For Sale



BARRY AUCTIONEERS & VALUERS are delighted to bring to the market this unique cultural landmark located in the historical seaside town of Youghal.

Originally built in 1916 to serve the holiday town, the cinema was rebuilt in 1936 due to fire damage and has most recently been restored in 2017 to reflect the original glamour and features but with a modern, luxurious twist. Very careful attention was paid to the overall finishes internally and externally, right down to the authentic style windows, inviting hues, and distinctive art deco elements. Consisting of two floors, two screens, a wine bar, café, and function room, this is the perfect setting for a lavishly comfortable movie-watching experience.

The Regal Cinema has been an integral part of the East Cork community and presents a unique business opportunity for clients in the entertainment industry, or alternatively for a new hardworking team to continue the legacy of this cherished cinema.

Viewing highly recommended.
