Dublin City Council has given the green light for a massive 230 bedroom hotel on Dean Street, near Fallon’s pub.


Appeals against the building of the five-story hotel were rejected last year and the council has now backed the plan.


Some of the biggest concerns raised included traffic control in the area.


Set down and pick up spots are expected to be used due to the lack of parking in the area.


The proposal includes a café, bar, restaurant, conference facilities, an event room, 23 car parking spaces and 32 bicycle spaces, plus two courtyards.

Local residents had issues with the proposal, including the head of estates and facilities at nearby BIMM Dublin, Bryan Pepper.


Pepper made a submission regarding the effect the building of the hotel would have on the college.

Pepper’s concerns included “noise levels…light…cracking”. He wrote: “we are an old building we are worried about the walls being damaged by piling or other works on the site beside.”


Fáilte Ireland and Dublin City Counci say they “have identified the Liberties as having potential as a cultural ad heritage tourism destination. The proposed development will strengthen the appeal of the area as a tourist destination.”


To keep in style with other buildings in the area, with the granting of permission on February 16th, the front façade of the hotel will include natural stone.
This is the second hotel that will be built in the area, along with a new high tech hotel on Mill Street.
