Pub chain Wetherspoon has revealed plans to create a new hotel and pub in Dublin, investing €15m in what will be its biggest commitment to a single project yet.
The pub giant, which currently runs over 40 pubs with rooms across the UK, will begin transforming a site at Camden Street in the city next February, with an aim to be completed in early 2019.
The project will be Wetherspoon’s biggest hotel to date, with a total of 98 bedrooms being created at the property.

The site is currently a row of derelict properties, which dates back to the 17th century.
After its transformation, the pub will be set across two levels and feature a beer garden.
Company chairman Tim Martin said: “We are looking forward to developing the site into a fantastic pub and hotel.
“It will be the biggest single investment undertaken by Wetherspoon and will result in our largest hotel alongside a superb pub.”
He added: “Our pubs in the Republic of Ireland are thriving and we are confident that the pub and hotel will be a great asset to Dublin and act as a catalyst for other businesses to invest in the city.”
