Carbon Nightclub in Eglinton Street is set to become the newest Wetherspoons in the Republic of Ireland after the English pub company confirmed it will purchase the popular venue.
The purchase is set to complete in August and JD Wetherspoon will apply for planning permission and a variation to the licenced premises.
The new pub plans propose a 4,000 sq ft pub with a 1,900 sq ft first floor beer garden.
The company, based in England, has seven pubs in the Republic.
Wetherspoon’s general manager for Ireland, Alistair Broome said: “We have enjoyed great success with our existing pubs in the Republic of Ireland and look forward to opening in Galway.”
Wetherspoon already runs seven pubs and one hotel 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, The Tullow Gate (Carlow) and The Silver Penny (Dublin).
Development for a pub and 89-bedroom hotel, Keavan’s Port Hotel, in Camden Street Upper/Lower, Dublin, is also underway.
Wetherspoon will also develop a site in Waterford.
