Permission has been granted for the construction of a 46-bedroom guest house in Dingle town centre.
Permission for the development includes a bar, restaurant, cultural centre, greenhouse and associated facilities – at Gortonora.
The development at ‘The Bridge House’ is located at the junction between Spa Road, the Mall and Sráid Eoin in the town centre at a premise once locally known as ‘Mossie Choc’s’.
The application – lodged in March 2015 – includes a new riverside walkway on Spa Road and the reinstatement of a pedestrian access at the junction with the bridge.
Planning has been granted subject to eleven conditions – including that all windows and doors looking out onto Sráid Eoin be of timber construction and that all signage be hand-painted of traditional design.
