Also the Kingsley Hotel at Victoria Cross that has witnessed an approval of 63 additional bedrooms are on the list.


Amongst the hotels that have applied for planning permission are the M (The Metropole) on Harley’s Street and Horgan’s Quay (HQ) on Railway Street on the Lower Glanmire Road.


Also, the first floating hotel of Ireland has received a go-ahead.


And a hostel at Parnell Place and a four-star hotel at the site of the former Government buildings on Sullivan’s Quay are in the pre-planning stages.
