The wait is over… last weekend saw the highly anticipated NEW Donnybrook Fair Store & Restaurant open its doors to hundreds of shoppers at Dundrum Town Centre just in time for the festive season. The new store will bring the number of Donnybrook Fair stores to six.

There was fun and entertainment outside the store, situated at Dundrum Town Centre’s Pembroke Square, as Late Late Toy Show star Úna Walsh performed A Million Dreams on the harp among other Christmas songs. The 14-year-old from Wexford was a huge hit with shoppers who recognised her from the show and wanted their picture taken with her! Popular singing trio The Bugle Babes were also on hand to get shoppers in the festive mood along with Santa treating the first 100 customers to freshly baked Donnybrook Fair cookies and hot chocolate.

The first shoppers through the doors got to check out the new 9,688sq ft store which is beautifully designed over two floors with a food market on the ground floor, featuring everything you would expect from Donnybrook Fair, including butcher, cheese, juice and pizza counters along with premium wine and coffee areas. Orders were also being taken for Donnybrook Fair’s “Christmas in a Box” which includes enough food for eight people for Christmas Day (priced €265). In the new year Donnybrook Fair fans can sign-up to experience a range of pop-up culinary experiences from cookery classes, wine tastings and a private dining area to freshly cooked pizzas and street food to go.

Customers over the weekend enjoyed brunch, lunch and dinner at the store’s LOFT restaurant on the top floor – the perfect place for casual dining offering fresh, locally sourced food and an extensive drinks menu in a relaxed setting. LOFT will host an array of cocktail, cooking and wine classes in the coming months.

Speaking at the new store, Des O’Mahony said: “We are thrilled to be able to open the store just in time for Christmas! This year Donnybrook Fair celebrates its 20th anniversary, so it’s been extra special with this spectacular new store. It is very different to our existing stores and offers a real food adventure for people with our various culinary counters. I would like to thank all the staff and the shoppers who have been so gracious with their well wishes over the weekend!”

Donnybrook Fair is located on Pembroke Square and is now open daily Monday to Saturday – 7.30am – 8pm, Sundays/Bank Holidays: 9am – 8pm. LOFT restaurant opening hours are Monday to Wednesday – 8am – 6pm, Thursday to Saturday: 8am – 9:30pm.

Donnybrook Fair is ensuring all Covid procedures are followed in-store and has been working in close partnership with the Dundrum Town Centre to ensure a queue management system outside the store and has put in place signage and capacity limits within the store to ensure customers are safely distanced from one another.
