Ireland MarketBeats

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 collapsed to only €161 million across 20 deals in the first quarter of 2024, marking the lowest levels seen since 2013. Although the first quarter of the year tends to be a slower one for transactions from a seasonality point of view, Q1 was particularly disappointing with transaction volumes approximately 80% below first quarter five- and ten-year averages. The Q1 volumes were hurt in particular by a distinct lack of deals in the office and industrial sectors with only approximately €20 million of transactions occurring across the two sectors combined. On the opposite end of the scale, the residential and retail sectors accounted for over 70% of the first quarter investment total.
