New Starbucks Ireland Store!

25 May

So, a new Starbucks Store is coming to Ireland! Since Starbucks closed five outlets towards the end of 2009 there has been no new stores in the country. This is about to change, as of today a new store is coming to Dublin. Located on Westmoreland Street in the center of Dublin city in a very old ESB (Irish electricity company) building that has been closed for nearly nine years now. The space is about 371sq m (4,000sq ft) with a full glass exterior. This store in right in the center of Dublin city and will more than likely be one of the busiest stores in the country, taking the title from College Green (which I reviewed Here) right around the corner. I’m very excited about this store and the possibilities that lie ahead – will it have the new logo, will it be the first LEED store in Ireland, will it have the ‘new’ look Starbucks has been introducing in all of its recent store opening? To read more about the article online check out the Irish Times website Here. The opening date has not yet been released but I’ll be there when the store opens and will review it in full on the blog, I hope you come back and check out how it goes.

Here is an image of the outside of the building published in the IT article. This will really be a beautiful store when it’s done!

    Was in it today, disappointed that it had no wifi and didn’t take the starbucks card. Whats the point? I left for another shop with wifi. Is this a franchise? Also do you know of any plans to open one North of the Liffey?
