House Hotel gets approval to replace restaurant with bedrooms

The House Hotel in Galway City Centre has been granted planning approval to remove its restaurant and bar to make space for more guest rooms.

The plans submitted to the city council involve changing the use of the ground floor restaurant and bar to seven new bedrooms and one reading/meeting room.

Ranchwell Ltd also intends to add more dining space in the hotel lobby, along with an outdoor seating space in the existing yard

“The addition of seating to the existing yard to the south east will also enhance the reception area and create a secure outdoor seating space and garden area for guests,” the application states.

The addition of the new reading room opening out onto on the north east side will “bring activity to both the elevation and the street” as well as “allow a visual connection from the pedestrian footpath through to corridor”.

The House Hotel is a Protected Structure at Spanish Parade, which is also located within the City Core Architectural Conservation Area.

Galway City Council granted planning permission for the renovations with eleven conditions attached.
