Lidl Property

We are always looking to expand and improve our existing store network in order to satisfy the needs of our customers.



Regional Distribution Centre

The opening of our state-of-the-art new distribution centre in Newbridge is one of the largest buildings in Ireland and our single biggest investment made here since entering the Irish market in 2000. The project created over 2,000 jobs during the building phase, followed by the creation of a further 100 new full-time roles on completion. These new full-time positions are in addition to the 250 permanent staff who will move over from our existing distribution centre in Newbridge.

Sustainability and energy efficiency were fundamental in the design of the new distribution centre. We have invested €1 million in a rooftop solar panel array - the largest rooftop solar array in this country. Over 25% of the centre's energy requirements will now be generated by solar power and the remainder by our commitment to 100% green electricity. Other sustainability and biodiversity initiatives include heat recovery from our refrigeration, natural refrigerants used in our coldrooms, a commitment of zero waste to landfill, underground rainwater storage tanks, 4 acres of wildflower meadows, 8 EV chargers and woodland areas with over 5,500 native trees.

Mullingar Distribution Centre Extension

Earlier this year, Lidl Ireland was please to open one of the country’s biggest state-of-the-art distribution centres in Mullingar, equivalent in size to nine Aviva Stadiums or four Croke Parks, on the back of an €80-million investment. The newly extended facility at Robinstown has led to the creation of 100 new jobs and has increased the capacity of Lidl’s facility to around 62,000 square metres, making it one of the largest buildings in the State. It is part of our €550-million Irish 3-year expansion plan, first announced by Lidl in 2021. As part of this plan, we’re also staying on track with the openings of several new stores this year with Clonmel, Bettystown and Dock Road, Limerick opening earlier this year. In addition, we relocated the Lidl store in West City Retail Park, Ballincollig and redeveloped the store on Waterford Road, Kilkenny.


Originally built in 2008 to service stores in the north Dublin, the midlands and the northwest, the Mullingar centre has expanded over the past 10 years to keep up with the retailer’s growing Irish footprint. We invested €1 million in a football-pitch-sized rooftop solar panel array consisting of almost 3,000 panels, which reduces our carbon output by some 220 tonnes annually, enough to power more than 218 homes each year, making a significant contribution towards a more sustainable future by harnessing solar power to meet a substantial portion of our energy requirements. This investment demonstrates Lidl’s commitment to sustainability, allowing the retailer to generate up to 25% of the new facility's energy requirement by solar power, making Lidl’s Mullingar distribution centre one of the most sustainable logistics facilities in Europe.

Farm to Fork Experience

Using land at our Regional Distribution Centre in Newbridge, County Kildare, and supported by Agri Aware, Lidl has turned over 8 acres of land into a free educational farm experience which primary school children from 2nd to 6th Class can enjoy and explore.

The on-site education delivery is guided by the SESE curriculum to deliver an outdoor classroom experience. Pupils will learn through a combination of hands-on activities and discussions led by Agri Aware's Education Officers.

Young visitors can tour the specially designed farm where they can trace the farm to fork story, beginning with the soil.

Each educational experience will end with a behind-the-scenes tour of the Lidl Regional Distribution Centre - featuring The Lidl Farm train. This unique experience will provide pupils with an insight into the journey of everyday products from the farm onto the shelves of their local Lidl store.
