Tallaght Stadium is a football stadium located in Dublin, Ireland. It is the home ground of Shamrock Rovers F.C., an Irish association football club founded in 1899.

The Main Stand of the stadium can be used by home and away fans, press, and club officials. It is covered. The East Stand, which was constructed in 2009 and which is also covered, features the capacity of 6,000 people.

The very first football game was played in the stadium in the summer of 2009, during which Shamrock Rovers beat Sligo Rovers with a score of 2-1. The match was visited by 3,000 people, and the first goal was scored by Gary Twigg. In the same year, the home team played a match against Real Madrid, when it lost with a score of 1-0. One of the most interesting things about that game is that it was Cristiano Ronaldo’s debut as a player of the club.

For the match between Bohemian FC and the home team, all of the 6,000 tickets were sold out. There also was the South Stand constructed for temporary uses for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. A scoreboard was installed in the stadium in the summer of 2013. Several times, temporary seats were installed in the stadium for increasing its total capacity. The stadium is also used for other kinds of sports, including rugby and American football.
