Fallon & Byrne to open branch in Swan Rathmines

The Swan shopping centre in Rathmines is to get a major boost with the decision by Dublin’s fine food emporium Fallon & Byrne to open a new flagship food hall, delicatessen and casual eatery in the D6 centre.

The new 929 sq.m (10,000 sq.ft) facility will trade alongside anchor tenants Dunnes Stores, Omniplex Rathmines and 15 new traders since the centre was refurbished and upgraded at a cost of €2m.

The owners claim to have re-positioned the Swan centre as “the most dominant shopping and leisure destination in the Dublin 4 and 6 areas”.

Outdoor terrace

Fallon and Byrne’s new outlet will be based in a south-facing contemporary extension complete with an outdoor terrace with ample seating offering the prospect of early-evening sunshine. The stylishly designed extension on Castlewood Avenue will bring a casual dining offering to the area together with a gourmet food hall carrying the best of both Irish and international artisan product brands.

Since the brand’s inception in 2006 Fallon & Byrne has become one of Dublin’s most successful food destinations, delivering a New York-style food emporium, restaurant and wine cellar from its premises in Exchequer Street.

Fiona McHugh, managing director of Fallon & Byrne, said they loved the plans to create an elegant, contemporary extension to the Castlewood Road side of the centre and “very much look forward to creating a beautiful food hall to match”. Paul Anderson, managing director of Sawbridge, owners of the Swan, said the centre was now almost fully let and the addition of Fallon & Byrne as their third anchor tenant firmly placed them as the primary retail destination within Dublin 6”.
