Ikea will open second Irish Store in Carrickmines

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 caf√©. 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.
