Speed Limits in Your Area

Printer-friendly version

Dublin City Council has progressively introduced a 30km/h speed limit to many areas of the city. The recent adoption of the 2018 Special Speed Limit Bye-Laws on 2018 led to a further expansion of this speed limit on Thursday 25th October 2018.

The third phase of this deployment takes effect in certain areas of Harold’s Cross, Rathmines, Ranelagh, Ballsbridge, Clontarf, Killester, Coolock, Finglas, Kilmainham and Cabra. 

The default speed limit for most roads within the Dublin City Council area is 50km/h. Speed limit signs are erected at all points where there is a change of speed limit. Enforcement of the speed limits is a matter for An Garda Siochana.
