The well renowned Forge Restaurant and family residence situated in North Meath near the Cavan border is currently on the market for sale by Private Treaty with joint agents Lisney and Smith Harrington.
The Forge is an 18th Century cut stone building constructed by the Naper Family of Loughcrew, Oldcastle. It has been lovingly restored, refurbished and extended over the last 17 years by the current owners Pauric and Irene White.
The property comprises a superb restaurant for over 100 covers, a full professional kitchen, an external seating area overlooking a beautifully landscaped garden, a superb 4/5 bedroom residence and car parking for 31 cars all on a 0.7 hectare (1.73 acre) site.
The restaurant business is well known in the North Leinster region, having traded for many years. Pauric and Irene have built up a strong and loyal customer base. There is excellent goodwill attached to the business with plenty of potential to grow the business further. The bakery, kids cooking summer camps and adult cooking demonstrations are some of the recent business developments added to the business but these could be further developed to include corporate events and small weddings. The site which is beautifully landscaped could allow for a further extension to the property (subject to planning).
