    What level are you coming from/looking to play at?

    Not really many clubs in those areas, Guinness's home ground is the Crumlin Road so not too far away.

    low enough level, my last club was Balincollig.

    Not looking for a competitive club, i just enjoy playing.

    Guinness are J3 and J4 so an alright level for you, can't really think of anymore that would be suitable except maybe coolmine might be reachable.

    2 clubs really that I can think of is Guiness as said or Coolmine near Phoenix park. Coolmine would be a decent junior club big enough and plenty ofteams for you to fit into. Guiness would be a smaller club and play lower down the divisions in Junior rugby and another good club

    Looks like Guinness RFC is much closer to where i'm living.

    Thanks for the input, will be good to play again.

    I'm living in the same area. Guinness are the only real option, if you don't want to bus it.
    I've spent the last couple of seasons hoofing it over to Unidare on the north side by bus, and it ain't too bad.

    Questionable definition of short is questionable

    OP, if you are close to Guinness then you are also not too far away from St. Mary's College, Terenure College, Parkmore and CYM.

    I am with CYM and like Guinness we are a small club plus there are other sport sections within both our clubs; this may interest you if you want more than rugby. Parkmore are a small club as well and play their home games at Terenue College's grounds. If you want a slightly bigger club or want to play at a slightly higher level then Terenure or St. Mary's are better suited for you.

    Whatever club you go for, you will be in safe hands.
