Shops and facilities
The Square launched a new student card initiative in September 2013. Current students can register for a [VIP Card] which can get them up to 25% off in many stores throughout the centre.
The Square is not only a commercial but a civic centre, in that the Office of the Revenue Commissioners have an office there and the Department of Social Protection, the Health Service Executive (Eastern Region) and FÁS share a building on the car park of level one. In addition, both the headquarters of South Dublin County Council and the Tallaght branch of South Dublin Libraries are adjacent to the site. A Civic Theatre is located close to The Square Town centre, which hosts theatre, music, dance, opera and comedy. The Adelaide and Meath Hospital is also located nearby.
