Carrigaline is getting a swish new bar and restaurant.
Work is already well underway on Mable Lane, which will replace the former O’Cogáin’s pub on the town’s Main Street, and the business is currently on the lookout for staff.
The new bar, which is designed by Yelland Architects and Paul Haffey Design, promises to bring ‘an upscale neighbourhood feel with good food, classic cocktails, live music and good vibes’ as well as 60 new jobs to the town when it opens later this summer.
Mabel Lane will be the fourth addition to The Emporium Company’s family of bars, which include The Castle and Yard in Glanmire, JJ Coppingers in Midleton, and Tradehouse Central in Ballincollig.
“Our strategy from day one has been to bring a city-type bar experience to the suburbs, as we have successfully done with our other bars across the group,” said Group Manager at The Emporium Company, James Dullea.
“Carrigaline was a natural progression for us after Glanmire, Ballincollig and Midleton, due to its population, large hinterland and the amount of development going on in the area. We have seen that there is a huge market for a high-quality bar and food offering outside of Cork City and this is what we have heavily focused on since we began acquiring assets,” he added.
Those interested in applying for the new jobs are advised to sign up for the newsletter through mabellane.ie to view all available positions.
