CONSTRUCTION SITE ON ORMOND QUAY – NEW ORMOND HOTEL
The images from this session are a bit noisy as i photographed from the other side of the river and it was getting dark at the time.
A €25 million redevelopment of the Ormond Hotel on Ormond Quay is expected to complete by Match or April of 2020.
The Ormond Hotel was located on Dublin’s historic Georgian quays, which were laid out by the Duke of Ormond in the late 17th century. The Ormond Hotel, which began operating from the site in 1889, was building of special cultural significance on account of it being the fictional location for the Sirens episode of James Joyce’s magnum opus, Ulysses, which chronicles the passage of Leopold Bloom through Dublin during an ordinary day, 16 June 1904.
