Plans to revamp the former Moore’s Hotel in Cork city have been hit with a delay.

The proposal which was approved by Cork City Council in recent weeks has been appealed to An Bord Pleanála

Quakeside Limited had been granted approval to demolish a number of existing buildings and to conserve and restore three protected structures on Morrison’s Quay to accommodate three new office buildings.

The plan also included the construction of a four- to six-storey mixed-use office and hotel development, containing some 183 bedrooms. It had been previously reported this would be operated by the Premier Inn brand.

However, the development has been appealed and, as such, will be reviewed by An Bord Pleanála, with a decision not due until mid-September.
