Pay parking is governed by the Road Traffic Act, 1994 which makes no provision for “residents only” parking.
Residents can apply for Residents Parking Permits and Visitors Permits, valid for use in their pay parking area. The present fee for a residents parking permit is €40 for an annual permit or €75 for a two-year permit. For non-residents/non-permit holders payment will be on a Pay & Display basis.
Visitors permits, valid for parking in a Paid Parking space during operational hours, will be available to residents at a cost of €2.00 each, sold in multiples of four, subject to conditions. Each permit will be valid for 1 day. Also, short stay parking may be paid for by Pay & Display ticket.
Up to 120 visitors tickets may be purchased per year by each person who provides up to date proof of being a resident of a particular Paid Parking area. (i.e. a utility bill or bank statement.)
Residents Parking Permits and Visitors permits can be purchased by registering on the GoParkIt.com website.
