Tallaght Stadium

Key facts

Club: Shamrock Rovers FC | Opening: 2009 | Capacity: 6,000 seats

History and description

Tallagh Stadium was built to provide Shamrock Rovers with a new home after they had been forced into exile when their old ground Glenmalure Park was sold to property developers in 1987.

Construction of the new stadium started in 2000, but was ceased one year later due to legal issues. It took seven years to solve these before works could recommence.

The first match at Tallagh Stadium was played on the 13th of March 2009 (Shamrock Rovers vs Sligo Rovers), but only one stand had been completed then. It took until the summer of 2009 for the stadium to be ready and officially inaugurated.

Getting there

Tallaght Stadium is located in the Dublin suburb Tallaght, about 10 kilometres south-west of central Dublin.

Tallaght Stadium lies along the N81, which runs from Dublin’s city centre in south-western direction. The stadium is situated on the left side of the road about 3 kilometres after passing the M50 motorway.

If coming from the M50, take exit 11 toward Tallaght, and turn west onto the N81 following for Tallaght.

If using public transport, the stadium can be reached with the Luas tram.  The last stop on the Red Line, Tallaght, is a short walk from the stadium. You can catch the Red Line at Connelly and Heusten railway stations, or from, for example, Abbey Street.

Address:  Whitestown Way, Tallaght, Dublin 24
