Tallaght is the largest and newest town in South County Dublin.
Home to around 70,000 people; it sits 10km from Dublin city centre.
Here you will find one of Ireland’s largest shopping centres with an array of shops, a new modern cinema, theatre, and an excellent library. Due to its rapid growth during recent decades Tallaght now has a thriving local arts, cultural, sports, and economic outlook. Also located a short distance from the stadium is the Institute of Technology Tallaght.
If it’s a good time you’re looking for when you get here, Tallaght has no shortage of great restaurants, clubs and pubs as well as other activities for all ages such as bowling, quasar, golf, football golf, pitch and putt etc…
Tallaght also has lots of green areas: Tymon Park, Sean Walsh Park and Bancroft Park, along with the scenic Bohernabreena reservoir and Dublin mountains also close by. The area has been described as a “ country experience on the edge of the city.”
The stadium is located in the very heart of Tallaght, surrounded by modern construction developments built in the last decade that now house hotels, shops, housing and office facilities.
It is a major visitor attraction in the county and provides a focal point for the people of the area who regularly come to the venue to support Shamrock Rovers.
As well as football the stadium hosts a wide range of community activities, which add considerably to the social fabric of the lives of the people of Tallaght.
Since opening in 2009 the stadium continues to be a tremendous asset, as well as a source of pride, to the local community.
