Mods & Minis, now close on 20 years in business, are returning to Killarney Outlet Centre from Deerpark and the town centre base, adjacent to Killarney bus and rail station, is an ideal business location. They now occupy the former Tiger store on the ground floor.

The new Mods & Minis arrival follows the opening of a 4,734sq ft unit Born store at the centre which has been exceptionally busy and hugely popular with fashion conscious shoppers.  

Killarney Outlet Centre Manager, Paul Sherry, has welcomed the return of Mods & Minis and wished owners, Deirdre and Thomas McCloskey, every success with the venture.

“Following on the arrival of Born, this is another great endorsement of Killarney Outlet Centre which is under new ownership and is really moving forward at a very fast pace,” he said.

“We will have more exciting news coming very shortly and it’s great to welcome new tenants who will attract new customers and add to the overall shopping experience at Killarney Outlet Centre,” Mr Sherry added.
