Tesco Ireland Opens New Citywest Store

Tesco Ireland has opened a new store in Citywest, Dublin, this week, bringing the total number of Tesco stores across Ireland to 176.

The new store is located in the new Quarter residential development and will offer customers a modern retail experience and a wide selection of quality fresh and Irish produce.

Customers will find local suppliers such as Mannings Bakery and Granby Ltd – the latter of which is famous for its Irish meats – on the shelves of the new Express store.

Tesco has also fitted the new premises with several energy-saving measures, including fridge doors, which will help reduce energy consumption.

‘A Big Moment’

The chief operating officer of Tesco Ireland, Geoff Byrne, welcomed the opening of the new store.


Byrne said, “We are delighted to open the doors on this new store in Citywest, in south-west Dublin.

“This store is part of our ongoing investment in stores in urban centres across Dublin and the rest of the country.

“We always receive such a warm welcome from the communities in which we are now based, and we are committed to ensuring that our new stores play a big part in these local communities in the future.”

Citywest’s store manager, Stephen McGrane, said at the opening, “This is a big moment for our small but mighty team of ten colleagues.

“We are looking forward to welcoming our new customers, and we cannot wait to actively engage with the community.


“We are especially proud to meet our neighbours in St Thomas’ senior and junior schools in Tallaght, who are participating our Stronger Starts schools programme when they return in September.

“Through the Community Fund, we are always keen to be able to support local groups and projects over the coming months.”

Community Fund

To date, Tesco’s Community Fund has helped support thousands of organisations across the country, from GAA clubs to children’s charities.

In its first campaign, the Citywest store will support the locality with donations to three local causes: St Mary’s GAA, the Connect 4 Project, and Scoil Aoife Community National School, Citywest.

Through the food surplus redistribution programme, FoodCloud partners and OLIO Food Waste Heroes will be on hand to ensure that no good food goes to waste.


The Citywest team will also join Tesco’s continued efforts to support its charity partner, the Children’s Health Foundation, which supports all sick children in CHI at the Crumlin, Temple Street and Tallaght hospitals.
