Europe’s largest tensile sports facility
National Indoor Arena, Dublin
A home for the IRFU
The biggest of its kind in Europe, this high-performance indoor training facility is now home to Irish rugby.
For the past 20 years the Sevens have wandered in search of suitable training venues. In the past, a lack of indoor facilities meant the teams had no choice but to train on snow-covered pitches.
Now, both the men’s and women’s teams have a permanent all-weather home.
But they won’t be the only ones using the indoor pitch—
The Irish World Cup squad will be training in the centre from July 2019.
“It means we can have our High Performance staff, our technical staff all under the one roof, on site for when our teams come into train.
“We would anticipate we would have up to three teams training on site at any one time, for instance during the Six Nations period with the women’s team, the men’s team, the Under-20s.
“We’ll have both the men’s and women’s Sevens teams based out here permanently so it is a key piece of infrastructure for us because our national team has been peripatetic really.”
