The plans, submitted by The Mercantile Group, owner of some of the capital’s most iconic pubs such as Café en Seine, NoLita, Opium, Whelehan’s and The George, will increase the number of bedrooms from its present 28 to 109.

Three years ago the Group purchased Dame House for €7.5 million but it’s understood that plans for the extension were stalled by Dublin personal injury solicitor and Dame House tenant John Synnott after he appealed to An Bord Pleanála the City Council’s decision to grant planning permission.
