In the mid 1930’s, Morrisseys was established in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary, by Daniel Morrissey, a senior politician in Ireland for 35 years and former Minister of Industry & Commerce.

In 1946, with a general practice well established, the company moved to Dublin, encouraged by several prominent members of the Dublin Licensed Trade. Dan was joined by his two sons, Tony & Liam and they formed a new company Daniel Morrissey & Sons Ltd T/A Morrissey’s.

The company made fast progress and became one of the leading Auctioneers, Valuers and Advisors in Ireland to the licensed trade, concentrating mainly on the greater Dublin area.

In 1956, Dan Morrissey was succeeded by his son Tony who further expanded the practice placing particular emphasis on the Sale Acquisition and Valuation of Licensed Premises and Hotel Properties.

Tony Morrissey was elected President of the Irish Auctioneers & Valuers Institute (I.A.V.I.) in 1973 a position previously held by his father Dan in 1952.

In 1983, Tony Morrissey Jnr. (FRICS FSCSI), joined the company, followed by his brother Bill (MRICS MSCSI) in 1987, both serving their apprenticeship under their father Tony, and subsequently in 1993, they took over the company from him.

Both Bill and Tony have continued on the traditions of the Company, which is currently a small Independent practice specialising in all aspects of licensed related property, including Public Houses, Hotels and Restaurants. The Company is also a long-time member of the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI) which merged in April 2011 with The Irish Auctioneers & Valuers Institute (IAVI) and The RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors).

To date Morrissey’s has handled in excess of 1,000 Licensed Property Sales / Acquisitions and have also carried out in excess of 1,750 Valuations of different hospitality properties in accordance with The RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and The SCSI (Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland) standards.
