Inside Conor McGregor's plush new pub The Black Forge Inn which cost UFC star £2m and will sell Proper No Twelve whiskey

CONOR McGREGOR has given fans a tour inside his plush new pub The Black Forge Inn.

The Irish superstar purchased the property, situated in his hometown of Crumlin, Dublin, in 2019 for £2million.



It is the same place where he delivered bottles of his Proper No Twelve whiskey in Christmas 2018.

But now McGregor, 33, owns the place and offered a behind-the-scenes look on social media.

It is classically styled with a restaurant area as you walk in with chairs by the bar, an open kitchen and seating space for customers.

But as you go further inside, there is a bar section purely for drinkers, sure to sell McGregor's popular Proper No Twelve whiskey.

Bar staff can be seen making fancy cocktails – including one making use of a blow torch.

On the wall is a painted stencil of the same tiger that McGregor has tattooed on his chest.

BIG PLANS

The former two-weight UFC champion plans to open a chain of pubs across the world.

And he made headlines earlier in the year after also acquiring The Marble Arch in Drimnagh – the scene of his infamous assault on a man in 2019.

Along with the pubs, his other businesses are flying, which include sports recovery spray Tidl, a fashion line with David August and fitness app 'McGregor Fast'.

Earlier in the year, McGregor sold shares in Proper 12, in a deal which banked him close to £130m.

It made him Forbes' highest-paid athlete over the last 12 months, pipping footballers Lionel Messi, 34, and Cristiano Ronaldo, 36.

And McGregor's wealth would have rocketed further after his pay-per-view trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier, 32, this month.

But it ended in disaster for the southpaw, who broke his tibia before the end of round one, losing by doctor stoppage.

McGregor later underwent surgery and will spend the next six months on crutches while being handed a six month medical suspension.

But due to the unprecedented ending to their trilogy, both he and Poirier have called for a FOURTH fight between themselves.
