“Making Christmas for Everyone” Unveiling of World Class Shopping Destination Dunnes Stores Jetland, Limerick Friday 6th – Sunday 8th December 2019

In  the 1960s “The Jetland Ballroom” on the Ennis Road was THE place to meet – one of Ireland’s biggest ballrooms where top international acts such as Johnny Cash and Roy Orbeson took to the stage, as well as home grown talent like Brendan Boyer and Limerick’s own Shaun O’Dowd. 


Now people have a brand new reason to head to “The Jetland”, with the unveiling of the all new Dunnes Stores Jetland, offering an exciting and innovative shopping experience in collaboration with some of the leading Irish names in food, fashion and homeware, all under one roof and all delivering on the Dunnes Stores promise of better value.


This new state-of-the-art store will be celebrating its official unveiling from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th December with a weekend full of festive fashion, food, lots of giveaways and fun for all the family.


John Kennedy, Dunnes Stores Jetland Store Manager stated “Just like The Jetland Ballroom featured all of the top names from the era, Dunnes Stores Jetland will feature the very best names in fashion, food and homeware.  It really will offer shoppers in Limerick something very special and trusted, while remaining true to our promise of better value, which has been instilled in all of us since Dunnes Stores was established in the 1940s.”


John, who is in the midst of planning the upcoming weekend, stated “We wanted to organise a special weekend to say thank you to our customers and our hard working team for their patience and support as we went through our ‘makeover’.  We couldn’t have done it without them, and they are as proud of our beautiful new store as we are.”


At the unveiling weekend there will be opportunities to meet some of Ireland’s best fashion, beauty and home designers, including Paul Costelloe, whose father was from Limerick; Carolyn Donnelly; Brendan Courtney; Sonya Lennon; Leigh Tucker; Diarmuid Gavin; Derrick Carberry; and Limerick’s own Celia Holman Lee, will be coordinating fashion shows throughout the weekend.  There will also be a wide range of activities in the new state-of-the-art Food Hall, where some of Ireland’s leading food producers will be on hand to meet and greet and to invite shoppers to sample some of their signature and award winning products including Ireland’s favourite chef, Neven Maguire, who will be there to celebrate the arrival of his exclusive Cookware Collection with a very special Cookery Demo on Friday 6th December at 6pm. On Sunday we will have another Cookery Demo, with Aileen Cox Blundell of Baby Led Feeding fame.


John added,“It’s been a very special time for us and for Dunnes Stores as a whole. We are officially Ireland’s number one Food Retailer, and recently we have been awarded Irish Retailer of the Year. We brought home numerous national and international awards in 2019, and this year also marks the 75th anniversary of the business, and now with our beautiful new look store in Jetland, we’re bringing the celebrations to Limerick in a big way!”

John and his team are also organising lots of kid friendly activities and there will be lots and lots of giveaways throughout the weekend.


Visitors to Dunnes Stores Jetland will experience a world class Food Hall, a unique collaboration focusing on provenance and quality with some of Ireland’s leading Irish artisan producers, all under one roof including stand alone shops from Sheridan’s Cheesemongers, James Whelan Butchers, Alternative Bread Company and Nourish health food store; as well as the full collection of Irish and international products from the multi-award winning Simply Better collection.
