The new day spa and leisure centre would then have its own entrance, as well as being accessible from the hotel.

Castleknock Hotel and Country Club is a four-star hotel which currently consists of 144 bedrooms.

The additional 46 rooms planned as part of the £3.6m investment will comprise of 38 standard, 5 superior and 3 deluxe rooms.

David Kelly, chief executive of FBDPLL, said: “Our hotels have been performing ahead of projections, with Castleknock Hotel having made significant progress since the first green shoots of economic recovery emerged.

“We know that the demand for hotel rooms in the capital is high and growing, while the supply of new rooms has stagnated in recent years. We are delighted to be in a position whereby we can bring an additional 46 rooms to the market in a prime Dublin location to help meet this growing demand for increased hotel capacity.”
