Wetherspoon’s targeting more sites in Ireland
WETHERSPOON’S will continue to look for further sites in Ireland, having enjoyed what it describes as “great success” with its existing five pubs in the Republic of Ireland.
Speaking as the company begins development work on a new pub in Dublin, Wetherspoon’s chairman Tim Martin said he was “pleased” to be working on three new sites in the south.
“We have enjoyed great success with our existing five pubs in the Republic of Ireland and are pleased that we now have three new sites in development,” Mr Martin said.
“We will continue to look for other sites.”
The latest development in the heart of Dublin will see the UK pub chain invest €4m in a new pub on Lower Abbey Street, creating 75 jobs.
The pub, which will be called The Silver Penny, is due to open in May next year.
