Musgrave has a capacity of about 8,500 (mainly terracing) and is situated on Pearse Road in Ballyphehane.

A new all seated West Stand would be built in the first phase of a development to bring capacity to over 12,500. . However in February 2011 the Munster Branch announced that work on the West Stand would not go ahead as planned - due to difficulty raising funding. Instead a 4,000 seat temporary stand would be erected in the summer of 2011.
