The Swedish retail giant Ikea will open a second Irish store in Carrickmines, South Dublin. The second Irish Ikea store will be a scaled down version of the Ballymun unit. The Park, a shopping and business park just off exit 15 on the m50 will offer Ikea a 15,000 sq ft premise and also see Ikea introduce their first order and collect point in Ireland.

Ikea have agreed a lease with property group Iput, believed to be for ten years. The store will also include a café. The smaller sizing that Ikea had previously revealed they were gearing towards will allow customers to collect orders made online. Niall Ringrose, Head of Property Management at Iput said the deal would significantly enhance the “already high-quality” retail offering at The Park.
