Commercialisation At The Square Tallaght
The Square Towncentre is located in Tallaght, a densely populated urban conurbation which serves as a commuter suburb southwest of Dublin City Centre. Tallaght is the third-largest population centre in the country larger than the cities of Galway, Limerick, Waterford and Kilkenny.
It is a major commercial hub and social activity centre of west Dublin. The Square is the retail and leisure hub for the entire Tallaght area and is the de facto town centre where people live, work and shop. This is reflected in the significant volume of visitors with annual door counts of 22.2 million and car park numbers of 4.64 million.
South Dublin County Council, the public library and all the government services for the town are adjoining the centre. Tallaght Hospital employing 3,000 people and the Institute of Technology Tallaght (3,700 students) are both within a five-minute walk of the centre.
