J.D. Wetherspoon is building a new hotel in Dublin worth £16m, the largest single investment the pub chain has ever made.

The venue, which will be called Keaven’s Port Hotel, will be housed in a string of old, derelict properties in Camden Street Upper and Camden Street Lower, and will fuse “restored Georgian architecture with contemporary design,” according to the drinks giant.

The two-storey, 92-room pub, which will also come with a courtyard beer garden, a circular stained-glass window crafted by Dublin-based church decorator Earley & Company, will open its doors in summer 2019 and create 300 jobs in the city.

The Keaven’s Port will also house contemporary artwork which gives a nod to an old boxing gym which was house in the Chapel, according to a statement.

Wetherspoon’s will break ground on the project on Tuesday 8 May.

Part of the terrace was also a convent of the Little Sisters of Assumption – from 1890 until the 1940s. A former chapel will also be kept and restored to make up part of the new venue.

Wetherspoon chairman Tim Martin said: “We are looking forward to developing the site into a fantastic pub and hotel.

“It will be the biggest single investment undertaken by Wetherspoon and will result in our largest hotel alongside a superb pub.

“Our pubs in the Republic of Ireland are thriving and we are confident that the pub and hotel will be a great asset to Dublin and act as a catalyst for other businesses to invest in the city.”
