UK PUB CHAIN JD Wetherspoon has confirmed that it will open a pub in Dun Laoghaire, its second outlet in Dublin.

The company said it has now completed the purchase of the disused 40 Foot pub on the town’s Marine Road.

Wetherspoon’s first pub in the Republic of Ireland, the Three Tun Tavern in Blackrock, opened its doors to the public for the first time today.

Its regional manager for Ireland, Alistair Broome, said:

We are delighted to have purchased the former pub in Dun Laoghaire. We are looking forward to redeveloping the site and creating new jobs in the area.

Occupying a prominent site on the waterfront side of the Pavilion Centre, the 40 Foot was a familiar landmark in the town before closing down more than a year ago.

Wetherspoon’s has also bought the site of the former Newport Café in Cork city centre.
