Demesne Architects have had a strong involvement in the evolution of Maynooth as one of Ireland’s premier dining destinations. Demesne designed and achieved all statutory permissions for Picaderos Restaurant in Maynooth.

It was a difficult permission to achieve as the Maynooth Town Plan specifically precluded the change of use of retail units into restaurants. Demesne successfully appealed Kildare’s decision to refuse planning permission to An Bord Pleanala, citing both their high quality design for the restaurant and the need to inject life back to the main street.

Picaderos continues to trade as one of Maynooth’s most successful restaurants.
