With a population of over 70,000, Tallaght is Dublin’s largest suburb and has grown steadily since the 1960s.

The Arena Centre includes ground floor retail units, three office blocks and a 119-bedroom hotel. Specifically, this consists of:


The Arena Centre’s retail capacity consists of four large retail warehouse units and five smaller retail units. Overall, their total area adds up to 124,500 sq ft and prominent tenants include some of Ireland’s most well-known retailers. As well as Lidl and Maxi Zoo, these include anchor tenant Woodies DIY.


Three separate blocks offer 94,000 sq ft of modern Grade A office space across three blocks. Two are occupied by Bank of Ireland while the third houses the Irish headquarters of Woodies DIY. Upward-only leases apply to both tenants. Bank of Ireland has been a significant local employer for over 25 years.

A strong and assured income stream

Fronting onto the N81, The Arena Centre enjoys easy access to the M50, the capital’s orbital motorway and Dublin city centre.
