No Superpub for Merchant's Arch

Plans to turn the Merchant’s Arch Bar into a “superpub” have been rejected by An Bord Pleanála.
Thomas Doone had earlier this year sought permission from Dublin City Council to extend the pub overlooking the Ha’penny Bridge into four adjoining buildings along Merchant’s Arch Lane, the early 19th-century pedestrian entrance to Temple Bar.
Mr Doone had already been granted a Circuit Court order which ensured he would be granted a drinks licence for the development if it secured planning permission.
However, the council last May refused permission on the basis the development “would constitute a ‘superpub’” and would have a “detrimental impact on the historic fabric and character” of the existing pub and the local area.
 
Mr Doone appealed the decision to the board, contending that the council had “misapplied” the term superpub to his establishment.
