200 jobs are on the way for Dublin.
Pub chain 'JD Wetherspoon' is spending €15 million developing a new pub and 98 bedroom hotel in the Camden Street area of the city.
It is set to open in early 2019 and is the company's biggest ever single investment in the European Union.
This morning it was confirmed that development work will begin on the project next February.
Commenting on the announcement, Wetherspoon chairman Tim Martin said: “We are looking forward to developing the site into a fantastic pub and hotel.
“It will be the biggest single investment undertaken by Wetherspoon and will result in our largest hotel alongside a superb pub.
The pub is set to be over two levels and will feature a beer garden. The hotel will have a large number of rooms with some catering for people with disabilities.
According to Hospitality Ireland, a number of historical aspects of the derelict buildings will be retained and restored, such as the circular stained glass window which was crafted by Earley & Company, while a chapel formerly owned by Little Sisters of Assumption will also be preserved and form part of the new venue.
