Property Description:

'An Cupán Café', Mountshannon, Co. Clare

Restaurant, living accommodation and back garden for sale by private treaty.
"An Cupán Cafe" is a very well-known restaurant located in the middle of Mountshannon village on the main thoroughfare between Portumna and Ennis (R352).
The business is not presently in operation but there is enormous potential for the right person to make this into a very profitable business. Mountshannon is a very popular location with locals and visitors - the famed White Tailed Sea Eagles nesting locally have recently attracted large amounts of visitors.

In its entirety the property consists of a 2 storey central village building that has been substantially and tastefully extended to the rear that now accommodates a restaurant, kitchen, baking area, food preparation areas, food storage areas, 2 staff living rooms, a 1 bedroomed private apartment, a rear garden and some off-street parking.

This property is located in the heart of the historic village of Mountshannon - a picturesque tourist village situated on the northern shore of Lough Derg, that has a marina capable of berthing the many boats and cruisers which explore the lake each year. The lake facilitates all kinds of water based sports be it sailing, sail boarding, cruising and angling, and Mountshannon gets a good share of these.
An Cupán Café is located on the northern side of the main R352 linking Ennis with Portumna and Birr. It is 25 miles from Ennis, Shannon Airport or Limerick and 18 miles from the M7.
As well as lake based potential there are possibilities in the immediate area to appeal to diners as there are many holiday homes in and around Mountshannon.
