The spectacular ice rink at Tallaght Stadium returns for the third year running and is open now until 26 January 2020. Once again South Dublin On Ice will be the centrepiece of this wonderful seasonal family activity which each year attracts thousands of skaters young and old to Tallaght. South Dublin On Ice @ Tallaght Stadium is a truly family affair as the ice rink is suitable for all ages; there is no minimum age limits for kids, however skaters under five years of age would need to be assisted by a family member. And to help the little ones get on the ice, skate aids, kids double blade skates, and polar bear ice chairs are available on a first come first served basis. All sessions on the ice rink last 45 minutes and skaters are asked to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to start.
The ice rink hosts a number of events to cater for a wide range of skaters including a Sensory Night and Accessible For All customer nights and also caters for birthday parties with group rates available and super cool birthday invites and envelopes to hand out to party goers.
The Glow on Ice event is new for 2019 where skaters can join this fluorescent party on ice. Neon vests and accessories will be provided. This will make for a wonderfully colourful and fun event and it is the first ever fluorescent ice skating event where you can party in neon. Glow On Ice takes place on 22 November at 6pm to 8pm.
“Why not visit our website at southdublinonice.com where you can book tickets and find directions to the venue”, said Sean Mulligan, from Profile Music Group Ltd, operator of South Dublin On Ice. “You’ll find a comprehensive Frequently Asked Questions section to answer many of your queries. The rink is located at Tallaght Stadium, where there is free parking onsite, however you can also take public transport to the venue with multiple bus routes passing nearby and the Tallaght stop on the Luas Redline is only a few minutes walk from the stadium.
“But there’s more. To help to get you to South Dublin On Ice @Tallaght Stadium we have introduced a 76 seater Double Decker bus for the 2019/2020 season which will pick you up and drop you back to your door for an additional fee. This will take a lot of the hassle out of group bookings for schools and clubs where the Skate & Bus Return is all organised and managed by the rink!” said Sean.

The ice rink is used by ice hockey players, figure skaters, and the general public. In the two years since the rink first came to town, thousands of people have visited the venue, adding to the winter season atmosphere in Tallaght.
