Conor McGregor looking to buy another pub as UFC superstar 'sells his yacht that was berthed on Ireland coast'

UFC superstar Conor McGregor is reportedly planning to expand his pub empire after closing in on the sale of his luxury yacht.

According to The Currency, the Irishman is on the verge of cashing in on his boat that is 'berthed' in south Dublin.




And it's claimed he'll use the funds generated from the sale to purchase the O’Neill’s pub located in the heart of Dun Laoghaire.

McGregor's accountant, Alan Geraghty, is said to be in advanced talks to purchase the property.

O'Neill's, a 4,730 sq ft two-storey pub, was put on the market two months ago and has a reported asking price of £681,000 (€800,000).

Should McGregor acquire O'Neill's, the property will become the second public house under his ownership.

In 2020, the former two-division UFC champion purchased the Black Forge in his hometown of Crumlin for a reported fee of £1.7million (€2million).

McGregor, 33, then spent a whopping £850,000 (€1million) renovating the venue and transforming it into a gastropub.

The MMA star plans to purchase more pubs in his homeland and is also contemplating acquiring some 'overseas'.

He said: "With the enjoyment I have had, and am having throughout this whole process, I definitely feel this is only the beginning for me as a publican.

"Ireland’s public houses are renowned worldwide and it is a great honour to have my own representation now in the mix.

"I will explore other venues across Ireland and overseas for sure.

"I am passionate about hospitality and entertaining, and with the Black Forge I am only beginning."

McGregor is currently recovering from the broken leg he suffered in his UFC 264 trilogy with Dustin Poirier.

The former feather and lightweight champion is making a faster than expected recovery and already feels capable of kicking again.

He told Adam's Apple: "I feel like I could kick right now.

“I honestly feel like I could kick right now, but I’ve just got to listen to the doctors, listen to the people that are guiding me.

"That’s what I’ve done so far, I’ve committed myself to the work and I’m back on the feet.

"It’s so good to be back on the feet.”
