THE former BP O’Reilly & Co Solicitors premises in Tallaght Village has recently been put on the rental market with planning permission for a restaurant/cafe.

As previously reported in The Echo, Mark Fitzgerald, co-founder and chairman of Sherry FitzGerald estate agents, lodged a planning application with South Dublin County Council in November 2019, seeking permission for the change of use of the premises.

In his application, Mr Fitzgerald outlined plans for internal alterations to the existing office at first floor level and a change of use of the two existing ground floor retail units at the rear of the property, to be amalgamated into a single licensed restaurant premises.

External alterations include new restaurant and office signage and shop frontage to the rear of the premises, and three restaurant entrances – one at Old Bawn Road and two at Courthouse Square, and the use of the external paved area onto Courthouse Square as a restaurant seating area.

South Dublin County Council granted permission for the plans last July.

The premises, also known as Coric House, was put on the rental market this week, however the cost of renting the premises is only available on application.

The property has been brought to the rental market by McCormick Estate Agents, who also have a separate listing for the first floor of Coric House, which is for office use, for rent for €50,000 a year.

In the listing on Daft.ie’s commercial property for rent section, the ground floor of Coric House is described as a retail unit with frontage to both Old Bawn Road and Courthouse Square, located in the centre of Tallaght Village “close to all the amenities”.

It’s also noted in the listing that “a number of office users are located close by”, that there are “many housing schemes within a 20 minute walk of the premises”, and that planning has been applied for a restaurant/coffee shop.
