Dublin City Centre Offers Christmas On-Street Parking Saving

Motorists can make Christmas savings this December thanks to Dublin City Council’s Christmas Parking Promotion.

Anyone can park in on-street car parking spaces for €1 per hour every Saturday and Sunday in December in Dublin city centre’s core trading area. This comprises over 800 on-street parking spaces. A special promotion sticker has been put on parking meters where the offer applies for easy recognition.

This offer means you get a reduction of €1.90 per hour on Saturday and €0.40 on Sunday. It would give you a saving of €5.70 on a three-hour shopping trip on a Saturday.

Parking Tag customers can make even more savings. Parking Tag is Dublin City Council’s cashless, mobile phone-based parking system which allows you to top up by your mobile. Parking Tag customers get €1 on street parking per hour every Saturday and Sunday in December in the wider city centre area. (‘yellow zone’ – see www.dublincity.ie/RoadsandTraffic/Parking)
