You can’t miss it.
The colourful ESB Substation on Caroline Street is available for rent, creating a unique opportunity to open a business in one of the quirkiest buildings in town.
The 182.30 sqm Art Deco property, which comes pre-decorated in a vast Shane O’Driscoll mural, was once home to Plugd Records and used by Triskel as an off-site gallery space, although it has lain empty for a number of years.
The bold artwork was unveiled last year as part of a Brown Thomas Cork collaboration with Cork City Council supported by the City Centre Placemaking Fund.
If you’re busily building a plan to open a business in the New Year, agents Cushman Wakefield describe the ESB Substation as a “superb retail/potential restaurant opportunity” in a prime location.

Nestled in one of the busiest pedestrian zones, between Oliver Plunkett Street and Maylor Street, neighbours include Brown Thomas, Idaho Café, Scoozi’s and The Oliver Plunkett.
Just around the corner from Patrick Street, Cork’s main retail thoroughfare, the property offers three storeys including a prime retail ground floor space with an open plan layout, storage and toilet facilities.
