Caiseal Mara

The Caiseal Mara came up for auction in Dublin and the only bid of €160,000 didn’t meet the reserve price of €175,000. However, it was bought after auction on the same day, we think, for the reserve price.

Word went out that it was Ciaran McKenna that bought it.

Ciaran McKenna is the owner or franchisee of Centra, Moville.

People (including a local auctioneer) concluded that it was the Centra owner that bought.


That was incorrect.

He has enough on his hands running Centra never mind running a 48-bedroomed hotel, bar and restaurant.

It was the wrong Ciaran McKenna!


The Caiseal Mara-owning Ciaran McKenna is from Dublin.

He owns his own construction company.

He plans to open in March by St. Patrick’s Day.
