Daniel Nelligan, owner of Mrs. Nelligan’s Bakery & Coffee Shop, has just announced that he is to put the business up for sale.

There has been a Nelligan’s bakery in Castleisland since 1945 and most Kerry people will instantly recognize the name as symbolizing fresh bread, cakes and other specialties including the renowned Nelligan’s Rich Christmas Brack.

No. 74 Main Street

Daniel and his wife Louise have operated the business at 74 Main Street since January 2010.

Having moved from Castleisland to Laois five years ago the decision is not unexpected with the husband and wife team having other growing business interests in the midlands which have curtailed their daily involvement in the Castleisland business in recent years. Despite this, the bakery continues to prosper and the café and deli enjoy a steady trade under the management of Duagh woman Helen O’Keeffe and an experienced team.

A Turn-Key Opportunity

The business will continue to operate as is until sold and Daniel is confident that it will attract huge interest given its history, location in the centre of town and the fact that it is a turn-key opportunity.

“The business is likely to appeal to a wide range of people,” according to Daniel.

“It would be ideal for either an investor who wants a proven return with little day to day input or for someone looking to commence business with little risk and an experienced team that can commence or continue trading immediately.

Christmas Fast Approaching

“With Christmas fast approaching, it would be a great time for any interested party to get in touch.

I will talk to any genuinely interested party and can be contacted on or on 087-2225795,” he said.
