Pub chain Wetherspoons has been granted permission to open a hotel and bar complex on Camden Street, despite initial reservations from Dublin City Council.

The new premises, which will be built in the old homeless hostel on Camden St, will contain 90-hotel rooms, a bar and restaurant.

However the chain, which operate more than 900 pubs in Britain and Northern Ireland and five in Ireland, are subject to twenty conditions.

These include a ban on amplified music which could be heard from the street, a ban on the use of projecting signs, and a number of changes to the internal amalgamation of the old houses.

Wetherspoons had also planned to open another pub on Lower Abbey Street after acquiring two adjoining buildings in early 2015, the former Permanent TSB bank and a former Baptist chapel alongside it.
