Harry Crosbie has revealed a plan to turn his home into a hotel, after submitting a planning application to Dublin City Council .
Mr Crosbie intends to add two extra floors to the two-storey property on Hanover Quay in Dublin's docklands as part of the plan.
The four-star boutique hotel, called ''Number 9'', will have 20 bedrooms, each with a balcony overlooking the water, while the entire ground floor is set to become a 6,000sq ft bar. At the rear of the property, Mr Crosbie intends to build a small bar on the waterfront, for VIP guests who will be staying at the hotel. The hotel will be accessed from the gable wall, which faces the Bord Gais Energy theatre on Grand Canal Square.
It will be designed by architect Jonathan Walsh of RKD and is due to open next summer.
Mr Crosbie also intends to build a two-bedroom apartment above the hotel where he will live with his wife Rita.
Mr Crosbie has also submitted plans to build a new rock 'n' roll hotel at his Vicar Street site.
The submission includes plans for a membership club on the top floor with a 7,000 sq ft bar looking out over the city. The Vicar Street venue is also to get a makeover, with the main stage being moved to introduce an extra 500 seats.
