JACK NEALON'S PUB - DID IT CEASED TRADING OR DID IT NOT
Back in 2017 it was announced Jack Nealon's Pub was to close after more than 100 years in business. A few weeks later WPENGINE my web hosting provider organised a meet-up in Nealons and the place was packed. Later in the year it was announced that the Capel Street bar will remain open under new management who are working for the receiver that manages the property on behalf of the US private equity fund, Oaktree Capital.
Official Description: “This building, erected in 1867 by Charles Geoghegan for the wine and spirit merchant John O'Connor, forms an important element in the built heritage of Dublin. The upper floors are enlivened by colourful ceramic details while the well-executed carving and moulding to the shopfront add further aesthetic interest. The building, located as it is on the corner of two busy streets and having the aforementioned colourful detailing, is a focal point on the streetscape.”
“Capel Street was laid out in the seventeenth century by Humphrey Jervis to link the new Essex Bridge (now Grattan Bridge) to the Great North Road. Originally a fashionable residential street of houses it became largely commercialised around 1800 and this building stands as a testament to this later development.”
