The Ivy Collection, the fast-growing, Richard Caring-backed group, is set to make its debut in Ireland, with an opening in Dublin.

The company, which currently operates eight Brasseries or Grills and four Cafes, is understood to have lined up an opening in the city’s Dawson Street in the property that is set to house a new Barclays headquarters.

According to reports in Ireland, the company has agreed a rent of €500,000 per year for the primary retail area of 743sq m (8,000sq ft) on the ground floor.

The Ivy Collection is set to further strengthen its presence outside the capital, openings in Birmingham and Leeds.

The company has applied to open in Birmingham’s Temple Row, in the unit currently occupied by Louis Vuitton.

The group recently secured a site in Canary Wharf, in a purpose-built unit at one end of Pavilion Park.

At the same time, the company is at different stages of negotiations on sites in Exeter, Cheltenham, York and Harrogate. Whilst it recently secured new openings in Edinburgh and Manchester.

It comes as part of a significant year of expansion for the group, which has also lined up a site at The Field, a new ‘urban oasis’ being created by developer Allied London in Hardman Square, in the Spinningfields area of Manchester.

It recently opened The Ivy City Garden in Dashwood House in central London; with the The Ivy Tower Bridge at One Tower Bridge; The Ivy Bath Brasserie; and The Ivy on the Square in St Andrew Square, Edinburgh, set to open over the coming months.

Caren Leon and Seb Howard from CBRE acted on the Dublin deal.
