Planning permission is being sought for a 209-bedroom hotel at Clongriffin, Dublin 13 , by developer Gerry Gannon.
The application, filed by Gannon Properties, will see the development of a seven-storey hotel with a fitness centre, function rooms and other services, located close to a planned Dart station, reports the Irish Independent. The hotel development will also comprise of 20 apartments "for short-term letting for holiday and business use".
There has been an increase in planning applications close to where the proposed Gannon hotel development is over the past year, with CG Hotels receiving planning permission for two expansion projects adjacent to its Radisson Blu hotel at Dublin airport, which will cost in the region of €60 million, as well as a new hotel adjacent to it. The construction of a new terminal-linked four-star, 11-storey hotel, is also being planned for Dublin Airport's Terminal 2.
