Nutgrove Shopping Centre is a shopping centre located in Rathfarnham, South Dublin, Ireland. Anchor tenants include Tesco, McDonald's, Dunnes Stores, Penneys and Argos. Since its grand opening in October 1984 at which the ribbon was officially cut by Coronation Street actress Helen Worth who portrays Gail McIntyre, then Tilsley, on the long running British soap opera, Nutgrove Shopping centre has been serving the shoppers of South County Dublin. The centre was built on part of the old Lamb's Jam orchards. The Centre is now more than 30 years old.

The first drive-through restaurant (a McDonald's drive-thru) in Europe opened at the centre in 1985.[1] As well in the discussions of the Social Welfare Bill of 1989, the experiment of the country's first social welfare services office being situated within this Shopping Mall environment are discussed.[citation needed] The centre has nearly 1,000 free surface car parking spaces, 70 shops and 5 restaurants. The most recent addition to Nutgrove Shopping Centre is a new Food Court opened in late 2008.

Transport[edit]

Nutgrove Shopping Centre is directly served by Dublin Bus routes 17, 61, 75 and 161 and nearby by route 14.
