UPDATE: An Application To Retain The Starbucks In Howth Has Been Rejected
It doesn't look like they'll be around much longer
Back in September we learned that Fingal County Council had served notice on Starbucks on Harbour Road, Howth, to shut its doors for good – giving the cafe four weeks to close.
As it turned out, the owners hadn't gotten planning permission to change the use of their property from a bike shop into a Starbucks.
The company that owns the Starbucks, Faynon, then made an application to the council to retain the Howth coffee shop on September 27, weeks after it had been given a closure deadline.
The council have now rejected this retention application on the basis that it is invalid.
