GYM+COFFEE is thrilled to ANNOUNCE THE OPENING OF A NEW POP-UP STORE at the Crescent Shopping Centre on Saturday, October 5th and they are inviting all of Limerick to come that day and help celebrate the opening!

This is Gym+Coffee’s third permanent pop-up retail venture. Their flagship store opened July 7, 2018, in Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin and is now a staple on the Dundrum retail landscape. Since then, they have hosted two further temporary pop-up stores in Arnotts on Henry Street, the most recent in August this year. 

Following their successes in Dublin, they launched a permanent pop-up in Mahon Point Shopping Centre, Cork and they are so excited to be bringing their unique brand of lifestyle, community + athleisurewear to Limerick City and setting down some roots in this youthful, innovative and exciting part of Ireland.

Diarmuid Mc Sweeney of “Gym+Coffee said, “We couldn’t be more excited to open our latest pop-up in Limerick in October. We love bringing our retail to new places but it’s all about our community really. They tell us where they want us to go and Limerick was the firm favourite this time. We can’t wait to meet everyone there.”

Head of Community

This year, they announced the appointment of our Head Of Community, Brian O’Driscoll. Brian has been a long-time supporter of Gym+Coffee and he lives and breathes the Make Life Richer attitude. He is a galvanising force in Ireland and they could not be more proud to have him on the team as a partner, supporter and most importantly, a member of the community.

Through their annual programme of events and via new and exciting partnerships, they are building a network of people dedicated to our Make Life Richer motto and who are well and truly making it their own.


The community is built on balance: they look for ways to live an active, social, adventurous and relaxed life. They run events throughout the year to give their community an opportunity to interact with each other, and get out and experience Ireland. 

Their Summer Stretch SeriesAdventure WeekendsMLR Map and partnerships with events like Wellfest are just some of the ways we Make Life Richer.

This year they hosted our first Make Life Richer Day as the culmination + celebration of their third Summer Stretch Series.
