New 135-Seater Restaurant Set For Landmark Rathmines Building in Dublin
A new restaurant has been earmarked for the former Lenehans hardware store in Rathmines, Dublin 6, which is expected to seat 135 diners.
Savills is quoting a rent of ‚ā¨150,000 for the landmark building, which has traded as Lenehans for more than 70 years, reports The Irish Times.¬†
Planning permission has been granted for the entire property¬†to be converted for use as a restaurant, with¬†large-scale Irish and UK family restaurant operators likely to be attracted to the premises, which provides an open-plan ground-floor space of 286sq m (3,078sq ft); a first floor of 115sq m (1,237 sq ft) and a rear yard of 56sq m (602sq ft).
Fallon & Byrne plans to open a 10,000sq ft food hall ¬†in the Swan Shopping Centre in Rathmines, while Starbucks recently opened its¬†second restaurant in busy capital city¬†suburb.
