Dundalk Ice Dome was the first permanent ice arena in Ireland, located in Dundalk Retail Park, Dundalk, County Louth, Republic of Ireland. The Ice Dome aimed to become the centre of excellence for ice hockey in Ireland. It was home to the Irish national ice hockey squad and local team the Dundalk Bulls.[1] For 2007 and 2008, the venue was used as a secondary venue by the Belfast Giants.[2] The Ice Dome was closed in early May 2010 with plans to open under new management by Planet Ice. As of February 2014, this has yet to happen and the rink remained closed.
