The news comes after Panti Bliss shared a photo of the Etsy building painted with a homophobic slur, with an arrow pointing towards nearby Panti Bar.
The graffiti was removed this afternoon.
Dublin City Council says it received a complaint this morning, and that in accordance with its policy, intended to remove the offensive material within 24 hours.
However the council says Dublin Town painted over it today, and DCC will return to complete the work tomorrow when the paint is dry.
