Wetherspoon complete development of Camden Street hotel

by Dublin Gazette

Wetherspoon has announced that they have completed the development of their new pub and hotel on Camden Street.

The company invested €27.4 million into developing the site on Camden Street Upper and Lower, after purchasing the property for €6m – the single largest investment made by Wetherspoon in its 41-year history.

In total, there will be 200 full and part-time staff will be employed at the pub and 89-bedroom hotel, which has been named Keavan’s Port.

Wetherspoon’s chief executive, John Hutson, said: “We are delighted to have completed the development of Keavan’s Port.

“We believe that the pub and hotel will be a great asset to Dublin and will hopefully act as a catalyst for other businesses to invest in the city.”

Currently, there is no official opening date for the pub and hotel, however subject to a licence being granted, the company is aiming to open the pub on January 15 2021.

The pub will be managed by Fillip Mordak, who has worked for Wetherspoon since 2007 and has previously managed The Forty Foot in Dun Laoghaire and The Silver Penny in Dublin.

A series of eight Georgian townhouses – seven of which are protected structures – a chapel and a modern extension, featuring a 12-metre-high glazed atrium, were all developed as part of the project.

The pub offers 9,000 square foot of space over two floors plus a 3,800 square foot garden across two enclosed courtyards.

The 89 bedrooms will all feature an en suite bathroom, and there will also be accessible bedrooms designed for guests with disabilities.
