Tranche of composite units in Glasthule offers development prospects
The Fitzgerald family is selling a group of four high street properties set on 4 acres in the seaside village of Glasthule, Co Dublin.
The properties at 1-3 Glasthule Road include the former Juggy’s Well restaurant, which Mrs Fitzgerald ran herself, and a former butcher’s shop, to which the owner recently retired. Two of her children also ran businesses in the other units in the portfolio.
Sales agent Quinn Agnew is looking for offers over €2.75 million.
Situated on the west side of the village near Glasthule Dart Station and opposite the Parish Church of St Joseph, it is situated between Eden Park and the Cowshed car park.
The strip of land consists of eight units on 521 m² and includes three retail units, a café/restaurant, two apartments, a large workshop and ancillary storage rooms. There is rear access to the site which is bordered on another side by a lane.
Juggy’s Well has literary connections – not only through Glasthule’s annual Bloomsday festival, but also with former Dalkey resident and writer Hugh Leonard, who frequented the restaurant in the 1970s. And No 2 Glasthule Road used to be a laundromat – and a well-known hangout for Bob Geldof and Johnnie Fingers of The Boomtown Rats.
Mrs Fitzgerald’s late husband, Eamonn, spent five years building a two-seater plane in the workshop – and he flew it as far away as Denmark.
The majority of the buildings are vacant, although No 2A Glasthule Road is leased with a lease expiring in November 2024.
Quinn Agnew’s Manus Agnew says the property offers asset management or development opportunities as it has potential for residential and commercial use. The large area in front of the shops and walkway is directly owned and could be used for outdoor seating and dining or for displaying goods.
Close to the Sandycove seafront as well as the People’s Park at Dún Laoghaire, the village is popular with visitors and offers a mix of established retailers and restaurants including Caviston’s Food Emporium and Restaurant, 64 Wine, Rococo, Hatch and the Pub of the Greedy Eagle .
