Laois man behind Dublin nightclub sells up to turn Coppers into crock of gold

Legendary Dublin nightclub Copper Face Jacks, affectionately known as Coppers, has been put on the market for a reported price of €40 million. 

The nightclub is owned by the low-profile Cathal Jackson from Ballinakill in Laois and Paula Jackson. 

Mr Jackson told the Irish Independent he has been committed to building the hugely successful nightclub up for over two decades.

"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," he said. 

Coppers, in the heart of Harcourt Street in central Dublin, is one of the best-known nightclubs in the country. The sale is being handled by estate agent Dermot Curtin. 

The venue is attached to the 36-bedroom Jackson Court Hotel. Breanagh Catering, the company behind Coppers and the Jackson Court, made a profit of €3.5m in its 2018 financial year, €4.4m in 2017, and €4.3m in 2016.
