Developer Johnny Ronan Plans New Hotel For 'Dublin's Tallest Building' Development

High-profile developer Johnny Ronan is reportedly lodging plans to build the tallest building in Dublin, which if given the green light will include a 110-bedroom hotel and be topped by a restaurant and bar with panoramic views over the city.

The proposed "Tara House" development, located at Tara Street on the southside of The Liffey, will include a 17-storey tower, rising to a height of 88m (nearly 290ft), dwarfing the 59m (194ft) Liberty Hall, just across the the river, reports The Irish Times.

"The 17-storey tower would stand on a five-storey wedge-shaped podium, with the same facade treatment, which is designed to relate to the height of existing buildings on Tara Street. This would contain a 110-bedroom hotel, with an open restaurant/cafe terrace at the base of the office tower," it reports.

If the development goes ahead, it would also provide a new entrance to Tara Street station.

The architects said the scheme would provide 11,800sq m of floorspace for its three different elements, 'with the top-floor restaurant and bar having an unusually tall floor-to-ceiling height of 4.6m; this would be expressed as a “lantern” in the proposed architectural treatment'.

Late last year, Johnny Ronan applied for planning permission to press ahead with plans for a 141-bedroom hotel at Enniskerry, Co Wicklow.
