The three-storey pop-up is Folkster’s largest venture and will include:

  • A dedicated Christmas and gift floor
  • The Folkster Gown Room with bridesmaid collection
  • Self-care and homeware collections
  • Their latest party and daywear collections
  • A street-style vintage collection
  • Fitting rooms with a spacious lounge area
  • Personal stylist for the ultimate VIP experience
  • Toys, books and gift boxes for little ones

Ciara Connolly, Head of Leasing, Hammerson Ireland, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Folkster back to Dundrum Town Centre. This premium Irish brand is a real draw for consumers, complementing the centre’s existing high-end fashion offering. We believe Folkster’s winter fashion, homeware, gifts, and toys will showcase the very best of home-grown design.”

Blanaid Hennessy, owner of Folkster, said: “We are thrilled to be returning to Dundrum Town Centre for our Christmas superstore. We feel fortunate and excited to be creating a magical store for our customers, filled to the brim with Folkster’s Winter fashion, home, gifts, and toys.”

With over 120 stores and 45 restaurants, Dundrum Town Centre is Ireland’s premier retail and leisure destination providing a mix of convenience and fashion retail, food and beverage, leisure and fitness facilities.  In 2021, leading luxury retailer Brown Thomas will be opening a new flagship store in Dundrum Town Centre.
