Lidl has started construction work to develop a brand new modern ‘concept’ supermarket at Kilcarbery in Clondalkin, Dublin, bringing the first major retail offering to the area when it opens later this year.

Planning permission for the new store was approved by South Dublin County Council in December 2023 and will see the retailer expand its Dublin store network to 53 when completed.

State-of-the-art ‘concept’

Located within the new Kilcarbery Grange development in Clondalkin, Lidl’s newest state-of-the-art ‘concept’ store will create 30 retail jobs in the area, adding to its 6,000 strong workforce throughout Ireland. Up to 120 temporary jobs will also be supported during the development phase which got underway this week with contractors Tinnelly Construction breaking ground to develop the 2,100 sqm retail unit.

Built to exacting standards, the new Lidl store at Kilcarbery will reflect the retailer’s established ‘concept’ design, which prioritises sustainability and energy efficiency. A modern fit-out will provide high-quality shopping experience throughout its 1,420 sqm sales floor, with 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 including 18 EV charging points.

Vincent Cronolly, regional property director, Lidl Ireland, said: “I’m pleased to confirm that construction is now underway 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 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. 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.”
