Molly's Café

Molly's Café of 85 John Street, Kilkenny, Co. Kilkenny is being sold via Fran Grincell Properties for €340,000.

The property's listing on states, "Located in the heart of Kilkenny City, next to John's Bridge and Kilkenny Canal Square, this newly renovated and refurbished commercial/residential unit is a real opportunity for an ambitious couple to set their mark on the strong hospitality trade in Kilkenny City.

"The sale of Molly's Café is an exciting business opportunity. Its positioning in the centre of Kilkenny City and its proximity to the major tourist attractions Kilkenny City boasts, Molly's Café needs to be recognised for its potential and opportunity.

"The property is within one minutes' walk of The Canal Walk and access to Kilkenny Castle. It is 500 metres from 'The Parade' recognised as the centre of Kilkenny City and just a short walk off McDonagh Junction Shopping Centre. The building because of its unique location, does offer strong alternative uses.

"The business model to Molly's Café could easily be changed as its positioning close to John's Bridge and its proximity to several city centre Hotels, it would seem ideally located for an upmarket restaurant.

"The layout to the ground floor as the supplied floorplan shows is ideally laid out for its present business. The upgrade and refurbishment that the building received, guarantees no further investment is required. The kitchen is fully fitted out to cater for its present use and more. The seated area is again new in finish and has a high specification to its finish. The building in total is rewired and replumbed.

"A fully compliant fire alarm system is in place along with an alarm system that boasts ACC TV also. Everything on view has been refurbished, walls floors ceilings the lot and no expense was spared in the process.

"A small unit attached and to the left as you view the property, with its own entrance is ideally positioned for takeaway use.

"There's so much about Molly's and the potential it has it really is a solid purchase. Upstairs to the shop area has also been fully refurbished. A newly fitted stairs leads directly to what is presently used as a bedroom, bathroom, and secure office area. Again, the level of finish is really incredible with no money spared to achieve the required property finish.

"The overall on this sale is to recognise the location, the opportunity, and the potential that this property holds and at a price that makes sense. Ring Fran to discuss, there's a 7-day week viewing schedule on this property.
