Lidl Ireland Breaks Ground On New Clondalkin Store

Lidl Ireland has started construction on a new, modern ‘concept’ store at Kilcarbery, in Clondalkin, Dublin.

The supermarket will be the first major retail offering in the area when it opens later this year.

South Dublin County Council approved planning permission for the discount retailer’s 53rd Irish store in December 2023.

Located within the new Kilcarbery Grange development in Clondalkin, Lidl’s new, state-of-the-art store will create 30 retail jobs for the area.

Construction of the store – which got under way this week, with contractors Tinnelly Construction breaking ground to develop the 2,100-square-metre unit – will also support 120 temporary jobs.

Built to exacting standards, the new store will reflect the retailer’s established ‘concept’ design, which prioritises sustainability and energy efficiency.

A modern fit-out will provide a high-quality shopping experience throughout its 1,420-square-metre sales floor.

It will also include wide aisles, an in-store bakery, longer till points, enhanced restrooms, and employee facilities.

A newly landscaped customer car park will provide more than 82 spaces for shoppers, including 18 EV-charging points.

‘Investment Into The Community’

Commenting on the new store, the regional property director at Lidl Ireland, Vincent Cronolly, said, “I am pleased to confirm that construction is now under way for a brand-new Lidl store in Kilcarbery, Clondalkin.

“This is a strategically important site for us and will serve the growing population in this area.

“Many of the new housing developments in recent years, such as Kilcarbery Grange, are as a direct result of [the] council’s investment into the area as part of the Rebuilding Ireland programme.

“With a thriving community, the time is right for us to establish a modern new store in the locality.

“This will provide further investment into the community, facilitate employment, and attract further inward investment from other retailers.”

Cronolly concluded, “This is a highly anticipated project, and I look forward to welcoming residents to enjoy an unrivalled shopping experience with Ireland’s best-value supermarket.”
