Hanged Man’s Pub and Restaurant, Milltown, Newbridge, Co. Kildare

Coonan Property are delighted to introduce this long established, award winning pub and restaurant to the market. The Hanged Man’s Pub and Restaurant is an award-winning, fully licenced bar and restaurant that is currently trading with a fantastic reputation in the village of Milltown. The building itself is steeped in local history, having been built in the early 18th century to facilitate the development of The Grand Canal. The property was first used as a depot for the canal. Later it became an RIC barracks, but in more recent times it has settled comfortably into its role as a magnificent bar and eatery. The current owners have cultivated a thriving Irish pub/restaurant, and it is renowned for great drinks, food, and atmosphere, with locals and those travelling far and wide to visit the establishment.

This attractive property can be found resting in a stunning, picturesque location on the banks of the Grand Canal on approx. 2.5 acres (1ha). It proudly sits in a prominent roadside location with ample customer parking. This business has an excellent reputation with substantial annual trade presenting a unique opportunity to acquire a traditional bar and restaurant in the heart of County Kildare. The property also has the benefit of a two bedroom apartment at first floor level and adjoining the property is an additional two bedroom stone cut apartment with two bathrooms, sitting room and dining room. The Hanged Man’s is the proud winner of the Black and White Pub of the Year twice in a row and is also the only pub to win the East Regional Pub of the Year Awards twice in succession. It was also listed by Barfly Irish Times as one of the top ten pubs in Ireland.

The business is ideally located adjacent to the Curragh Racecourse and is a mere ten minutes’ drive from Newbridge. The towns of Naas and Kildare are in close proximity and access to the M7 motorway nearby meaning Dublin City Centre is less than an hour away.

The property comprises a two storey over basement building which has been divided to provide restaurant and bar facilities for over 100 patrons with additional function rooms at ground and first floor level. The property benefits from a fully fitted kitchen which serves all restaurant and functions rooms. The interior has a traditional Irish feel throughout, with a mixture of flagstone and wooden floors, stone fire surrounds, wood burning stoves, open fires, wood panelled walls etc.

This property comes with the benefit of full planning permission for a 20 bedroom boutique hotel and all associated works. This provides superb potential for expansion of the existing business for the disconcerting buyer. Details of planning can be found under Kildare County Council Planning Reference 21/1263.

The guide price for this property is €1,100,000 and the sole agents are inviting ‘best bids’ by the 30th November 2023. For more information, please contact Will Coonan or Philip Byrne on 01 628 6128 or by email at
