Permission Being Sought To Extensively Reconfigure Dublin’s Central Hotel

Exchequer Developments Limited has applied for planning permission to expand Dublin’s Central Hotel into a 6,554 square metre, 125-bedroom venue.

The proposed expansion would involve extensively reconfiguring the Central Hotel along with associated premises at numbers 11 to 16 on the capital’s South Great George’s Street, and partial sundry demolition work.

Possible Loss Of The Globe, Rí-Rá And The Exchequer

If approved, the project would result in the closure of Dublin’s Globe bar, Rí-Rá nightclub and Exchequer venue, with part of The Globe and Rí-Rá becoming retail space, and The Exchequer becoming part of the revamped hotel’s reception.

The Irish Times quotes Labour Party councillor Darragh Moriarty as saying in relation to the possibility of The Globe, Rí-Rá and The Exchequer being lost, “The Globe and Rí-Rá are institutions and so many people have good memories of nights out there. They really are among the staples of Dublin nightlife and they’ll be sadly missed. This is really disappointing.”
