Galway City Council has given the green light for a Wetherspoons pub in the city centre at the site of the former Carbon Nightclub.
JD Wetherspoon PLC intends to open a pub and restaurant by the name of The Three Red Sails at the Eglinton Street site.
The UK pub chain submitted plans in July 2022 for works including demolition and refurbishment works at ground floor level including the front elevation at Eglinton Street.
The plans also include an extension to first floor level to include a roof terrace, customer toilets and staff facilities.
Modifications will be made to the existing beer garden on the ground floor, and a second one will be added on the roof terrace upstairs.
The planning application came three years after the former nightclub was bought by Wetherspoons.
No food or drink shall be allowed in the beer garden area after 10pm in order to reduce noise disturbance.
Planning permission for the development has been granted by Galway City Council subject to 23 conditions.
Wetherspoon already runs seven pubs and two hotels in Ireland: the Three Tun Tavern (Blackrock), The Forty Foot (Dun Laoghaire), The Great Wood (Blanchardstown), The Linen Weaver (Cork), The Old Borough (Swords) including hotel, Keaven’s Port Hotel (Dublin), The Tullow Gate (Carlow) and The Silver Penny (Dublin).
