The first pictures have been released of what the famous Ormond Hotel will look like after its refurbishment.
The building, on the North Quays, is the site of famous scene of 'The Sirens' chapter of James Joyce's Ulysees.
The hotel opened in 1900, but has been derelict since it closed in 2006.

Kuala Lumpur-based Plato Capital bought the property in early 2012 and got approval for 120 rooms.
The group expects the development to cost about €25m.

It's thought that up to 250 people could be employed over the construction phase - and 90 staff when it's operational.
Construction is expected to be completed in early 2020.
It'll operate under the Ormond Hotel brand name.
