1. Yes, a pub licence can be moved from one public house to another. Save in exceptional circumstances, this is done on a permanent basis by an application under the Licensing (Ireland) Act, 1902. Effectively, you extinguish a pub licence on one public house and transfer it to another public house. The application is made in the Circuit Court. You would generally employ both solicitor and barrister to make the application. the consent of the fire officer and the planning officer is necessary in making the application as is the consent of the local Gardai.
