Andrew’s Lane Theatre could turn into a ‘tech-savvy, pod-like’ hotel


Planning permission has been granted for a 155-bedroom hotel on the site of Andrew Lane's Theatre on Dame Street.

The application was made by Appalachian Property Holdings and the total investment into the land will be about €21m.

The bedrooms in the hotel will be 'pod-like', which have become popular in places like New York and Japan.

“This is reflected throughout the ‘limited service’ hotel with sophisticated technology assisting the guests from self-service check-in to compact sophisticated bedrooms, which provide guests with the ability to customise their own environment," the document added.
