Three-storey apart-hotel planned for Rathcoole

A PLANNING permission application has been submitted for a three-storey apart-hotel development containing 69 bedrooms and two three bedroom family suites with a reception, a restaurant or coffee shop, and bar, 15 retail units and four market stalls on the site of The Glebe House in Rathcoole.

The house is a former rectory which has been previously fire damaged, causing the original interior features to be destroyed.

The application, which has been submitted by LBJ Properties Ltd, outlines plans to demolish a number of ancillary sheds and outhouses that are not part of the original historical fabric of The Glebe House.

The proposed structures for demolition include two outhouses, a single storey carwash building, a corner shop unit on Eaton Drive, a 480 sq m retail unit, a 260 sq m metal shed, a 39 sq m outhouse and the demolition of six retail units with a total area of 591 sq m, including colonnade.

It is also proposed that a number of conservation works will be carried out on The Glebe House, including extensive stabilisation works, the reinstatement of a Blue Bangor slate roof with red ridge detail and bell detail to the edge of the roof, the closing up of 20th century openings and the reinstatement of sash windows and a hardwood door to the Main Street south elevation, and two new double-glazed timber doors to the west wing in the existing openings.

The plans also include the construction of a single-storey ground floor extension, and two-storey zinc clad wings with central single-storey extension with flat roof to the rear of the north elevation of Glebe House, which is the original front entrance.

The plans also outline the construction of four market stands, an underground carpark with an access ramp from Eaton Drive, a ten-metre wide landscaped river fern garden to act as a flood compensatory zone, and two three-storey hotel wings, with one wing facing towards Tay Lane and the other wing on Eaton Drive with retail units on the ground floor.

The closing date for third party submissions is March 21, which will be followed by

South Dublin County Council’s decision on April 11.
