83-85 Patrick StreetnewP

Planning permission has recently been granted to amalgamate 83-85 Patrick Street, which sits between Golden Discs and the corner of Carey’s Lane. The original facade of all three buildings will be retained but significantly enhanced, along with a new granite and extensively glazed shop front onto Patrick Street, with return frontage onto Carey’s Lane.


This high status area of Cork City Centre was developed as an urban extension to the City between 1680 and 1750 when the city’s key streets were waterways and Paul Street and Oliver Plunkett Street provided the high streets to the developed islands. Today this area is the commercial heart of the city and main focus for retailing, a key focus for the evening economy, as well as containing offices and an expanding residential population.


The area has a strong tradition of collective voice through the Cork Business Association and sub-area traders groups. Plunkett Quarter Traders represent the area south of Saint Patrick’s Street.
