"Ireland's Smallest Craft Beer Bar" is up for sale, and locals hope that whoever purchases it will reopen it as a pub.

Thomas O’Brennan Pub on Dominic Street has been closed for the past few years, with no social media updates since before the pandemic.

Now, the site of O'Brennans is up for sale for just shy of €800,000, with a 7 day license included should the new owner wish to reopen the well-loved bar.

The property is listed as a "prime city centre mixed use investment", and is arranged over a basement, ground and three upper floors. There are three apartments above the pub, which are currently let under resident tenancies. The pub itself is currently vacant, the listing confirms.

Described by Dublin by Pub as "easily the cosiest of any craft beer pub we’ve set foot in", O'Brennan's underwent exterior renovation before closing and boasted a small but perfectly formed outdoor area, perfect for pints and people watching.


Before closing, the cosy neighbourhood spot was well revered for its friendly bartenders, extensive gin and craft beer selection and traditional interior.

The full listing for the property, which is on the market for €780,000 is available HERE.
