On Thursday, the store opened with an event that featured a live Q&A session with co-founder Thomas Beahon on the company's past experiences. According to Thomas, Dublin's “incredible sporting teams, culture, and style” made it an obvious choice for Castore to go to.

“We are excited to be opening our first concept store in Grafton Street as part of our growth expansion,” he stated.

“This offers a physical platform to showcase our products in an interactive way.” We're keen to maintain this development trajectory and establish the brand as a major player in the retail sports sector, so this is a really exciting time for Castore."

Important Irish personalities that loved dancing the night away with DJs included Olympian Greg O'Shea, broadcaster Eric Roberts, Irish athlete Amy O'Donoghue, and well-known influencers Elle Edwards, Anna Kirwan, Holly Carpenter, Laoise Quinn, and Nadia El Ferdaoussi.

The Grafton Street location marks the brand's debut into Dublin as part of its 25-store worldwide expansion strategy. Customers can witness firsthand how each product is made for maximum performance at the 1,690 square foot concept shop, which also features mainline stock, recent partnerships like Reiss x Castore, and team apparel from Leinster, FAI, McLaren, and Red Bull.
