The subject site is situated on approx. 0.97 acres (0.394 hectares) and comprises the former
Lamb Doyle’s pub and adjoining car park.

This site is a well-known landmark with the former Lamb Doyle’s pub marking a pivotal location at the junction of Blackglen Road and Woodside Road. There is extensive frontage to Blackglen Road (approx. 63.3m) and Woodside Road (approx. 101m).

The existing building is 820 sq. m. (8,826 sq. ft.) with the remainder of the site comprising a disused car park.

Situated at the bottom of the Dublin mountains, the site slopes downwards to the north providing rare, panoramic views over Dublin City.

Considering the more rural character of the neighbouring lands to the south (high amenity and rural amenity / agriculture), the proposed development aims to appropriately respond to the transitional and urban edge identity.

This is reinforced by the recent completion of two new detached houses (Ref. no. D11A/0362 & D11A/0352) to the northeastern boundary which ODDA (O’Donoghue & Associates Architects) have considered in its approach to the proposed scheme

Access to the site has significantly improved with the recent completion of the Blackglen / Harold’s Grange Road Improvement Scheme. These works have alleviated a prior lack of connectivity to the site which was highlighted as an issue in previous planning applications.

The upgrade works included a widening of Blackglen Road in conjunction with the addition of a network of cycling and pedestrian paths. This essential accessibility links the proposed scheme to the nearest neighbourhood centres and wider context.
