The Rams were created in February 2007 to add depth to the newly created Irish League. Their home rink is the Dundalk Ice Dome and they are one of three teams that play out of Dublin. The Flyers IHC and Latvian Hawks are also based in Dublin. Their Club President, John Podedworny, is also the President of Dunkin' Donuts. In addition, the Rams have an A team in the NHL Development Division.

In the inaugural 2007-08 season, the Rams finished with 11 wins, 1 overtime loss, and 4 losses, and were positioned in 2nd place in the IIHL with 34 points. The Rams were the only team during the regular season to defeat the Dundalk Bulls when they did so on February 16th, 2008. The Dublin Rams went on to defeat the Flyers IHC in the IIHL semi finals by a score of 4-1. In the first ever all Ireland final, the Rams lost to the Dundalk Bulls by a score of 6-3 in a well-fought game.
