Planning Application lodged by Croke Park for new Hotel on Clonliffe College lands.

Last week, a formal planning application was lodged with the Planning Department of Dublin City Council by Pairc an Chrocaigh Cuideachta Fáil Theorainn Rathaiochta for the construction of a hotel on part of the former Clonliffe College lands.

I know that, for many months, householders across the Clonliffe Road and Ballybough area, have been eager to establish the type and scale of development on these lands. I’ll update you further on what is envisaged for the rest of the site which will be developed in partnership between the GAA and Hines.

Therefore, I have summarised the key points of the planning application, when it was lodged and how you can have your say on the plans prior to any determination being made by the Planning Department.


Lands off Clonliffe Road (formerly part of the Holy Cross College Lands), Dublin 3.


  • Construction of a Part 2xStorey, Part 7xStorey hotel building.
  • 200x Bedrooms over floors, 1 – 6.
  • 38x Car-parking spaces.
  • 28x Bicycle spaces.
  • New vehicular and pedestrian entrance from within Clonliffe college.
  • Demolition of existing boundary, repositioning of the Gate Piers and widening of the entrance on Clonliffe Road to facilitate two-way traffic.
  • Construction and replacement of plinth boundary wall with railings along Clonliffe Road.
