The Quiet Man Pub for Sale in Cong, Co Mayo, Ireland

Pat Cohan’s Pub played a starring role in the 1952 classic film The Quiet Man… well, the exterior did anyway. In the village of Cong, the building was actually a shop and did not start serving pints until 2008 when it was remodeled into a pub — complete with a replica of the interior featured in the film.

The owners are hoping to sell it for €300,000 (about $396,000)… any takers???
