Pub operator Wetherspoon announced today it is set to open its new pub and hotel in Dublin on October 20. The company is investing more than 21 million euros developing the pub and 89 bedroom hotel, named Keavan’s Port, in Camden Street Upper and Lower.
Up to 200 full and part-time jobs will be created at the pub and hotel. The pub will feature two bars, one located on the lower ground floor and the other at ground floor level within the gazed atrium. There will also be two enclosed courtyards.
Speaking this week, Wetherspoon Chief Executive, John Hutson said, "We are looking forward to opening our new pub and hotel in Dublin. It is the company’s biggest single investment on a site and will also house its largest hotel. The project has gone back a few months as building work was put on hold due to Covid-19, however, we are delighted that building work is once again underway."
He added, "We believe the pub and hotel will be a great asset to Dublin and hopefully it will act as a catalyst for other businesses to invest in the city."
