Inside Conor McGregor’s new Dublin pub which UFC star paid over £1.5million for

UFC star Conor McGregor is expected to open his newly-renovated Dublin pub on July 5 – and drinkers will have plenty to enjoy.

McGregor bought The Black Forge Inn last year for around £1.5million and has been busy revamping it ever since, with some reports putting the refurb costs at an eye-watering €1 million.

Now the popular Drimnagh premises is almost ready to open its doors, and customers can expect a “world class” experience that will “change the game” according to messages on social media.

The Black Forge Inn said on Twitter: “World Class Cocktails, In A World Class Venue, Using World Class Spirits – The Black Forge – A World Class Experience Coming Soon 05.07.21.”

The post was retweeted by McGregor, who previously tweeted: “Premium Irish Beef, Organic Irish Butter, Proper Irish Whiskey at The Number One Irish Pub! Follow @blackforgeinn journey to opening.”

The Black Forge Inn has been closed since the first Covid-19 lockdown last March and returning pubgoers will quickly be made aware of McGregor’s ownership upon entering the Dublin boozer.

In a post on Instagram, The Black Forge Inn uploaded a picture featuring an ice-bucket filled with five bottles of McGregor’s Proper Twelve whiskey.

    According to Sunday World, there will also be an area called the ‘Bentley Room’ – which is for private functions.

    The Bentley was the previous name of the pub and could be a reference to some of the flash motors owned by The Notorious.
