Hibernia REIT was floated on the stockmarkets in December 2013. It raised €385 million in its IPO, €220 million of which it had invested by September 2014.[7]

Kevin Nolan joined the company as CEO in November 2015, from WK Nolan REIT.[10]

In 2017, Hibernia REIT worked with Twitter to repurpose the offices at Cumberland Place, Dublin 2. The finished space was awarded a LEED Platinum award.[11]
