Go-ahead given for 200-bedroom hotel near Croke Park

A 200-bedroom hotel has been given the go-ahead by Bord Pleanála near Croke Park in Dublin. The hotel, which will be located on the grounds of Clonliffe College, received strong opposition from two objectors ‘Kate O’Hea’ and ‘Margaret Gaughran’ along with local residents. Despite objections, plans for the seven-storey hotel are to proceed.

The hotel will be operated by Dalata under the Maldron brand.

The 31.8-acre Clonliffe College, where the hotel will be built, was purchased by the GAA for €95 million with 19 acres being sold to property firm Hines for housing.

Board inspector Paul Caprani stated that the top floor may be removed from the approved plan due to concerns regarding the hotel’s size.

Stating that the scheme would not seriously injure the amenities of the area, the board in its formal order did not accept the size reduction and that the seven-storey scheme is to proceed.
