In January 1978, the bank advertised the sale of the premises, where it was acquired by Waterford Foods for £140,000. It later was used as a local art gallery and studio. This iconic building of history as recently acquired by property developer Mr Michael Ryan and was completely restored to the splendour you see here today.

Throughout the refurbishment we have worked closely with the local community to make sure that the historical artefacts and commissioned pieces of art are displayed within the remarkable iconic building. Close care has been taken to ensure the building’s original Cumbrian stonework has been preserved. Most ceramics and tableware have been designed and commissioned, while the garments the team proudly wear have been specially designed by renowned international Fashion designer Anthony Price and tailored in Hong-Kong for each individual.


Due to new government restrictions, we're closing the restaurant until further notice. We're sorry for any inconvenience. Please follow us on Facebook for more up to date information.

Merry Christmas and we hope you have a Happy New Year. 

Warm regards,

The Old Bank Dungarvan
