The opening has been created through a partnership between Avoca, the oldest working woollen mill in Ireland, and The Loop at Dublin Airport. The 86-square-metre retail space involved a “substantial” investment by Avoca, and has been designed to replicate the core elements of the Avoca brand experience.

According to The Loop, Avoca is one of Ireland’s leading retail brands, and will strongly appeal to both Irish residents and visitors to Ireland. The retailer has 12 stores in Ireland in cities like Dublin, Belfast and Galway.

“We are thrilled to be bringing the Avoca brand to Dublin Airport,” said Anthony Kenny, Acting CEO of Aer Rianta International, parent company of The Loop. “Avoca shares our passion and commitment to creating memorable customer experiences in a luxury environment. This exciting new retail partnership delivers this, while also reflecting a unique sense of place within a busy international airport.” 

The new T2 store stocks a selection of Irish-made fashion items, lamb wool and cashmere throws, soft goods and ceramics.
