12 years after its final guests checked-out, work has finally begun on redeveloping the old Ormond Hotel.

The building, which has sat idle on Ormond Quay since 2006, will keep its name when it grows to five storeys with 121 bedrooms.

The new owners of the hotel, which featured in James Joyce’s Ulysses, have been told to embed text from the book into the floor and courtyard.

While none of the original structure will be left, An Bord Pleanala said the new development must "provide some recognition and acknowledgement of the Joycean theme".

The building was bought from developer Bernard McNamara by the owner of Queens Park Rangers football club, Tony Fernandes.

He first applied for permission to redevelop the hotel three years ago.
