|What's Dalymount Park Like?|
Dalymount Park or “Dalyer” as it
is affectionately known is one of the few football
grounds to retain
Des Kelly Carpets Stands
|Dalymount Park is
unlikely to receive any future developments, partly
because the combined capacity of the Jodi Stand and
Des Kelly Carpets Stand comfortably hold attendances
for league games, but also because the Aviva Stadium
has been hosting International football fixtures and
FAI Cup Finals since it opened in 2010. Given the
maintenance costs for an older stadium of this size it
may prove more cost effective for Bohemian FC to
consider selling the whole site and moving to a new
stadium elsewhere in the City and indeed a site for a
10,000 capacity stadium has been considered around the
Dublin Airport area, but with property prices being in
a slump at the moment the move seems unlikely. Dublin
would however, lose a very historic football ground if
the move does eventually happen.
|As far as we are aware away supporters are
accommodated in the Jodi Stand with the exception of
Dublin derby games where a larger following from clubs
such as Shamrock Rovers, Shelbourne & St Patricks
Athletic allows visiting fans to be switched to the
Des Kelly Carpets Stand at the St Peters School End.
The seating deck is bolted to the former paddock area
so leg room may be a little bit tight and although
there is a roof over half of the stand it will provide
little cover in the rain. There is a small amount of
terracing at the rear of the cover however as far as
we are aware this is closed off for safety reasons.

three bars located beneath the Jodi Stand. One of
these the Members Bar (in the middle of the
three) admits away fans. Otherwise there are a
number of shops and pubs in Phibsborough Road, which
is located behind the tramway end terrace, two
minutes walk from the Jodi Stand turnstiles, with a
further selection of shops and pubs to be found
further towards the City Centre surrounding
Drumcondra Railway Station, close to Croke Park,
around 5-10 minutes walk from the Jodi Stand along
the North Circular Road.
