Wetherspoons have confirmed the August opening date for their newest Dublin city pub and hotel – Keavan’s Port on Camden Street.

The €33 million hotel, developed on the site of a convent and a terrace of late-Georgian city dwellings, will open on Monday August 16.

The 89-bed development will include the conservation of a 19th century circular stained-glass window considered to be the work of John Earley who had a studio on the site.

The pub giant has also bought another office building in the heart of Dublin city centre.

They splashed out a cool €9 million for the building close to Temple Bar in Aston Quay.

The chain also aims to spend an extra €4 million developing the site into one of its famous pubs which is expected to have three floors and a large roof terrace.

And they are also to start development work at another site on The South Strand in Hanover Quay.

Founder and chairman Tim Martin, said: “We have enjoyed great success in the Republic of Ireland and are continually on the lookout for new sites.

“We are delighted to have purchased the site in Aston Quay. The investment highlights our commitment to Dublin.”

Other Wetherspoons pubs in Dublin include: The Silver Penny on Lower Abbey Street; The Three Tun Tavern in Carysfort Avenue, Blackrock; The Forty Foot in The Pavilion Centre, Marine Road, Dun Laoghaire; The Great Wood at Westend Shopping Park, Blanchardstown and The Old Borough in Main Street, Swords.
