Kildare Property Watch: Winning Post Newbridge pub site sold for apartments

A development site with full planning permission in Eyre Street, Newbridge, recently sold for €400,000.

The site of the former Winning Post pub, which is now vacant, has planning permission for nine apartments.

It was offered for sale recently on The Leinster Property Auction’s Iamsold online site on February 3, in partnership with Byrne Malone Estate Agents, Newbridge.


The site, which was listed for over €360,000, attracted a lot of interest and received several auctions before successfully selling for €400,000. The 0.12 acre auctioned site included The Winning Post and the adjoining Patrick Street site to the rear.


The building permit allows six apartments to be located on the site of The Winning Post, which is to be demolished, with three other apartments on the site of rue Patrick.

The online auction company has scheduled 10 online auction dates in 2022. There is no charge to enter a property into the auction and the next auctions are on March 10 and April 14. Contact iamsold on 01 244 0000 to arrange a free property valuation or for more information visit
