    The Former Ulster Bank Building in Blessington, Co Wicklow, for Sale

    The former Ulster Bank building, located on Main Street in Blessington, Co Wicklow, is now available for sale. It is being offered at a price of €600,000 through a private treaty. This historic building, spanning 5382 sq. ft., has been vacant since the permanent closure of Blessington Ulster Bank on April 21. The closure was part of NatWest’s decision to withdraw from the Irish market.

    The property, which is a protected structure, presents a prime freehold opportunity for potential buyers. With a total area of approximately 500 sq m (5,382 sq ft) spread over three levels, it offers ample space for a variety of uses. Cushman & Wakefield, the property agent responsible for the sale, has already received initial interest since placing the property on the market.

    Described as a nice building of good size, the former Ulster Bank building boasts a sizable yard at the back. Its attractive location on Main Street is expected to generate significant interest among potential buyers. The property’s sale presents the opportunity for new ownership and the revitalization of this historic building.
