Dalymount Park redevelopment to be finished in 2026

Words: Eva O’Beirne

The planned capacity of the new stadium will be 33 per cent higher than originally expected.

A brand-new Dalymount Park with an increased capacity of 7,880, at a cost of 40 million euro, will be open for business in 2026, according to a new plan released by Dublin City Council.

The whole stadium must be demolished, with a four-sided stadium development to follow.

Under DCC’s current plans, the new stadium will include upgraded club facilities and match-day accommodation to meet League of Ireland criteria, as well as an area for community facilities which will be housed in a separate on-site building. There will also be a north/south pitch reorientation.

“Bohemian FC is delighted that the design is now finally chosen and that we have been successful in working with Dublin City Council to both reduce costs to an achievable level, and to increase the capacity by 33% from the previously-planned level of 6,000,” the club said in a statement.

“The level of support for the Dalymount project remains unanimous across all major parties and there is a widespread recognition of the importance of it for Bohemian FC, for Dublin 7 and for the wider inner-city and north Dublin communities.”

“The stadium has been at the heart of these sporting and geographical communities since 1901 and will continue to be so into the distant future.”
