Permission Granted For New Temple Bar Hotel

By Dave Simpson

Dublin City Council has granted planning permission for a 12-bedroom boutique hotel at the corner of Merchant's Arch and Temple Bar Square in Dublin.

The development of the hotel will involve the demolition of a two-storey building that houses the Irish Pub Shop and the subsequent construction of a five-storey over-basement building that will include a ground floor retail unit with the hotel occupying its top four floors, as reported by The Irish Independent.

Objections

Dublin City Council gave to the go ahead for the hotel despite objections from two local residents' groups, which expressed concerns that it could lead to the development of a new "super-pub", and An Taisce, which stated that the demolition of the existing building on the site of the proposed hotel could not be justified and that it should be reinstated to its original three storeys instead.
