Book A Pavilion

Book A Pavilion


Getting exercise outdoors has never been more accessible to the South Dublin County community, thanks to ground-breaking technology and new state of the art pavilion changing and storage facilities for clubs.

Following an audit of the Council’s pitches and facilities within the County and having regard to the level of mixed usage at each location, Dodder Valley Park was identified as the first pavilion to be constructed as part of the Pavilion Construction Programme. 

Clubs will be able to book the pavilion at a fee of €15.00 per hour, which will give them use of a pitch for free.  Access to a referee’s room and storage facilities will also be provided.  Entry to the pavilion will be enabled through the online booking system, giving each club a unique secure code to enter upon arrival.
