Omni Park Shopping Centre is a shopping centre and retail park in the Republic of Ireland. Located in Santry, in the north of Dublin close to the M50 motorway. It comprises over 7,300 square metres (79,000 sq ft) of retail space in 86 retail units[1] over 2 floors of an indoor shopping mall and also several outlets externally. Units range from 49 square metres (530 sq ft) to 2,357 square metres (25,370 sq ft).[1] Omni Park also features a selection of eateries, an Oratory and an 11 screen cinema called IMC. The centre has surface and multi-storey car parking.

In 2005, the Omni got a large extension adding another anchor store, H&M, and other smaller units. Most of the other units upstairs have failed and have not opened to this day. It's also home to NDLS.

Omni Park Shopping Centre's two main anchors are Penneys and Tesco Ireland[1] which replaced Crazy Prices. Other major retailers include Argos Extra and Boots which both opened in 2009. H&M opened in late November 2013 following last year's closure of Tempest.

Since 2012, Omni Park Shopping Centre is home to the Santry post office which relocated from nearby Santry Avenue.[2]
