THE operator of Ashford Castle has secured planning permission for a 'boutique' five-star, 60-bedroom hotel in Dublin.

Red Carnation Hotels (UK) has secured planning permission for the conversion and extension of a former Jesuit university students' residence, Hatch Hall, which is located between Earlsfort Terrace and Leeson Street.

Dublin City Council has given the project the go-ahead after its planner found that the proposal "will upgrade one of the most prominent locations in the city".

The hotel is to include two bars and a restaurant in the former chapel building.

The council heard that while Dublin has a strong "pipeline" of hotels, only 3pc are classified as being in the five-star category.

Hatch Hall is a protected structure and a planning consultant for Red Carnation said the use as a five-star hotel "would ensure that the building is restored and conserved, protecting it into the future with a viable use".

Red Carnation declined to comment on a timeline for the development.
