised establishment capable of catering for every section of the hospitality trade.

"Public Houses are all about location and type and Duffy's Bar and Lounge is about that. Sitting on approximately an acre site in the centre of Callan and with private parking there's many options to Duffy's Public House.

"A private Bar snug to one side. A large function room, a fully equipped commercial kitchen, a covered smoking area and up to date Ladies & Gents toilets, gift any new owner with a more or less turnkey scenario. A modern cold room system has only recently been installed for draught beers. There's an up-to-date fire alarm system as well as security alarm system.


"Upstairs to Duffy's is a turnkey 3 bedroomed house with a large living room and kitchen/dining room. The large side access offers potential to develop further this property.

"The residential section can easily be accessed and is in turn key order with 3 double bedrooms with bespoke storage and a centrally located family bathroom.

"The living space off a large kitchen dining area, with modern units and an adjacent sitting room are both perfection in size and condition.

"Scruffy Duffy's as it was fondly known, is steeped in the history of Callan town. The premises was fully renovated and sympathetically refurbished in 2002. Scruffy Duffy's operated very successfully until recently and catered for every aspect of the changing trade of the public house.

"This turnkey premises has every attribute required for a successful hostelry. Located in the heart of Callan town and overlooking the old monastery and the Kings River the setting is magnificent and offers the ideal party or wedding venue.


"Retirement and COVID-19 has forced this vibrant business to come to the market. With a full family home in top condition overhead the premises, this is the ideal purchase for an ambitious couple to enter the licensed trade.

"The property is priced to sell and breaks down into tremendous value. The volume of space as our floor plan shows is staggering and only surpassed by the potential of the premises.

"Ring Fran to discuss and view. There's a 7-day week schedule to view on this property.
