Fallon & Byrne will open a “grab-and-go” food outlet in Connolly Station over the coming months.

A spokeswoman for the high-profile group told Independent.ie today: “The plan is to open by the end of the summer, depending on the handover date of the unit.”

She said it will be “an express format” with a large coffee counter, and will primarily focus on meal solutions.

These include “chefs' range of breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert products, all of which are made in-house; bread from the Fallon & Byrne bakery; picnic items like cheese and charcuterie; as well as wine and beer.”

It is understood that work began on the new unit in recent weeks at the station, and it will be situated in some of the station’s old ticket booths.

Fallon & Byrne’s flagship outlet is based on Exchequer Street in Dublin’s city centre, with a foodhall at ground floor level, a wine cellar in the basement as well as a restaurant and ballroom upstairs.

It also has a restaurant and café in the People’s Park, Dun Laoghaire and a food hall and eatery located in the Swan Centre in Rathmines.

It is understood that the group have ambitious plans for expansion.
