Harry Crosbie's luxury Hanover Quay hotel plan refused permission over waterfront access
Dublin City Council has refused planning permission to businessman, Harry Crosbie for a luxury boutique hotel for Hanover Quay in the city over a row concerning the public gaining free access to the waterfront at his planned hotel. Mr Crosbie was planning to convert his own home at 9 Hanover Quay on Grand Canal Dock into a four-star 19 bedroom hotel with guest bars and dining areas along the floor-length windows on the waterfront. The hotel - which faced local opposition - was to complement the planned U2 visitor centre for the adjacent site and that project received planning permission last week. However, the city council has turned down planning permission after Mr Crosbie refused to countenance the public having free access to the waterfront at the planned hotel.
