Revised Plan for Cobblestone Pub

Scaled back plans for a hotel over the Cobblestone pub in Dublin will ensure that the pub's important cultural offering will be maintained, according to architects for Marron Estates Ltd, C+W O'Brien.Cobblestone
The architects have told  An Bord Pleanála that instead of the original 114 bedroom nine-storey scheme put forward by Marron Estates to Dublin City Council, the company is now proposing a seven-storey scheme over the protected structure of the Cobblestone pub on Dublin’s King Street at Smithfield.
As part of the appeal to An Bord Pleanála against the comprehensive refusal by Dublin City Council, C+W O’Brien Architects is proposing ‘the retention of the entire Cobblestone pub over all floors at basement, ground and first and second floors".
The removal of the backroom of the Cobblestone pub was a controversial component of the original scheme and was also a specific ground of refusal by the council.
The council stated that the loss of the existing backroom area to the rear of the Cobblestone pub, which has developed as a space for teaching, rehearsal and performance for traditional music, would be contrary to development plan provisions in respect of culture in the city.
Now, Marron Estates is proposing to relocate the backroom "to a purpose built performing space contained within the retained historic yard to the rear of the site".
A decision on the appeal is due in April. Parties can make submissions to the appeals board on the appeal lodged.
