This high-profile city centre property is located directly opposite Central Plaza and Temple Bar. This is one of the busiest thoroughfares in Dublin city centre. It links Temple Bar to Grafton Street and the adjoining popular retail Streets (Dawson Street, South William Street, South Great George’s Street etc.) which are home to a host of bars, restaurants, shops and hotels.

No. 37 Dame Street has Full Planning Permission for a three-storey pub with three floors of offices overhead including a rooftop extension. RefABP 301743-18 (PA 4567/17).
This period property benefits from dual frontage onto Dame Street and Dame Lane. Dame Lane is a bustling pedestrian street that benefits from the spill over of customers from the adjoining busy hotels, bars and restaurants.
The property benefits from excellent passing footfall from a host of city centre bus stops on Dame Street and the LUAS station at Trinity College (300 meters walking distance). 37 Dame Street is approx. 260 meters walking distance from Grafton Street and approx. 300 meters walking
distance from O’Connell Street.
In addition to the pedestrianised streets of Dame Lane and Dame Court there are plans to create a new 350 metre pedestrian and cycle plaza in 2024 from College Green to the junction of Dame Street and South Great George’s Street, with buses, cars and taxis banned. There are plans afoot to create place making and external seating and event space on College Green, which should benefit all the adjoining hospitality properties.

According to Dublin Town footfall statistics from April 2023, there were over 1,402,785 visitors to Dame Court last year. With over 371,445 in 2023 and 27,997 on Saturday 3 April 2023. In most cases recent footfall statistics are nearly back to Pre-Covid 2019 levels (-3%).

No. 37 is located on the south side of Dame Street facing directly onto the College Green pedestrian and cycle plaza, directly opposite Central Plaza and less than 245 meters to the west of Trinity College. Central Plaza is an iconic landmark building that was designed by Architect Sam Stephenson and acts as a central hub and meeting point in Temple Bar and is home to WeWork, AmTrust and a host of food offerings including Bujo, Gino’s Gelato, las iGuanas, Krispy Kreme, and Carroll’s flagship Dublin store, plus a 360 degree rooftop restaurant.

The property is only a short walking distance from Grafton Street and Temple Bar and backs onto the pedestrianised streets of Dame Lane and Dame Court which are very popular as they provide a spillover area for the adjoining hospitality market. There are already several popular pubs on Dame Street and No. 37 Dame Street offers another pub/ restaurant venue that should benefit greatly from the busy hospitality trade. Some of the adjoining occupiers include Mulligan & Haines, Rezz Hotel, the Stags Head, the Voyager, the Bank Bar, Pichet, Four Dame Lane, The Mercantile and the new Hoxton Hotel (Central Hotel site) etc.

No. 37 Dame Street is a dual frontage five-storey over-basement period property, which backs onto Dame Lane. The property is a protected structure and benefits from a unique stone cut façade and entrance on the ground floor with red brickwork and Georgian style windows overhead. The property was formally the office of IMPAC and has excellent floor to ceiling height in Georgian proportion that provides bright and spacious space on lower floors. There is a balcony area with roof lights on the top floor with a modern extension on the upper floors and rear of the property which was built on in 1991.

This is a prime city centre location and the refurbished upper floor offices may suit a variety of office uses or even a serviced office provider given the central location, excellent public transport network and host of café, restaurant, and shopping facilities. The property is fully vacant and has a lift serving the building (except 4th floor) as well as two car parking spaces facing onto Dame Lane. There is a current planning permission which was granted in March 2019 to extend the rooftop and develop a pub/ restaurant over the ground floor, basement
floor and first floor (see below).

The property is zoned ‘Z5 City Centre’ under the Dublin City Development Plan 2016 to 2022 – To sustain life within the centre of the city through intensive mixed-use development.
Planning permission was granted on 20/03/2019 for a bar over the Ground floor, first floor and basement floor with 3 floors of office space overhead. Reference ABP 3017-19 (PA 4567/17).
