Over the last decade, more burglaries were reported in Dublin than anywhere else in the county.
According to new research, 41% of break-ins were at addresses in the capital.
Home monitoring system PhoneWatch carried out the study.
It found that one in five properties in the capital has been targeted by burglars since 2009.
Dundrum, Pearse Street and Blanchardstown garda stations have investigated more than 15,000 reports of burglaries between them.
Research has shown that Tallaght is the base for many of the country's most prolific burglary gangs.
Thieves don't just use the nearby M50 motorway network to target homes and businesses.
They have also been raiding properties in the local area.
The report revealed that there has been a major decrease for more than two years.
Massive garda investigations, such as Operation Thor, into burglary gangs across the country seem to be having an impact.
