UFC superstar Conor McGregor has seen his pub The Black Forge Inn become something of a celebrity hotspot featuring several big names in recent weeks.
As ‘Notorious’ travels the world on his £2.9million Lamborghini superyacht and trains for an MMA comeback, his impressive empire continues to grow.
The 33-year-old recently bought The Waterside bar in Howth, a bustling and affluent Dublin suburb, adding to his pub portfolio, which includes Black Forge Inn and Marble Arch.
In 2019, McGregor purchased The Black Forge Inn, located near his hometown of Crumlin.
The UFC’s first-ever double champion has reportedly spent £1.7million to become the owner of the property and is believed to have spent a further £868,000 to convert the venue into a gastro-pub.
The popular establishment survived an attempted petrol bombing earlier this year and continues to thrive, having recently hosted former Celtic striker and football legend John Hartson.
