Watch a local soccer match, attend a concert, check out an exhibition or cheer on the Munster Rugby Club on their home turf at this modern stadium.

Thomond Park is a rugby stadium and conference facility, best known as the heartland of the Munster Rugby Club. Be one of up to 25,600 spectators at a big match or concert or visit when the park is empty for quiet contemplation of the stadium’s design and on-site museum.

First established in 1938, the old Thomond Park hosted many historic matches, including the famous defeat of the New Zealand All Blacks in 1978. Today visit the elegantly designed modern stadium which reopened in 2008.

The traditions and local folklore of the original stadium continue to this day. Listen for older Munster Rugby Club devotees still referring to the terraces of the stadium as Popular Side, Stand Side, City End and Ballynanty End. The Popular Side gained notoriety throughout the league for heckles and comments hurled from the terrace by local spectators. More famous than the chatter, however, is the notorious silence that sweeps through Thomond Park when a player positions to kick a goal.

Find out what’s happening at Thomond Park during your visit to Limerick. You might catch a rugby or soccer match between local or international teams or a concert by a touring artist. Musicians who have performed here include Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and the Cranberries. Time your visit to Thomond Park for one of the stadium’s events, which include exhibitions, conventions, seminars and fashion shows.

Join a Thomond Park tour to gain behind-the-scenes access to the special Munster Experience Museum and see a fantastic collection of rugby memorabilia. Learn about the stadium’s history and the Munster Rugby Club’s legacy with an experienced tour guide. The museum is accessible without a tour on match days only. Book a tour any day of the week.

Thomond Park is located northwest of historic Limerick. Book tickets online or at the stadium’s ticket office. Local buses stop outside the stadium. Alternatively, walk about 20 minutes from the River Shannon waterfront and other city attractions such as St. Mary’s Cathedral, King John’s Castle and the Hunt Museum.
