Famous Dublin nightclub owned by Laois man is being sold

The legendary, timeless and monumental Copper Face Jacks has been put up for sale by Laois owner Cathal Jackson.

‘Coppers’ could sell for up to €40 or €50 million as Ballinakill man Jackson and his wife Paula are selling the nightclub and the Jackson Court Hotel to which it is attached.

Ex-Garda Jackson and wife Paula have owned the iconic premises for 23 years.

The enormous Dublin city centre night-club and the adjoining Jackson Court Hotel spans five buildings over three floors on Harcourt Street.

According to The Irish Times, the sale could fetch more than €40 million.

“Over the past 23 years I have been totally committed to setting up and establishing Copper Face Jacks as one of the most enduring and successful entertainment venues in Ireland.

“It is now time to hand over the reins to new owners who have the energy and the expertise to take Coppers to the next level,” Mr Jackson said to the national media outlet.

Last year, Jackson made The Rich List ahead of many high-profile celebrities.

The Ballinakill native is said to be worth €74 million, according to the list, up €5 million on last year.

Despite his wealth and achievements, the Laois native never forgot his roots – having sponsored the Laois footballers in previous years.
