This compares to €43 million in 30 pub sales in Dublin the previous year.

On the one hand, the volume of transactional activity in the Dublin pub sector last year was disappointing considering the volume of pent-up demand prevailing for good licensed premises in the capital. However, on the other hand, it is largely reflective of strong economic & trading conditions that have encouraged publicans to remain in business. Good trading conditions boosted turnover and profitability, leading to a corresponding uplift in the value of the underlying asset, which encouraged many publicans to continue trading
