Throughout 2023 improving market fundamentals surrounding the retail sector and its asset types have contributed to increased investment volumes, which saw over €402 million invested in retail assets throughout Ireland over 36 transactions. This represents an 8% increase when compared with 2022 overall and was the highest annual total recorded in both volume and number of transactions since 2019. The most sizeable transaction of the year was the sale of a portfolio of six shopping centres in the third quarter to Davy for €74 million. Other deals of note in 2023 included the sale of a regional retail park portfolio to Realty Income for €45.9m and the acquisition of Marshes Shopping Centre Dundalk for €29 million by Davy. Retail assets accounted for close to 19% of overall investment turnover in Ireland in 2023, up significantly from just over 8% in 2022.

Irish investment volumes in the final three months of 2023 totalled €442m with 28 deals happening in the period, effectively unchanged compared to the levels of activity seen in Q3. For many investors 2023 is most likely to be remembered for the most aggressive ECB monetary tightening cycle in history which led to significant repricing of commercial real estate assets in Ireland and further afield. This repricing had a very negative impact on investment volumes last year. For the year as a whole investment volumes amounted to €2.1 Billion, down 45% compared to 2022 and the lowest level since 2013.
