PUB CHAIN JD Wetherspoon’s looks set to be expanding its empire in Ireland, having received conditional approval to open a premises in Waterford City.

The pub giant submitted a planning application to Waterford City and County Council to develop a premises at two adjoining buildings situated on 17-18 Broad Street and 7-9 Arundel Square, Waterford, and received conditional approval to follow through with the development.

The application mentions plans of amalgamating the buildings and building a new “customer garden area” on the first floor.

In a statement to DailyEdge.ie, Wetherspoon’s confirmed their intentions to open a pub in Waterford City, but noted that “the site still needs a licence”.

Likewise, they could not confirm when we can expect the pub to be open.

JD Wetherspoon’s, which is renowned for its low-cost alcohol prices, currently operates five branches in the Republic of Ireland – four in Dublin and one in Cork.

In addition to the proposed pub in Waterford City, there are currently plans afoot to open a branch on Dublin’s Camden Street.
