DIT’s Cathal Brugha Street Building Goes up for Sale

The iconic building is currently home to the DIT Schools of Hospitality Management & Tourism; Culinary Arts and Food Technology; and Environmental Health & Food Science.   It is the intention of DIT to enter into a short-term lease with the purchaser(s) until Autumn 2018 or 2019 when the students and staff will move to the the newly constructed Central Quad on the Grangegorman campus.


DIT Cathal Brugha Street, which celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2016, has had many notable graduates over the years who have excelled in their own fields, from Darina Allen, Kevin Thornton and Kevin Dundon, to Francis Brennan of the Park Hotel in Kenmare.


Speaking about this vital step in the Grangegorman project CEO of the Grangegorman Development Agency, Michael Hand said “The sale of this landmark property will enable GDA to continue the programme of amalgamating the multiples sites currently in use by DIT throughout the city.  It will be influential in the delivery of a first rate third level educational campus and will also deliver on the regeneration of the north inner city area.”


President of DIT, Professor Brian Norton, said “The development of the new DIT campus at Grangegorman is very significant not only for Dublin Institute of Technology but also for Dublin city.   We currently have 1000 students on campus, and in two years that number will grow to 10,000.  The Schools of Culinary Arts and Food Technology; Hospitality Management and Tourism; and Environmental Health and Food Science will be among those moving to purpose-built facilities designed to create an excellent learning environment.”
