Ireland: Plans for the site of the Embankment pub on Dublin's Blessington Road include three aparthotel buildings and a 129-room hotel.

Developer Mardivale has lodged plans with South Dublin County Council to demolish the pub, which has been closed for 20 years, and replace it with the new project.

The Embankment was a fabled music venue where the likes of The Dubliners and Luke Kelly performed. Local legend has it that Bob Dylan once went to the pub and was transfixed by a performance by The Dubliners.

The proposed three-storey hotel is to contain 129 bedrooms, while there are to be three three-storey aparthotel buildings comprising 15 units each, made up of studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom units.

Provision of a parking area for 120 cars and 30 bicycles, extensive tree planting throughout the site, a sub-station together with all associated site works, boundary treatments and landscaping, is included in the plans. A decision on the application is due from the council by November 5.
