Since purchasing the business in 1997 the present owners have spent a lot of time and effort establishing The Keel Row into one of the most reputable bar/restaurants on the island. Being the only licensed premises in Fionnphort it is very popular with the locals throughout the year as well as tourists who flock to this end of the island going to Iona. The car park for the ferry is directly opposite the property so it is very easily noticed. In many respects it has a captive market and has managed to build up a good name for its food, welcoming surroundings and atmosphere within the bar. Throughout the year the lounge bar has regular live music nights which are supported well by the locals and also “open mic” nights once a week. Being very supportive of the local community, the local darts team plays its games from here which is an added source of income during the quieter winter months.
The Keel Row offers a fantastic business proposition for any discerning purchaser looking to get into this picturesque area and operate an already very well established and profitable business. Offering an ideal change of lifestyle opportunity there is ample scope to increase as the business, at present, is run very much to suit our clients requirements. A viewing would be highly recommended in order to fully appreciate what is on offer and its potential.
