Wetherspoon acquires Blanchardstown club

UK pub operator JD Wetherspoon has purchased a fourth outlet, The Light Nightclub, a former nightclub in Westend Shopping Park, Blanchardstown, County Dublin and is to invest more than €3 million developing the site.

Wetherspoon has planning and licensing permission to develop the former nightclub into a pub but still requires planning permission in order to undertake development work in the garden.

The company opened its first RoI pub, the Three Tun Tavern, in Blackrock, County Dublin, in July and will be opening its second pub in Dun Laoghaire on December 16th.

It has also acquired a site in Swords. At present the Blanchardstown and Swords sites do not have on-site or opening dates.
