Thomond Park is the home ground of Munster Rugby, one of the most successful and best supported rugby clubs in the world. The famous venue, renowned internationally for its unique history and atmosphere, has been redeveloped and now boasts an increased capacity of 25,600 plus an extensive range of conference & banqueting facilities that have further enhanced its glowing reputation.
Since that magical reopening night when Munster played the All Blacks in 2008 witnessed by a national television audience of over one million viewers, Thomond Park has hosted a galaxy of events that has truly established the stadium as a world class multi – purpose venue.
From international rugby with Ireland v The Barbarians, the historic staging of two international football matches with the Republic of Ireland, hosting The Special Olympics Opening Ceremony, to concerts with performances by P!NK, Elton John, Rod Stewart and Bob Dylan, the stadium has delivered on its promise to attract the very best in terms of sporting and entertainment experiences.
The increased capacity has also allowed record levels of supporters to attend Munster Rugby matches, and in November 2010, Thomond Park witnessed another historic and memorable occasion when Munster played and triumphed over the touring international Australian team adding yet another heroic landmark to the legendary reputation of the venue.
